We are expected to break the 10-year-old Premier League attendance record when Bournemouth visit Wembley this weekend

According to an article in The Daily Mail, ticket sales are fast closing in on the current record of 76,098, set in a game between Manchester United and Blackburn Rovers at Old Trafford in March 2007.

The 90,000 capacity stadium has 158 areas and only five of them still have limited availability of tickets for the clash against the struggling Cherries.

The article says Spurs will likely fall short of the club record attendance of 85,512, set of course by Tottenham at Wembley against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League last season.

But it is expected to be the highest attended home game surpassing the total of 73,587 that watched the 2-1 league defeat by Chelsea in August.

They continue by saying the club are advising supporters to arrive early for the 3pm kick-off.

The article concludes by saying It remains to be seen if the extra crowd can influence a change in Wembley form, with us yet to win in the league at our temporary home following draws with Swansea and Burnley and the defeat by Chelsea.

With all due respect to Eddie Howe’s side,Bournemouth ought to be a more straightforward proposition. They are stuck in the bottom two after taking only four points from a possible 21 so far. Let’s hope the lads can do it. Do you think we will? Let us know your thoughts
