Ivorian Toure could not land the dream goal to cap his splendid City career but City's two first-half strikes, separated by a Leonardo Ulloa header for Brighton, ensured another record for most goals in a Premier League campaign.

Mauricio Pochettino is already planning a post-season celebration with his Spurs coaching staff after Sunday's final game of the season. And for Spurs, victory would secure a league placing that deserves enormous credit following a season playing in the unfamiliar surroundings of the cavernous Wembley.

Pochettino knows his side will still be judged for a lack of trophies, but says his side are in a process and finishing top of the tree in London is a big tick.

"Next season, it will be fantastic for Tottenham to be playing in a new stadium and in the Champions League".

Newcastle had little to play for but gave Tottenham a fright and had enough chances to take something from the game.

Pochettino said he had "an unbelievable party" at Southampton when they finished eighth in 2013-14 and that it may be time for Tottenham to do so as well. "It is not enough, because we want to win trophies and titles, but in football, winning titles is not the only thing - even though this group of people and fans deserve some trophies".

"The first step is always to be competitive, reduce the gap with the top four, that was the challenge four years ago", he said. For me it's about the people with knowledge about football, the fans to judge better than me.

Commenting on his hopes for the race, Horner said the team's long runs give them hope that they can play a part in the race. "Yep. Obviously, Friday paints one picture but you're never really sure what's going to happen.

Sunday's visitors Leicester have far less to celebrate, with the Foxes ensconced in mid-table and capable of moving up only one league position on the final matchday. In the end we could create and feel that Wembley was home and is home now.

"We're looking forward to the next game".

"We've had a good season, our performances have been very good".

Iheanacho could start after impressing in the midweek win over Arsenal, but Leicester will be missing Marc Albrighton through suspension and Wilfred Ndidi due to a hamstring strain.

Harry Winks (ankle) continues rehab and remains unavailable.

Tottenham will assess the fitness of fullback Kieran Trippier before they face ninth-placed Leicester at Wembley. Tottenham romped to a 6-1 win on that occasion, with Harry Kane scoring four.
