After a frustrating exit from Europa League at the hands of KAA Gent, Tottenham will be determined to put the defeat behind and move on. There will be no point in being down about the Europa League exit and Pochettino will certainly know it. They will be preparing hard for the upcoming league fixture against Stoke, and will have only the Premier League and the FA cup to focus from now on. It will come as a bonus as the team will have enough time and resources to compete in the remaining two competitions.

Team News:

Danny Rose (knee) and Erik Lamela (hip) are the only two players who are not available for Spurs, as the injury concerns seem to have eased for the club.

Predicted line-up:

With only two competitions left to focus on, Pochettino might not take chances against a team like Stoke City and will look to field a strong team.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Hugo Lloris (GK):

Lloris is virtually irremovable from the Tottenham line-up and the Tottenham captain is very important for the club on and off the pitch. He is the first name on the team sheet.

Kyle Walker (RB):

Kyle Walker was the major threat for Tottenham as they went down fighting against KAA Gent. He will surely be included in the team given the kind of form he has been in.

Toby Alderweireld (CB):

Alderweireld has been consistent with his performances this season and he might hold on to his place in the side.

Jan Vertonghen (CB):

The Belgian is back from injury and was involved against Gent. He would start the game as well for Tottenham.

Ben Davies (LB):

Though Davies has struggled in recent games, he is expected to start against Stoke, given that Danny Rose is still injured. He has to work hard and repay his manager’s faith in him.

Victor Wanyama (CM):

Wanyama has been a good signing for Tottenham and he fought his heart out in the Europa League outing. He has shown shades of what is set to arrive in the future, and has forged a good partnership with Moussa Dembele. Will start and should start.

Moussa Dembele (CM):

Dembele has been brilliant for Spurs and is a vital cog in the midfield. He might start against Stoke as well.

Christian Eriksen (RW):

Christian Eriksen it the playmaker for Spurs and benching him against Stoke would be suicide. He will start for sure.

Son Heung-min (LW):

Son Heung-min might get a start as well as it can be expected that the Tottenham boss might go for a 4-2-3-1 formation which has clicked for him on most occasions.

Dele Alli (CAM):

Dele Alli has been magical for Spurs this season and has been a real contributor for his team. He is vital in their build-up play. Despite the red card he received in his previous game, and criticism he faced, Pochettino backed the youngster and might let him start against Stoke to rebuild the youngster’s confidence.

Harry Kane (ST):

Kane was dangerous throughout the game against Gent and almost looked like scoring. He cannot be dropped from the side no matter what. He is a sure starter.

Here’s how they may line-up:

“It feels like our second home” – Tottenham star unsure about staying at Wembley for the rest of the season

Christian Eriksen Tottenham

Christian Eriksen has claimed that Wembley is like a second home for Tottenham, and isn’t sure if we will stay at the stadium for the rest of the season.

Tottenham’s new ground won’t be ready this year and Daniel Levy confirmed we would be sticking to Wembley till 2019.

The club also moved to strike a deal to keep playing at Wembley till our home is completed, and Eriksen was quoted by the Sun saying:

“I don’t know if we are going to stay at Wembley for the rest of the season.

“We are happy at Wembley for more than a year now and it feels like our second home.”

The Dane added that the players couldn’t wait to play at the new ground but wanted the stadium to be perfect before the team move in.

The former Ajax star added that the professionals would be working hard to get the stadium done and the players have to concentrate on their job too.

Tottenham are fourth in the Premier League and are five points behind Manchester City, who lead the table.

Our next game is going to be a real battle as we face undefeated Chelsea. The Blues are just a point ahead of us in the Premier League, and a win will put us back in the race for the title.

Tottenham’s new stadium is inching closer to completion and we are receiving clips and pictures from various sources.

We saw Lord Alan Sugar tweet about the ground being one of the best in the world recently, and another Twitter user, AdamJ_COYS shared a number of clips of the stadium’s interior.

One of the most striking videos saw the Spurs fan capture the NFL home team and Tottenham dressing rooms.

The NFL changing rooms even have the league’s logo emblazoned on a number of areas, and we caught a glimpse of some other workers taking a snap too.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Tottenham stadium video unless we saw what the pitch looked like and the user even captured some of the seating areas which look close to completion.

The Spurs shop is one of the biggest attractions in the new ground and a video of the same was posted as well.

Tottenham’s stadium is set to be one of the best in the world but we will have to wait a little longer before any of the matches are played in the ground.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham will play their remaining home games of 2018 in Wembley but consturction of our new stadium seems to be chugging along. A new video showcases the exterior of the stadium, and it does seem close to completion.

There is some work to be done in the outer section of the ground, but the roof panels seem to be installed in all the right places.

The stadium was expected to be ready by September to host Liverpool, however, the club have faced delays and Daniel Levy recently claimed that we would be staying at Wembley till the end of the year.

Further, the club have negotiated a deal to play at Wembley till the new stadium is ready, and the club is expected to provide an update on the new ground in December.

The new home looks amazing, and it will be interesting to see which club we do face once the ground is ready.

White Hart Lane was a brilliant ground to play in, especially due to the vociferous backing of the Spurs faithful.
