Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte praised his side’s campaign after ensuring Champions League qualification in the final match of the season.
A recent upturn in form saw Spurs pip north London rivals Arsenal into fourth spot in the Premier League with a 5-0 victory away at Norwich City to cap off a remarkable turnaround since Conte’s arrival.
Spurs were underdogs for the fourth spot but finished the season ahead of rivals Arsenal and Manchester United to return to Europe’s premier competition after a two-year absence.
Conte’s message on Instagram read: “It’s been a season full of bumps on the road, but we all made it through together, as a team.
“Today’s match has been the right ending to a year of hard work, dedication, attention and education. We trained together, we suffered together and we celebrated every single win together.
“Come On You Spurs #COYS.”

Conte will be determined to improve his record in the Champions League where he has only reached the quarter-finals on one occasion.
In 2012-13, his Juve side were eliminated by eventual winners Bayern Munich while Chelsea lost out to Barcelona in 2017-18.
