The North London Derby on Sunday was the first game that saw Spurs fans return to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium since March and players certainly put on a show for the 2000 lucky supporters in attendance as they turned over Arsenal 2-0.

After the game, Jose Mourinho praised the Spurs fans for making a lot of noise and supporting the team throughout the game.

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed on his Youtube channel that the stadium was louder than one would have expected with 2000 fans due to the acoustics of the venue.

He claimed that, since the majority of the fans were seated on the South Stand, which is designed to be a ‘wall of noise’ the Spurs fans certainly made themselves heard.

Gold claimed that the noise reverberated around the venue like it would in a whispering gallery, revealing that there was a massive roar around the 62,303-capacity venue when Son Heung-min opened the scoring with a wondergoal.

The journalist also said that the fans in attendance broke into plenty of chants, including chanting Gareth Bale’s name when the Welshman was warming up by the touchline.
