Much has been made of Tottenham Hotspur adopting Wembley as their temporary home this season. While the home of English football is undoubtedly a masterpiece in terms of design, many claim it fails to enclose the atmosphere and inevitably has the feel of a neutral venue.
It’s hard to ignore the statistics and they do suggest Wembley’s had an impact on Tottenham’s results. While they topped the Premier League’s home table last season, even finishing two points clear of title winners Chelsea, they’re down to sixth this term having dropping nine points at Wembley already.
However, Wembley remains the UK’s top sporting location for 2017 for Instagram users according to BBC Sport, and the fact it beat Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium and Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge suggests Tottenham fans should perhaps embrace their temporary abode a little more.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will feel confident in their chances of improving their record at Wembley when they host newly-promoted Bournemouth there on Wednesday night.
