New Tottenham Hotspur Stadium officially opens

Tottenham will be desperate to secure three points following four defeats in their last five Premier League games to lose their grip on third place.

Paul Merson is tipping Tottenham Hotspur to make a winning start to life at their new stadium when Spurs host Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

"But they've got to keep improving the team".

With income rising sharply as a result of player sales, hosting home matches at Wembley and a Champions League run, Tottenham's profit surpassed the £106 million reported by Liverpool earlier this year.

"To see the stadium, watch the stadium and play with the stadium, for me is an incredible experience". You don't know how we're going to react but, playing the way we played in the first half, we were going to score. Now is the start of a chapter. It was special like the last day at White Hart Lane.


Spurs are perhaps only one or two marquee signings away from getting their first piece of silverware under Pochettino and the manager certainly deserves it. "Now we need to touch the glory of lifting trophies", he said.

Pochettino's task now is to try to deliver new glory.

"It's just awesome, an unbelievable stadium and unbelievable crowd as well", he told broadcasters after the match. With the training ground and stadium they are big. "The noise was just so loud", Son, whose 12th league goal of the season came in front of the stadium's steepling 17,500-seat single tier South Stand, told Sky Sports.

Twenty-two months after they said goodbye to White Hart Lane, Spurs finally open the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and held the flawless housewarming party, with a nod to the farewell observance they paid to their former ground. To play in it is an wonderful feeling.

"I thought that if we had just kept that a little bit longer to 0-0 or the 1-0 to just 10 or 15 minutes later, then maybe the last 15 or 20 minutes they would have had a little bit more concern for some of our attacking moves".
