Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino described a return to Champions League football at the club's new 62,000 capacity stadium next season as "massively important" after securing a top four finish on Wednesday. "That was the challenge four years ago", he said.

However, Huddersfield held on desperately in the final half hour to secure the vital point that guaranteed survival on their return to the top flight for the first time in 45 years.

So proud about this group of players, to achieve the top four in that condition, despite many things that happened during the season, if you are not strong mentally or physically, and you show (don't) passion (or) care for this situation, it is hard to achieve what we did today'.

"Yes, it'll be a unbelievable stadium but you will need to make the new arena your house, such as [it] was with Wembley". We are not in a club that [has won] a lot in last years. "To create a winning mindset you have to build it step by step, then be competitive with the large sides". To achieve the top four, I think it is a massive, massive achievement.

If Dortmund and Benfica, as expected, confirm their places in next season's Champions League this weekend, then Tottenham will only be ranked 17th of the qualifying teams - making them the top-ranked team in pot 3.

Spurs capitalised on Chelsea's slip-up to ensure they will have Champions League football for a third consecutive campaign when they move into a new 62,000 capacity stadium next season.

"Thirty eight games away for home".

"It will be another challenge, another enormous challenge because it'll be exactly the same as it was to play at Wembley".

"The last game against Watford, in the first half we didn't play well, but, in the second half, we had a great reaction". 'I want to congratulate the players and staff.

"We had 14 attempts against Tottenham at home and two penalties not given". Tottenham were a bit anxious and we had enough chances to score.

"You will need time to let that happen".

Benitez said: "I'm really pleased, because it's not easy when you are safe with five games to go, for a team like us, with a squad like ours when everyone's talking about "oh, they are one of the first candidates to go down".

"Massive congratulations and thank you to all the staff because they have been fantastic and have worked so hard for almost 38 games away from home".
