According to Sky Sports Tottenham have asked the Premier League if we can break from convention and play our first home game of the season at Wembley.

Spurs made the request to the Premier League within the last fortnight, as they race to get our new £850m stadium ready for the 2018-19 campaign.

However it isn’t as bad as it may seem as Sky Sports News also understands we’ve made two submissions, one to play our first four games away from home – and another to play three away from home, with the fourth a home game at Wembley.

The article goes on to say that the request goes against Premier League rules which state that each team must play all their home games in the same stadium over the course of a season and Premier League board members and management ars considering Tottenham’s requests.

The article adds that a decision will be made before the end of the week, although not necessarily in time for the release of the Premier League fixtures on Thursday with the board is understood to be keen to give Tottenham extra time in what appears to be an increasingly tight schedule.

The Premier League has previously arranged initial fixtures for the likes of Liverpool, West Ham and Blackpool

Spurs have reportedly been given until 6pm on Friday to state if they wish to use Wembley next season. The option they had to spend the whole season at Wembley is understood to have expired.
