Tottenham Hotspur’s away form this season has been impressive to say the least which has been a key factor in the club currently occupying third position in the Premier League.

Spurs top the top flight table based on away form to date having won eleven and lost four of their fifteen matches on the road, amassing 33 points.

In contrast, their form at Wembley has been less than ideal having won nine, drawn one and lost four of their fixtures which places them below Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.

Mauricio Pochettino was asked for his view on his side’s away form and admitted that he was proud and even claimed that playing away from home at Wembley for an eighteen month period may have helped his players to build their mentality.

Supporters will be hoping that the club have played their last ‘home’ fixture at Wembley and are eagerly awaiting a further update on the situation with the new 62,062 seater stadium.

The Spurs boss told Football.London: “It showed the character of the team and the way we approach the games and the improvement in the last few years. I feel so proud, the mentality is amazing.

“The Wembley situation helped a lot. When we were in the Champions League and Europa League at Wembley 18 months ago, we started to build our mentality and it made us stronger than before. We adapted ourselves in a stadium like Wembley was difficult but it’s amazing how we stepped up in that area. It was so tough. Wembley helped us build that mentality and that’s important. Maybe it’s one way you can improve when you feel that all is against you and that was tough.”
