Tottenham Hotspur have enjoyed a fantastic few years in the Premier League but fans will certainly have been left wondering what might have been, having come close to pipping both Leicester City and Chelsea to the title.
The Lilywhites have not won the league since 1961 and need a major boost in fortune if that is to change this season, especially as Mauricio Pochettino’s side are having to cope with the challenge of playing their home games at Wembley.
Spurs don’t have a strong record at England’s national stadium and have seen their struggles continue this campaign, as the Lilywhites have lost to Chelsea and drawn to Burnley at Wembley. Fortunately, former striker Gary Lineker believes he has the solution.
Commenting on Twitter after being made aware of Spurs’ solid away record, the Match of the Day host advised Spurs to treat Wembley as an away ground- adding that Spurs would walk the league if they were to use this approach.
Start treating Wembley as an away ground and Spurs will walk the league. Stat 👇 https://t.co/pJZjmNSS3V

It IS an away ground. It's the national stadium

Impressive stat. But difficult to approach like away game when opposition turn up with defensive mind set.

We left The Lane a season too early

Can we just play all of our games away from home? i.e. not to play at Wembley.
