Harry Kane has insisted the new stadium delays have not been a distraction to him and his teammates.

The new Tottenham Hotspur stadium was due to open on 15 September for the Premier League clash against Liverpool but health and safety issues have set back the opening date.

Spurs will now play at Wembley at least until 28 November where Manchester City may become the first side to play at the new Spurs home.

However, Harry Kane told The Sun his side will not be distracted by the delays:

“Everyone just needs to be calm.

“As the gaffer said the other day, the stadium is a huge project – it isn’t going to happen overnight.”

“We wanted it to happen in a year, which would have been amazing but it might be a little longer,” said the 25-year-old.

“When times get tough, you know you’ve got each other’s back and that’s what you need throughout a Premier League season.”

The Spurs striker opened his Premier League account on Saturday in their 3-1 victory over Fulham.

With the prospect of another couple of months playing with Wembley as their home, can spurs replicate their good home form from last season?
