Spurs Marked Their First Competitive Game At Their New Stadium On Wednesday With A 2-0 Win Over Crystal Palace


Spurs marked their first competitive game at their new stadium on Wednesday with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace to boost their prospects of finishing in the Premier League’s top four.

However, the Mauricio Pochettino’s side have a further four league fixtures at home as they battle with Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United for Champions League qualification.

In this regard Eden Hazard has commented on their new stadium - "I think Tottenham, for two or three years, have been one of the best teams in England. That is for sure," Hazard said at Stamford Bridge after beating Brighton.

"We are Chelsea, and it is a big derby. I don’t like that to be fair, but we have to accept it. For the Premier League it is good – a new stadium, they have top players.

"But, at the end, at Chelsea, we won a lot of trophies, they have not, so I hope this continues. I think that I like that because people are not talking about Chelsea for the top four. We are quiet, fifth, sixth and then we can be ready for the game."
