Tottenham Hotspur fans would have been slightly anxious about Sunday’s Premier League match; not just because of the opponents Chelsea but because of their previous form at Wembley.
The London club will be playing all of their home games at the national stadium this season while their new ground is being built.
The team’s first opponents of the campaign at home were Chelsea, who headed into the match on the back of an opening-day loss to Burnley.
Spurs were unable to rub salt into the wound as they were beaten 2-1 by the defending champions.
The result means that Mauricio Pochettino’s side have managed to win just one of their last six outings at Wembley.
It is not the most encouraging of statistics, and those connected with the club will be hoping to play down suggestions of a Wembley ‘curse’ when they welcome Burnley to the stadium this weekend.
After witnessing Sunday’s defeat to Chelsea, some Tottenham fans gave their assessment on the impact that Wembley has on the team.

Wembley is NOT an issue. Wish it wouldn't be bought up all the time!! Players looked tired but gave everything. Not worried #COYS

Atmosphere at Wembley was fine once all singing. When we work out who's who and who sings will be fine. Loud once we scored #coys

Have to say …. loved the Park Lane/shelf side chant today! Wembley is never going to be home but that made it feel a bit better #COYS

We'll get used to playing at Wembley I'm sure of it. This team's too good not to. #COYS

Really just hoping to get Europa this year. Get out of Wembley, pay the players their fair pay. I know a lot to ask #COYS
