Tottenham manager Pochettino: Liverpool unaffected by Premier League blow

Tottenham Hotspur survived a spirited second half comeback from Everton to claim the point that saw them seal fourth place in the Premier League and earn their Champions League place for next season.

The Londoners barely had time to react, and they could do nothing but watch Everton's second sail into the net just three minutes later, this time thanks to Tosun.

Only a loss and eight-goal swing for Arsenal would have seen the Champions League finalists drop out of the top four, but the hosts showed character to hold on to fourth place despite suffering from European hangover their success at Ajax on Wednesday.

But former Liverpool FC star Lawrenson is backing Spurs to wrap up a top-four finish with a comfortable 2-1 win over Everton in front of their home fans in their final game of the season.

A collapse of their league form towards the end of the season robbed Tottenham of any hope of maintaining their unlikely title challenge.

This immediately led to fears over his participation in the Champions League final and this would have been a major blow since Harry Kane is also recovering from an injury and remains a doubt for the Madrid clash.

A hotel guest said the man had a long white beard and the women were dressed in black, and described them as "strange". Police are not looking for anyone else in relation to the deaths and post-mortem examinations have been ordered.

"What we have achieved this season - top four and final of Champions League - it is hard to assess now but in time the people will realise what we achieve". Moura, however, can not think about resting yet as his side are set to play two of their most important games of the season. We need a break from him for as long as he's existent. They have an unbelievable squad and an unbelievable manager in Klopp. They then had a gruelling game where they put in a huge amount of effort, and it all ended with a very emotional victory.

"I think we can make history", he said. "What we have achieved this season - top four and final of the Champions League - it is hard to assess now but in time the people will realise all that we achieve".

However, all Spurs need is an unbeaten result against Everton, as even a draw would be enough to ensure Mauricio Pochettino's men finish above their North London rivals on the Premier League table.

"The top two teams have set a standard higher than before and we have to take up the next challenge".

"Of course the most important thing is that we apply common sense, we have the plan and we are going to deliver the plan, so the players arrive in the best condition to try to win the final".
