Under construction

The Premier League clash on 15 September was supposed to be when Spurs opened the doors to their new home, but it has been delayed indefinitely

It was the game in which Tottenham were supposed to open the doors to their shiny new stadium, but instead they will host Liverpool at Wembley.

Construction delays and problems with the “critical safety systems” forced the switch, with Premier League games against Cardiff on 6 October, Manchester City on 29 October as well as all the Champions League games being moved to the national stadium.

“Delays are common, certainly for builds of this size and complexity, however we are hugely frustrated that this has occurred at such a late stage. Whilst we would have been able to mitigate other areas, we simply cannot compromise safety. This decision was unavoidable,” a club statement said back in August.

Right now the match against Chelsea on 24 November is slated to be the game to start life at the new White Hart Lane.

Ahead of what should have been the opening, though, talkSPORT.com looks at what the ground currently looks like, courtesy of the official website.
