Tottenham beats Newcastle 1-0, secures Champions League…

Spurs secured their top-four place and Champions League football for next season at Wembley, but Pochettino's celebrations will have been muted slightly over the fitness of Trippier.

"It will be another challenge, another massive challenge because it will be the same as it was to play at Wembley".

"To achieve the top four is a massive achievement", Pochettino told reporters. "I want to congratulate the players first of all and then I want to congratulate the staff that make it possible. That is why I say a big thank you to the players and to the staff".

"For the club it is a massive thing to go and move to the new stadium and play Champions League". It will be another challenge because it will be the same as playing at Wembley.

Spurs' hopes would not be completely over should Liverpool lift the trophy, as Benfica or FC Basel could fail to make it through the qualifying rounds and make the group-stage draw.

Pochettino picked out Moussa Sissoko as one of Tottenham's key players in a match where the France worldwide was called upon to show his defensive qualities as often as his creative ones.

Pochettino said that he and the players were looking forward to their homecoming. "For me one of the best today was Moussa Sissoko".

Lukas has won the Preakness six times. "If I like the way he comes out of that, then we'll take a shot at the Belmont". Good Magic was sired by 2007 Preakness victor Curlin, but trainer Chad Brown won't commit to the Preakness just yet.

Trippier has impressed in the Spurs defence this season, despite battling with summer signing Serge Aurier for a first-team place.

A surprisingly much-changed Chelsea side from the one that beat Liverpool four days ago fell behind when Laurent Depoitre forced the ball home five minutes into the second half.

So proud about this group of players, to achieve the top four in that condition, despite many things that happened during the season, if you are not strong mentally or physically, and you show (don't) passion (or) care for this situation, it is hard to achieve what we did today'.

One of Tottenham's longest-serving players, Hugo, captain of Club and country, was in fine form as we battled to a decisive 1-0 victory against the Toon. To have 14 attempts against Tottenham at home means something we did was right.

"We had some good chances, and especially we created enough situations to have even more chances with the final pass in the final third", said Benitez. It is a pity.

"But two penalty decisions that for us were clear, but they were not given".
