Pochettino vows to celebrate Spurs success

Ivorian Toure could not land the dream goal to cap his splendid City career but City's two first-half strikes, separated by a Leonardo Ulloa header for Brighton, ensured another record for most goals in a Premier League campaign.

Pochettino told Football.London when asked if Foyth could make his debut for Tottenham against Leicester: "There is many temptations to give the possibilities to many players to play that don't play consistently during the season but at the same time it is in our hands to finish third".

Spurs will be in the Champions League for the third straight season, playing host to Europe's elite competition in a new stadium being built on the site of its White Hart Lane ground.

Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham (22-8-7) welcome Leicester City (12-11-14) to north London on Sunday for the final match of the season.

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. "It's true that from the beginning nobody believed in us because everyone was anxious about playing at Wembley for many, many games".

"I think Real Madrid are the favourites to win the Champions League final and I want them to win because Liverpool are our rivals in the Premier League", Pochettino said.

"I think it is not the only thing in football to win titles, but I think after to win in every single aspect I think this club, these group of players, people working here and the fans deserve to celebrate some trophy".

He said: "One way is to spend money".

"It's a different way".

"We were trying to improve and we wanted to provide exciting moments for the fans watching the team play. That is my focus until now".

Pochettino also said he will hold talks with Toby Alderweireld next week with the defender likely to leave the club this summer. "But I still have a three-year contract".

Harry Kane believes Spurs deserve more credit for their achievements this term, and Pochettino was a happy to lavish with praise everyone involved the team's effort. "But tomorrow, I don't know what's going to happen".

Spurs have a few doubts for the clash with Leicester as Mousa Dembele (ankle), Serge Aurier (hamstring), Kieran Trippier (knee) and Victor Wanyama (thigh) are all doubts.
