Spurs went from being one of three clubs fighting for the Premier League title to slipping so far down they nearly lost their Champions League spot to one of their top-six rivals.

A hot and cold first season under Marco Silva comes to an end this weekend when Everton travel to London to face off against a Spurs side on cloud nine.

"I know very well it's hard to stop to think after all we achieved on Wednesday but our responsibility is to be ready".

"People need to realise what this group of payers is achieving".

"We're in a good position and need to take the game, be competitive with all our energy", he said.

However, Manchester City's impressive 4-1 victory away at Brighton meant Pep Guardiola's team just edged the Reds by a single point and retained their title.

Spurs will go into Sunday's game still celebrating Wednesday's stunning Champions League comeback to beat Ajax which set up an all-English final against Liverpool in Madrid next month.

Jurgen Klopp's side finished the season on 97 points following a 2-0 win over Wolves at Anfield, with Sadio Mane grabbing both goals.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has allayed fears Dele Alli could miss the Champions League final.

Footage was uploaded by @evertonspares last night showing Toffees fans chanting "you almost won the league" at Liverpool supporters in a train station.

'This is what we've done and we don't want to stop.

"It's a good game for us to finish well", he said.

As if to compound that irony, it was a clumsy foul by one of the players the club and fans are desperate to keep, André Gomes, that handed Christian Eriksen the kind of dead-ball opportunity that he relishes and thereby deprived the visitors of three points.

European joy that carried through to the last day of the Premier League, but was tested at times. Everyone has the summer off but we have to come back with a different mentality and different attitude of being a Man United team.

Despite not making any signings this season, Spurs secured Champions League qualification for a fourth consecutive year, whilst also reaching the final of Europe's premier competition for the first time in their history.

Obviously you'll have the big players getting stuck into Man City and Liverpool (or laying either of them) but the other eight fixtures are effectively dead-rubbers with teams having no more than an extra place or two up the table to play for.

"We meet again July 1 and we'll work back to where we belong".
