With a strong finish to the season, Tottenham has booked a spot in the Champions League for next season.

There was just one way to win this game when Kulusevski scored in the first half, and then it was a question of how many more goals Spurs would score.

In the end, it was four goals as Kane and Kulusevski sealed the victory before Son’s late brace awarded him a share of the Golden Boot.

Starting lineup:

NORWICH CITY (4-2-3-1): Tim Krul; Max Aarons, Grant Hanley (c), Sam Byram, Dimitris Giannoulis; Mathias Normann, Jacob Sørensen; Kieran Dowell, Pierre Lees-Melou, Milot Rashica; Teemu Pukki.

TOTTENHAM (3-4-3): Hugo Lloris (c); Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Emerson Royal, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Rodrigo Bentancur, Ryan Sessegnon; Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min.

Goals:

0-1 TOTTENHAM! Spurs get the early goal they’ve been looking for! Hojbjerg spots Bentancur’s run down the left and picks him out with an over-the-top pass. The Uruguayan bursts into the box and squares the ball for Kulusevski, who taps it into the net.

0-2 TOTTENHAM! What a poor goal for Norwich to concede. Krul plays a pass out from the back to Bentancur, who crosses it straight away. Kane gobbles ithe cross up, diverting a header into the far bottom corner.

0-3 TOTTENHAM! Kulusevski makes amends straight away by scoring a peach of a goal! Spurs’ right-wing races onto Kane’s through ball, beats Giannoulis to cut inside on his left foot and curls an unstoppable shot into the far top corner. Krul has no chance of keeping it out.

0-4 TOTTENHAM! Son’s got his goal now! Kane fires a pass into the feet of Lucas, whose clever round-the-corner flick frees Son in the centre of the box. All Son has to do is slot calmly past Krul.

0-5 TOTTENHAM! If this is the goal that wins Son the Golden Boot, he thoroughly deserves it! Lucas‘ free kick is cleared as far as Son, who eases away from Pukki on the edge of the box and curls an unbelievable strike past Krul. The South Koreans are swamped by his teammates, understandably so!

So, what’s next?

Tottenham can celebrate their return to the Champions League next season after a few years away then. Can Conte lead them to a title challenge or even a trophy next season? Don’t rule it out.
