According to reports, Tottenham Hotspur will use a bar as their changing room for the FA Cup third-round clash against Marine this weekend in order to allow enough space for their squad to follow social distancing protocols.

Spurs will travel to Marine’s home ground, Rossett Park, for the match and although the game will be played behind closed doors, Marine boss Neil Young has already warned Mourinho’s men that fans will be watching from overlooking houses and trees (Standard).

Jonathan Veal reported that Young confirmed the Tottenham stars will be using a nearby bar as their changing room.

BBC Sport reveal that the facilities in the Arriva Suite are normally used to host wedding receptions and birthday parties. The function room, which seats up to 150, reportedly costs £220 for an all-day wedding.

It has reportedly been transformed into a dressing room for Tottenham’s visit since the visitors are expected to travel with a large contingent.
