  • Townsend doubtful to start against Spurs

Victory over Crystal Palace on Wednesday kept the club on course for another top-four finish, a point ahead of Chelsea and Arsenal and three clear of United.

Spurs' win over Crystal Palace in their inaugural match at the new stadium meant they went above north London rivals Arsenal in the league standings. "So we are going to keep going until we get both right".

"With all the risk, of course, but I think in football if you want to achieve important things you need to be fearless and we were courageous moving and starting to play this season".

"To see the stadium, watch the stadium and play with the stadium, for me is an wonderful experience".

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.

A video message from chairman Daniel Levy, whose demands for perfection have helped create this magnificent arena, started off proceedings.

"The emotion was awesome from the beginning".


"We have to start to think it's a new chapter and that Tottenham can be a real contender for big things", Pochettino told reporters in the plush auditorium.

"The idea was to move to the new stadium and the second year be in the Champions League". Now we need to touch the glory of lifting trophies.

"It's just wonderful, an unbelievable stadium and unbelievable crowd as well", he told broadcasters after the match.

"The noise was just so loud". It takes only 25 minutes to turnaround the playing surface to National Football League stipulations, a key consideration with White Hart Lane signing a deal to host National Football League games in the United Kingdom over the foreseeable future.

Tottenham's first-half domination was countered by a profligacy which prevented them opening the scoring.

"It feels unbelievable", he said on an emotional night for everyone connected with Spurs.

However, Spurs followed up this record season by signing precisely zero senior players for the 2018/19 campaign.
