Tottenham played out a 2-2 draw against Everton yesterday at the new stadium in what was the club’s final Premier League game of the season. The effort meant that Spurs had sealed the fourth spot in the Premier League and as a result, secured Champions League qualification for the fourth consecutive season.
Eric Dier, who started at the heart of defence due to the injuries to Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez, along with the suspension of Juan Foyth, scored the opener early in the game after he pounced on a loose ball inside the box from a corner, to slam it home.
Spurs had opportunities to extend their lead but were wasteful in the final third as they went into the half-time interval a goal to the good.
Everton came out in the second half and played with intensity to score two quickfire goals through Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun, only for Christian Eriksen to equalise through a free kick soon after.
After the game, the end of the season awards were handed out with Son Heung-Min taking home both the Player of the Season as well as the Goal of the Season award for his effort against Chelsea.
The players then went on a lap of honour around the stadium, thanking the fans for their support this season.
Some Spurs have now taken to social media to send a message to the fans:
Another brilliant season and great to know there will be guaranteed Champions League football again next year in this great stadium. Having these two with me on the pitch to thank you all for your support was special. The season isn't not over yet!! Let’s finish on a high! #COYS pic.twitter.com/ayAyktRVpB

Spurs Web Opinion
We believe Tottenham have had a brilliant season given the circumstances and that Pochettino and his players still don’t get the credit they deserve.
To seal Champions League qualification for the fourth season in a row, while simultaneously playing high-pressure European games, despite not adding a single player to the squad and the problems due to the stadium delay, is no mean feat.
