Tottenham beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in the first Premier League game held at their new stadium last Wednesday.

The 62,062 capacity stadium has experienced considerable delays which have left Tottenham fans frustrated over the last few months but there is no doubt that it was worth the wait.

The fans who attended the game were left in awe of the facility with many including boss Mauricio Pochettino claiming that it is the best stadium in the world.

Former Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas who was covering the game against Palace as part of his media duties has talked about what sets the stadium apart from the rest.

Speaking to BBC 5 Live Sport, the 36-year-old said that the closeness of the stands to the pitch really took him by surprise.

He also talked about how the stadium was built keeping in mind the fans’ experience, which makes it unique among other modern venues.
