Norwich City were beaten 5-0 by Tottenham Hotspur in their final game of the season, goals from Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son securing Champions League football for Antonio Conte's side.

The Canaries started brightly but were pegged back early at Carrow Road, Kulusevski tapping into an open net after Rodrigo Bentancur had broken the offside trap and squared for the Swede.

Kane doubled Spurs' lead 16 minutes later courtesy of a Tim Krul error. Krul, back in the City side after two games on the bench, rolled the ball out to Bentancur 20 yards out. The Tottenham number 30 crossed and Kane had an empty goal to head into.

Kulusevski made it three the other side of the break, curling beyond Krul after a series of chances were missed by the visitors.

Son made it four and then five shortly thereafter, first striding onto Lucas Moura's flick and sliding under Krul before curling beyond the City goalkeeper after a free-kick was headed into his path.

60 - Krul denies Son at point-blank range after Kane's cross found his teammate three-yards-out.

62 - A nice touch from Kulusevski gets him through on goal and he rounds Krul, but can't sort his feet out in time to add a third for Tottenham.

64 - GOAL TOTTENHAM (Kulusevski): Kulusevski is found wide on the right and he cuts in beyond Giannoulis easily before curling into the far post.
