Rafa Benitez: Newcastle '100% deserved something' from Tottenham defeat

Harry Kane Spurs

Kane seals Spurs' place back in Champions League

Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game to condemn Rafa Benitez's Newcastle to a fourth successive league defeat at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday.

"Absolutely, 100% we deserved something", said Benitez.

"It's not easy to carry on with five games to play". Today I am thinking to try to enjoy what we achieve.

However, there were still a few scares to survive for Spurs men as Ayoze Perez fluffed his lines with a great chance to equalise and Matt Richie saw claims for a penalty as he went down under a challenge from Lloris waved away.

"In the games that we couldn't win, we were very close".

The 27-year-old has been so impressive this season that he is now considered as genuine competition for Kyle Walker in the right-back position for England, but his injury last night could affect his dreams of representing his country in Russian Federation this summer. "Maybe from the outside no one expected us to be in the top four again this season". We will need time.

"Against Tottenham, from the first minute until the last, you could see from the touchline they were doing what they had to do - and we deserve credit for that". We have the experience now to build and create something new.

Game 6 of that series, if necessary, would be Friday in Philadelphia, with a potential Game 7 scheduled for Sunday back in Boston. On Tuesday night, with Harden struggling, Chris Paul showed that he is the extra superstar that Houston was previously missing.

However, he has been relegated to a supporting role this season in a supremely talented squad that has now racked up 31 wins, 105 goals and 97 points to beat Chelsea's hitherto records of 30 wins, 103 goals and 95 points.

The visitors continued to look risky but Tottenham found themselves with a fine chance to open the scoring, but Kane uncharacteristically fluffed his lines when through on goal and only Martin Dubravka to beat, kicking at fresh air.

'The first step is to be competitive and to reduce the gap with the top four, ' he said after Harry Kane's 28th Premier League goal of the season. "I'm sure we in the club, and these players and staff, have the expertise to construct and create [something] in a new building, to make it feel like home".

Spurs already knew they would end another season without a trophy but they have at least ensured a third consecutive Champions League campaign for next season. "It's a massive congratulations and a massive thank you to the staff too". It's a massive effort.

"Massive congratulations and thank you to all the staff because they have been fantastic and have worked so hard for almost 38 games away from home".

The result moved Spurs up to third and put paid to fears of their season ending in failure following a slump in form while setting up a season of Champions League football in their new stadium.
