Tottenham Hotspur’s long wait will finally be over tomorrow night as they take to their new stadium pitch for the first time in the Premier League. And what better way to do it than a night under the lights.

Spurs fans have been waiting two and a half years for the stadium to be build, and six months since they were originally told it would be ready.

However, now that the wait is over, it is all about celebrating the architectural feat the club has achieved with this wonderful new ground.

Some fans maybe hoping that the quality of the training ground, the new stadium, and the increased atmosphere will be enough to both will their stars onto a Champions League spot and convince some players to stay at the club.

The likes of Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld have both been linked with an exit this summer, and Pochettino was asked today whether the stadium could help keep them.

He said (Football London): “We don’t talk about that, we didn’t have time t talk about how it is going to affect our decision or emotion in the future. To be honest, it was difficult to talk. To play tomorrow and play different games here maybe I can have better feelings from them if we talk some time, that this type of stadium can change the minds of some players, or the facilities we have in training ground, or to be in the Champions League or not Champions League. We haven’t spoken about that, we are so focused to change the dynamic. We need to change the dynamic and feel the victory again that is most important. There will be time to talk.”
