Kane the hero as Spurs claim top-four spot

Striker's 28th goal of season combined with Chelsea's draw mean Tottenham Hotspur qualify for UEFA Champions League

Harry Kane was the hero as Tottenham Hotspur confirmed their place in the top four with a 1-0 win over Newcastle United at Wembley Stadium.

Kane's 28th goal of the season combined with Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town mean Spurs are up to third and assured of a UEFA Champions League place next season. 

It might have been different had Jonjo Shelvey's 14th-minute free-kick not struck the post and bounced clear.

Newcastle continued to threaten and Hugo Lloris was forced into a diving save to keep out a Jamaal Lascelles header.

But after Kane mishit a one-on-one with Martin Dubravka, the striker curled Son Heung-min's pass into the top corner to move to within three of Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot.

Newcastle stay 10th having already secured their PL status.
