Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has picked his side which will play the first Premier League game at the new 62,062 capacity seater stadium against Crystal Palace this evening.
Nothing less than three points will do for Spurs this evening, not just to kick off life at the new ground in style but to keep them in the hunt for a Champions League place.
Manchester United’s defeat at Wolves last night will give Spurs the opportunity to put a three-point gap between themselves and Solskjaer’s side.
After a run of seven consecutive wins in Premier League London derby matches, Spurs have won just one of their last four such matches (D1 L2).
Harry Kane has scored 59 home goals for Tottenham in the Premier League – only Jermain Defoe (60) scored more in home games for the club.
This is who starts.
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Rose, Sissoko, Eriksen, Dele, Son, Kane.
Subs: Gazzaniga, Sanchez, Foyth, Walker-Peters, Wanyama, Winks, Lucas
Crystal Palace: Guita, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Schlupp, Kelly, Wan-Bissaka, Milivojevic, Kouyate, McArthur, Zaha, Batshuayi.
Subs: Benteke, Hennessey, Ward, Ayew, Meyer, Dann, Townsend
