Tottenham secure Europa League spot with Sheffield United victory

Tottenham Hotspur's Dejan Kulusevski celebrates scoring the opening goal with teammates against Sheffield United

Tottenham will play in the Europa League next season following a fifth-placed finish in the Premier League this season.

Spurs needed just a point in their final game of the season away at already relegated Sheffield United to confirm a fifth-placed finish in the table and they did what was required, picking up a 3-0 win. Chelsea were putting the pressure on with a fine run of results to conclude the season and they continued on the final day.

The Blues won 2-1 against Bournemouth to make it five straight wins to end the campaign, with former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino guiding Chelsea to a sixth-placed finished in the end, which could result in Europa League football, depending on what happens in the FA Cup final next weekend.

For Spurs though, Europa League football is now guaranteed. Dejan Kulusevski scored the only goal in the first half, picking up a loose ball in the Blades area and firing a low effort past Wes Foderingham and in off the far post.

Things got much better in the second half though as Pedro Porro fired in a thunderbolt from range to make it 2-0, before Kulusevski bagged his second of the afternoon to make it 3-0.
