The striker, who grew up supporting Tottenham, scored the north London club's final goal in White Hart Lane's 118-year history.
Last season's near-miss and their small step forward suggests that the experience and knowledge is already growing, with Spurs close to being ready to climb to the top.
"To be honest it's another game against Tottenham".
"We believe that when the doors open at the new stadium it will help the club to reach the last level", said Pochettino. Liverpool's Divock Origi, right, celebrates scoring against West Ham United during the English Premier League soccer match at London Stadium, Sunday May 14, 2017.
Sunday's results meant there's only Champions League qualification at stake entering the final week of the season.
Speaking after his side's emotional farewell to White Hart Lane, where they signed off in style with a 2-1 win over Manchester United, Kane said: "We're a family on and off the pitch". Hull joined Sunderland and Middlesbrough in dropping into the second tier after losing 4-0 at Crystal Palace. Tottenham Hotspur are playing their last ever home match at White Hart Lane after their 112 year stay at the stadium.
Spurs only confirmed their switch to Wembley at the end of last month and the club have been keen to emphasise they are only taking on a new stadium, rather than moving to a different location.
This was the ideal send-off.
Eriksen was also involved when Spurs doubled their lead three minutes into the second half, this time whipping a free-kick into the six-yard area at just the height and speed that goalkeepers dread.
Sixth-place United, who replied through Wayne Rooney, fell to a second successive league defeat, having seen a 25-game unbeaten run ended by a 2-0 loss down the road at Arsenal last weekend.
The former Irish global was one of the 48 brought out and one of those who stood looking around the stadium with a smile on their face, as a presentation played showing its greatest moments and goals, all to the tunes of the era. By the time they are playing in the new home, they'll hope to have delivered Tottenham's first league title since 1961.
But with Kane, and everyone at the club, seeing the improvements they have made under manager Mauricio Pochettino, he says there shouldn't be many departures as "there are not many better teams to be at around the world at the moment".
"To finish strong and finish unbeaten here is something special".
"After that we controlled the game and took our chances. We are determined that it will be a worthy successor to White Hart Lane and a fitting stage for our current and future great teams".
