Tottenham bid farewell to White Hart Lane with victory over Manchester United

May 14, 2017 at 18:30, closes the program of the day's game central match 37 round of the English Premier League, in which Tottenham will fight against Manchester United at the home stadium, "White Hart Lane".

Matteo Darmian is hoping to spoil Tottenham's farewell party when Manchester United arrive for the final match at White Hart Lane. Marouane Fellaini is suspended for the match as well, and Paul Pogba will also be absent after he returned home following the death of his father.

The match is likely to come too soon for full-back Danny Rose, who is nearing a return to fitness following a long-term knee injury.

Spurs only confirmed their switch to Wembley at the end of last month and the club have been keen to emphasise they are only taking on a new stadium, rather than moving to a different location. For a long-standing lover of any club to exit what is a kind of second home, is to feel the loss of friends and family who first guided us through the turnstiles and into the tribe - it is to feel old.

Here's what fans on social media had to say about his performance at White Hart Lane. White Hart Lane is a special place for us and it will be sad to say goodbye to this famous old stadium.

And Kane was delighted to be the player who scored the victor in Spurs' farewell to the Lane after finding the net against United for the first time in his career.

Soon the ground opened in 1899 will be fully engulfed by the structure next door, with impressive progress on Spurs' stunning new home set to accelerate after this 2,533rd and final match.

Guaranteed to finish outside the top four for the third time in four seasons, Jose Mourinho's team must now beat Ajax in the Europa League final to procure a place in the Champions League.

"We so badly wanted to win and now we get to enjoy it and say thanks to the fans for an fantastic season, especially at the Lane".

Manager Mauricio Pochettino added: "Though today is tinged with sadness, we are all excited about the new stadium and the journey ahead of us".

Manchester United might be a bit emotional for this match but not in a maudlin, sentimental way.

He said: "We're still disappointed about last Friday".

Tottenham and Manchester United will square off at White Hart Lane on Sunday with both teams coming off disappointing results.

Tottenham will want to go out with a bang against a United side potentially distracted by their hopes of securing Champions League qualification by winning the Europa League. Four of the seven games have finished 0-0.
