Victor Wanyama had the home side ahead inside the opening 10 minutes of the contest and Harry Kane's goal just after half-time put the result beyond doubt, despite a consolation tap-in for Wayne Rooney.
"We've got a very bright future, a great squad, a team that's hungry to win and to learn and to get better".
Harry Kane said he was thrilled to score what proved to be the last winning goal at White Hart Lane. To see it go in was special. "It's disappointing to lose out on the title again, but we are getting better", he said. "Because all together we worked so hard together to achieve all that we have achieved this season".
Tottenham have remained the only side yet to lose at home this season. Nobody can play two big competitions with 15 players and this is what we have at the time. "It will be special for our fans, staff, players, people who love Tottenham", Pochettino said.
Tottenham's win means they have gone unbeaten at home for the first time in a league season since 1964-65.
Liverpool join the race for Tiemoué Bakayoko
The French outlet say Chelsea have been given good signs from their talks and are preparing a £38.7million bid to lure Bakayoko to Stamford Bridge.
"Because if I have Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Tim Fosu-Mensah, if I had these guys I can rotate, I can go for every match".
"I don't want to think about next season - I want to think about the final we have to play in".
The game was followed by a pitch invasion and then a ceremony involving Spurs greats from yesteryear, a rainbow breaking through the clouds with ideal timing as a shower of white tickertape brought the festivities to a close. Of course there's going to be rumours over the summer, but I'd be very surprised if most of us aren't still here next season.
With Chelsea having wrapped up the Premier League title by winning at West Bromwich Albion on Friday, Spurs' farewell to their home of 118 years will now be the central focus of Sunday's game.
Pochettino believes that finishing second and the new stadium coming will give them the platform to push on even further. he said: "We believe that when the new stadium opens it's doors it will help the cub to achieve the last level". Since 1899, this stadium was functional, but it will be replaced by a new 61,000-seater ground rising around it.
