Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham Hotspur must "move on" after achieving a top two finish for the first time in the Premier League following their 2-1 victory over Manchester United on Sunday (14 May).

Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane's goals made sure that their side ended the final season at White Hart Lane undefeated. Chelsea won the Premier League after a narrow 1-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Friday.

The north London club were a win away from securing the second place and they achieved the feat by defeating Jose Mourinho's side. Tottenham finished in the top two for the first time in the league since 1963 and also finished above their local rivals Arsenal for the first time in over two decades.

Pochettino, who expressed his disappointment after failing to win the title, admitted that he is delighted with his side's achievement this season.

"It is fantastic to achieve second position. We are disappointed, but at the same time we need to move on," Pochettino told Sky Sports.

"Second position is fantastic for us with 80 points and being unbeaten at White Hart Lane in the last season here.

"There are a lot of things to be happy about today. It's true that in the moment we start to play in the new stadium with new facilities I think the club will move to the last step and to the last level. But at the moment we are so happy."

On losing the title to Chelsea, the former Southampton manager said: "I'm very, very proud. To finish second I think is a fantastic achievement for the club, but it is true we are disappointed when you are close and fighting to win the Premier League. But at the same time we are happy."
