Tottenham are in a terrible run of form at the moment, having taken just a point from the last 15 in offer in the Premier League.

The new stadium move which is just around the corner will thus come as a welcome distraction.

With the test events done and dusted, Tottenham welcome Crystal Palace to the 62,062-capacity stadium on Wednesday night.

The stadium has received a lot of negative press owing to the repeated delays over the last six months but there is no doubting that Daniel Levy has delivered a world-class facility.

The atmosphere on Wednesday night is expected to be a cracker and Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has said that it would be a privilege to be the first visitors to the magnificent venue.

Writing in his matchday programme notes ahead of the Eagles’ 2-0 win against Huddersfield Town on Saturday, the 52-year-old said he can’t wait to see the stadium first hand.

According to Football.London, he wrote, “It will be a privilege for the club, players, staff and supporters to be involved in the first game at Tottenham Hotspur’s magnificent new stadium.

“It looks absolutely sensational and I can’t wait to see it for myself on Wednesday.

“We will of course be doing our best to slightly spoil the day if we can and come back with some points.”
