Today marks the day that the brand new 62,000 seat stadium should have made its grand opening against Liverpool, alas, the fixture is set to be played at Wembley, Tottenham’s home of last season.

Delays to the stadium have meant that Tottenham have extended their stay at the national stadium until December 15.

Some rumours circulating are now claiming that faults in the fire sprinkler systems could keep the stadium closed until as late as March 2019.

Liverpool have started the season with a perfect four wins from four, with Tottenham sitting three points behind after their shock defeat to Watford last time out.

Spurs will also be without first team stars Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris, as injury keeps them away from the squad.

Heung-Min Son and Erik Lamela both return from periods away from the team.

Both Spurs and Liverpool are tipped to rival Manchester City for the title this season, and Christian Eriksen knows it will be a big game.

“We know Liverpool is a big game against a team who have been one of the best this season,” said Eriksen.

“We’ve had the same team for the last three seasons and we’ve been up there, so we should be up there again. That’s our aim.

“They can buy as many players as they want, but we have the same squad and we’re going to go for it.

“It will be an intense game but those are fun to play in.”

Tottenham will be hoping for a repeat of last season, when they smashed Liverpool 4-1 at Wembley.
