Following Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town, the Reds know they can secure a top-four finish by taking a point from Sunday's meeting with Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield.
Newcastle created a series of a first-half chances at Wembley, but they couldn't take advantage and Kane claimed all three points for Mauricio Pochettino's side.
Yet, it's baffling that Conte chose to not play his best team in an important game like this. The club did just that to start this season's European campaign, and remarkably, Liverpool have made it all the way to the final.
Laurent Depoitre, who scored the vital goal against Chelsea to earn a point, was pictured in a rickshaw as well as Alex Pritchard snapped sat on a motorbike. We want more. We're ambitious.
"We had a lot of chances against Spurs - probably more clearcut chances than they had - but we didn't put them away".
Huddersfield are safe, however, as their point at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday guaranteed their survival.
"I was shocked that we had the lead! We have shown everybody that we are humble but we are ambitious".
They will need to not only win at St James' Park but hope that fourth-placed Liverpool, who have a superior goal difference of 15, lose at home to Brighton if they are to avoid dropping into the Europa League next season.
The home side equalised through Marcos Alonso and hit the woodwork twice as they tried to find a way through the massed Huddersfield defence.
Toure was an inspirational figure in City's first two title wins of a free-spending era under Sheikh Mansour's ownership. Pep Guardiola's team also now have 31 wins, surpassing the previous record of 30 set by Chelsea during last season.
"Thank you for being such a wonderful team-mate", City captain Vincent Kompany told Toure.
The midfielder has been Sean Dyche's running man this season with Cork playing all 3,330 minutes of the club's 37 league games so far this term.
Strikes from Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho sealed victory after Leonardo Ulloa had cancelled out Danilo's opener.
Iheanacho fired the Foxes ahead with a sharp left-footed shot from the centre of the penalty area in the 14th minute and Arsenal defender Konstantinos Mavropanos was sent off straight after the restart for hauling down the forward.
Conte was asked about the challenges of recruiting and retaining talent for a club outside of the Champions League.
