Pochettino reacts to Tottenham's Champions League qualification

Tottenham vs Newcastle: Tottenham Hotspur will play Champions League football for a third consecutive year next season as Harry Kane's victor earned a nervy 1-0 win over Newcastle at Wembley on Wednesday.

Mauricio Pochettino believes Tottenham must win a trophy to take the next step in their development after securing a top-four finish in the Premier League for a third successive year. Of course we are a little concerned about the situation, only the wishes and I hope that it is not a big issue and he can be ready and fit to play the World Cup.

"If you analyse this all in context, I think it's an awesome season - to have the possibility, with two games left, to finish third, I think it's massively successful".

Newcastle United fell to a 1-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Wednesday night, but fans have taken to Twitter to rave about the display of midfielder Mohamed Diame. It will be another challenge, another massive challenge because it will be the same as it was to play at Wembley.

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".

China Trade Surplus With US Continues To Mount Amid Frictions
A Reuters report citing sources said China had offered to buy more U.S. goods and lower tariffs on some goods, including cars. Imports in April also showed robust growth of 22% from past year , up to USD171.7 billion.

Pochettino picked out Moussa Sissoko as one of Tottenham's key players in a match where the France global was called upon to show his defensive qualities as often as his creative ones.

Captain Jamaal Lascelles then forced a decent save out of Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, with his headed effort heading for the corner before the Frenchman's intervention.

'So that's why I feel so proud of the players to achieve this'.

The Magpies have been on a poor run of form recently, having been defeated in their last four games and have only scored once in those matches.

Newcastle have now lost four consecutive games since passing the 40-point mark by beating Arsenal in mid-April but this performance was not one of a team who were already thinking of the end of the season.

Hezbollah's Nasrallah says Lebanon results are "victory" for the resistance
Under the terms of the new law, voters cast two votes, one for a list of candidates and one for a single preferred candidate. The Lebanese Association for Democratic Elections reported over 7,000 polling violations in Sunday's elections.

The Spurs boss also knows that there is a next step for his side moving forward. Fifth-placed Chelsea are on 70 and hence, can not overtake the Lilywhites as they have just one game left in the season.

"Now, after 23 years in the Premier League, this is the first time Tottenham are above the other London clubs".

"It will be a fantastic stadium but you need to make it your home, like with Wembley we will need time for that to happen". We are not in a club that win 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".

"Absolutely, 100% we deserved something", said Benitez.

"Today [Wednesday] we were doing nearly everything well against a good team".
