Christian Eriksen has revealed that the Tottenham Hotspur players are unsure on whether they will get the opportunity to play at the new stadium this season.
The club have already confirmed that the remainder of matches in 2018 will be hosted at Wembley and have already reached an agreement with Wembley that would allow them to hold their remaining home matches until the end of the current season at the national stadium.
The Wembley capacity for Spurs matches has been fixed at 51,000 following the upcoming Premier League game against Chelsea a week on Saturday, although an application has been submitted to Brent Council to increase that to 62,000 – and potentially 90,000 for certain matches, if further fixtures are played there from late January.  
Spurs have already missed their scheduled grand opening in September against Liverpool due to issues with critical safety systems at their new home.
Eriksen is insisted that the players are comfortably at Wembley having played there since the start of last season.
The Dane told The Sun: “I don’t know if we are going to stay at Wembley for the rest of the season.

“We are happy at Wembley for more than a year now and it feels like our second home.

“Of course our players and our fans can’t wait for us to get to the new stadium and get started.

“But these things take time and we all want to make sure it is done perfectly.

“It will be an amazing and incredible place, so we need it to be finished properly.

“Everyone wants to be in the new stadium but we can’t help with the building or put up bricks.

“So we need to leave it to professionals and let them get on with their job.

“We need to do ours and concentrate on football. I can’t see it impacting our season.”
