Despite the loss to Manchester City on Monday night, Tottenham are still enjoying their best ever start to a Premier League season.

The Lilywhites have collected an impressive 21 points from a possible 30 so far this campaign.

It shows what a ridiculous standard the top clubs are setting at the moment that this record is only good enough for fifth place at the moment.

Spurs will continue to play their home games at Wembley until the new year now, as their stadium will not be ready until at least January 2019.

Tottenham have now been playing at the national ground for well over a year and have made it a home away from home, but it can still never quite match the atmosphere of White Hart Lane.

One player who is looking forward to a return to North London is Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld, who has under a year left on his contract.

Alderweireld talked to Sky Sports about criticism, Wembley, and the new ground.

He said: “It’s even more positive that they don’t see it as a good start. That’s the kind of level we have reached. We are never satisfied, we always try to improve.

“We never used Wembley as an excuse and we will not do that now. But it has affected us. I’m grateful to play at Wembley, it is a very historical place, but it is not the same feeling as White Hart Lane.”
