Tottenham Hotspur secured Champions League football for next season with an emphatic victory over already relegated Norwich City on the final day of the season.
Dejan Kulusevski bagged a brace either side of a Harry Kane strike before a Heung-Min Son brace made it 5-0 late on to Antonio Conte’s side who did what they had to do after usurping Arsenal in the top four in the final weeks of the season. Arsenal won their game, so it was paramount for Spurs that they did the business.
Do you think Conte will guide Spurs to silverware?
Swedish winger Kulusevski was replaced after 68 minutes, but his performance was lauded by journalist Rob Guest who had the following to say on the forward: “What a goal from the Swede as he cuts inside from the right and finds the top corner. Sensational.”
TIF thoughts on Rob Guest’s comment…
Kulusevski had 50 touches in the 68 minutes he played as well as winning eight out of nine of his ground duels, showing just how much of a nuisance he was to the Norwich players and how key he was to Spurs’ performance today.
Although his performance will be celebrated as one of the best if not the best player on the pitch, all the Spurs fans will care about is they ensured they will be feasting at the top table of European football next season as Conte takes his first full season in the dugout.
