The event would be the first time the fans would be allowed to enter the stadium and Tottenham have another test event on 1st September, which would see a Spurs legends side take on a Bayern Munich legends side.
There is one minor issue with the U23 match on 27th August as the senior side will face Manchester United in the Premier League. However, the club were quick to highlight that they did not have a lot of dates to hold the test event as some work is still being done in the stadium.
This will be a real test of how much work and preparation has gone into the stadium and the pressure will be on the stadium staff as well, as they would have to deal with an increasing number of fans across the two events.
The first Premier League game which will be held at our new home would feature Liverpool and that is another exciting fixture given how we pummelled the Reds in the corresponding fixture last season.
Tottenham have a lot riding on the new stadium which features numerous experiences for the fans and if things click, we will have one of the best stadiums in the country.
Tottenham face competition from PSG for this 24-year-old Premier League defender
The Ivorian hasn’t seen much playing time for United this season with only four starts to his name. His last game for the club was the 3-2 win over Newcastle United which came over a month ago.
The defender could be a quality addition to the side but Mauricio Pochettino has to work with Bailly to get the best out of him.
It has been a sapping time for the 24-year-old at United and the report adds that Spurs were tipped to sign the player having not signed anyone in the summer window.
The report adds that the United chiefs are set to meet to discuss the Ivorian’s situation. It will be interesting to see if United are willing to let go of the player, especially to a Premier League rival.
Tottenham are five points behind Manchester City after 12 games and face Chelsea one we return to Premier League action in a week’s time.
Pochettino has done a great job with the same set of players from last season, but we need to add some fresh faces to develop the team.
Mauricio Pochettino pictured at Barcelona watching youth game during break
Our next game is against Chelsea after the break is over, but it seems Pochettino wanted to keep an eye out for future talents from the Catalan side.

A report from Sky Sports adds that the gaffer and his coaching staff, Toni Jimenez and Jesus Perez, would be travelling to Barcelona for a conference to represent the Catalan Football Federation.
The Argentine was quoted (h/t Sky Sports) saying:
“The Catalan Federation asked us to go there and talk with the Catalan coaches, and I think it is a great opportunity to share, and explain how the Premier League is and Tottenham.”
Spanish reports (h/t Sky Sports) claim Pochettino could have been at the game to scout some Barcelona players.
Sky Sports adds that Spurs were interested in Barca B star Riqui Puig, who did play in the match Pochettino saw.
The manager knows the Spanish league well from his time at Espanyol, and given the history between Barcelona and his former employers, it will be interesting to see if we do snap someone up from the Catalan giants.
Spurs didn’t sign any players in the summer window and our winter activity could decide if we go on to win a trophy or not this season.
“It is definitely possible” – Harry Kane believes he can break this record for England
The former Manchester United striker played his last England game in our 3-0 win over the United States. Rooney ended his international career with 53 goals from 120 games.
Kane, for his part, has 19 goals for the Three Lions and was asked if he could break Rooney’s scoring record (h/t BT Sport).
“It is definitely possible.
“It is still a fair bit away, I don’t like to set my targets that far ahead in the future because a lot can happen.
“We will see over the years how many goals I have got. Hopefully I will still be fit and healthy and getting selected by the manager.
“It is achievable but not something I’m thinking about too much right now.”
The clash against Croatia would be a repeat of the World Cup semi which England lost. A win over the Croatians would send England into the semi-finals of the UEFA Nations League but the away side will come with a lot of confidence.
Croatia defeated Spain in their last game, and Gareth Southgate has to be wary of the threat from the away side.
Kane will be one of the key players in this clash, and hopefully, he will score a few goals at Wembley.
