Mourinho, whose changes included 19-year-old defender Axel Tuanzebe lining up in midfield, saw his side fall behind in the sixth minute. Only they improve their position and will enjoy the new facilities, and that is fantastic for the fans.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino added: "Though today is tinged with sadness, we are all excited about the new stadium and the journey ahead of us". "We've been thinking about it a lot and when the new stadium opens it will help us a lot to reach the next level", he said.

"It was hard training from Monday to Wednesday, to be happy and start to focus only on United as we missed a big opportunity to put pressure on Chelsea and to win the league". There was nothing to regret, I am very happy with the performance of the players. "If I feel something is special and I need to take it and keep it in my house, of course I will do".

"It was tough because it was for different reasons", he said. They would prefer not to leave their hopes of Champions League football up to that final, but they may not have a choice.

We will make Wembley our home and start to feel comfortable there. When you look at our points tally compared to last season, obviously we're disappointed losing out on the title but we are growing.

Mourinho on top four as Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool scrap
However, should Arsenal win their game in hand and Liverpool slip up in their remaining two matches, a final play-could be needed. Arsenal travel to Stoke this weekend before finishing the campaign with two home games against Sunderland and Everton.

Erik Lamela is also still recovering from a long-term hip problem while Harry Winks won't play again this season due to an ankle ligament injury. He is the only Spurs player with more than two key passes per 90 minutes, of players with at least 1000 minutes played, according to WhoScored.com.

'My first game at White Hart Lane in 2007 was incredible, it was the club I'd always wanted to play for growing up. "We were very strong". To see it go in was special. "We only have a few days to recover but we have to be ready".

Whatever the outcome, Sunday will be a deeply poignant occasion as Spurs say goodbye to a ground graced by such club greats as Jimmy Greaves, Danny Blanchflower, Steve Perryman, Glenn Hoddle and Paul Gascoigne.

In terms of this season, however, Sunday's game against United could be something of a dead rubber for Spurs, who will concede the Premier League title to Chelsea if the Blues beat West Brom on Friday. The hard way is to try to develop talent and try to create a team and build a winning mentality, not only in the players but at the whole club. "But if we can be as focused and fluent as today then it will be hard (for Middlesbrough)".
