Jose Mourinho reacts to Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Manchester United

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has admitted that his side underperformed during their 2-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon.

A Victor Wanyama header in the sixth minute of the game put Tottenham in front before their lead was doubled three minutes into the second half by Harry Kane.

Asked for his abiding memory of the stadium, Pochettino said: "Now it will always be the last day".

The game was followed by a pitch invasion and then a ceremony involving Spurs greats from yesteryear, a rainbow breaking through the clouds with flawless timing as a shower of white tickertape brought the festivities to a close.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said: "It was a flawless performance and I am happy for the victory for our fans".

"I'm proud of all my team-mates and just happy for all the staff and the fans".

"I'd be very surprised if most of us aren't still here next season", he said. It's a great moment to share with everyone, we're so happy to be here to say goodbye to White Hart Lane and to welcome the new stadium.

It also means Manchester United can not finish in the top four and their hopes of Champions League qualification rest entirely on winning the Europa League.

"I'm really sad, disappointed, because Chelsea in the end won the Premier League, but there is nothing to regret", he added.

"For me it was a very exciting day because I think it was ideal".

"Tottenham were a team at the maximum of their potential, with all players, with all the motivation to win the last match at home", he said.

"It's been a progression from (third) last season", Kane said.

"I'm fine with what we had in terms of individual performances, the two goals were bad goals that we conceded, but the team was not used to each other".

Premier League Tottenham paid homage to that first ever fixture on Sunday with the corner flags at White Hart Lane featuring the Notts badge and the date of the fixture.

"It's an unbelievable stadium and we just have to make sure we feel comfortable there".

"We have to keep working harder, keep getting better and hopefully next season we'll finish first".
