Jeffrey Schlupp 8; Serge Aurier 8, Harry Kane 7: Crystal Palace v Tottenham player ratings

Spurs secure place in next season's Europa League after 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park

Jose Mourinho celebrated like his side had won the league after Tottenham Hotspur secured the point that qualified them for the Europa League.

Spurs had appeared to be cruising once Harry Kane had given them a first half lead, but they had to settled for a 1-1 draw after Jeffrey Schlupp scored soon after the interval.

The draw was enough for Spurs to take sixth place in the Premier League, ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers on goal difference.

Mourinho said: "The season was crazy; since they played the Champions League final it has been up and down and really hard.

"We, in this group of matches, managed to get results and to perform. Not today, it was not the best. But in this period we played well, got results and were solid to put ourselves in the position to get in the Europa League.

"From a personal point of view, I'm happy because [with the results we've had] since I arrived, we would be fourth which is good with all the problems we had."
