Erik Lamela scored Tottenham’s goal and England striker Harry Kane had the consolation of winning the Premier League’s Golden Boot award after finding the net 25 times this season.
But Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was furious with his team’s lacklustre end to the season.
“I want to apologise to our fans and to our families. It’s difficult to go back to see your kids, your wife, your girlfriend after that,” he said.
“We were terrible. This wasn’t the team that played the whole season, and it was my worst day as a manager.
“I feel so bad, because we showed we didn’t care, and that upsets and disappoints me.
“It was strange, we’ve finished third and Newcastle have been relegated, but Rafa was the one who said he felt sorry for me afterwards.”
