It took just 91 seconds for Spurs to kill to hopeful Elland Road atmosphere, as he was found completely open in the penalty area to tuck away the killer goal to send Leeds United down.

But there were 88 minutes left to play, and in the span, The Whites struggled to trouble Fraser Forster between the Spurs sticks. Robin Koch had a huge chance go begging, having nodded Rodrigo’s fantastic cross from deep just wide of the post.

It took another 90 seconds after the restart, as Kane cruised toward goal before slipping Pedro Porro in on the right channel, whose finish all but confirmed relegation for the home side before any result elsewhere even needed to be considered.

A consolation for the loyal supporters in the stands was scored by Jack Harrison, who picked up on Rutter’s square pass across the edge of the box before whipping the ball across the keeper and into the far corner.

But it was instantly cancelled out by Harry Kane, who broke through on the counter, opened his body up and calmly dispatched the ball into the bottom right corner.

To cap off a performance that lacked quality, desire and effort, Lucas Moura ran through four white jerseys like they were thin air before prodding the ball past Robles for his first goal of the season.

A new club necessary next season.
