Daniel Levy and Tottenham Hotspur pulled off a real coup when we agreed a temporary move to Wembley Stadium for this season.
Whilst our performances at the national stadium in Europe last season were a big disappointment, in both the Champions League and then our elimination at home by Gent in the Europa League, it is a season to savour.
Wembley Stadium has historically been a ground that football fans all want to see their team play at and for the 2017-18 season Tottenham have granted the wish of many fans from 19 Premier League clubs up and down the country.
Additional clubs will get to visit Wembley this season in the Champions League, FA Cup and EFL Cup.
Despite failing to win any of our home Premier League games to start the season; a disappointing defeat to Chelsea, then held by both Burnley and Swansea City, our 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund has to be a morale booster for the players.
One disappointment for the club was the failure to bring in any major names this summer. The fact that we’re playing at Wembley and in the Champions League should have allowed Mauricio Pochettino to attract some big names.
Luring Fernando Llorente away from Swansea City and to choose us over Chelsea shows what we’re capable of. Serge Aurier also joined from Paris Saint-Germain, whilst Davinson Sánchez would have chosen us over Ajax regardless of what stadium was our home this season.
This weekend sees a battle between the two clubs that play at England’s finest stadiums – we travel to West Ham’s London Stadium, a place where we were one of only seven teams to lose last season.
We’re 1.65 to win at the Hammers with Betfair football odds, making us heavy favourites to maintain our perfect away record to start the new season.
Betfair have also produced the graphic below which compares Wembley and the London Stadium. Regardless of what they think, Wembley Stadium is the one stadium in the hearts of every English football fan.
