Hazard delivers Twitter verdict on Tottenham 2016-17 campaign after Man United win

By Will Butcher

Micky Hazard has lauded Tottenham for achieving second place in England’s top tier this season, their highest finish in the Premier League to date.

Spurs mathematically secured second place with a 2-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon, in their final ever match at White Hart Lane.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side will now play their home games at Wembley Stadium next season, as they wait for construction to finish on a new state-of-the-art stadium.

Posting on his personal Twitter account, former Spurs star Hazard congratulated his old side for their lofty finish, describing the north London side’s achievement as “amazing”.

Spurs earned all three points in their last game thanks to goals from Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane, which proved too much for United despite Wayne Rooney’s consolation.

Finishing behind only London rivals Chelsea, Spurs have shown improvement to go one better than last season and finish in the runners-up spot after losing out late to Arsenal last season.

A trip to the King Power Stadium on Thursday night is next for Spurs, as they look to go one better than the 1-1 draw against Leicester at the Lane back in October.

With only two games still to play, Spurs then travel to Yorkshire on Sunday to face Marco Silva’s relegated Hull City side.
