Tottenham to play in front of 76000-plus versus Bournemouth at Wembley


Tottenham have some wonderful players, such as Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Hugo Lloris, and the fans will certainly expect the team to challenge for the league title this season. Kasey Keller says talk of a Wembley Stadium curse will subside once Tottenham string together two or three wins in a row.

The previous record is 76,098, set by Manchester United at Old Trafford in 2007, but with Spurs playing at Wembley Stadium, which seats a maximum of 90,000, ticket sales are robust enough that they expect to set a new record against the Cherries.

But it is expected to pass the high mark of this campaign, in which 73,587 watched the 2-1 league defeat by Chelsea in August.

Kane, meanwhile, has scored all six of his Premier League goals on the road this term, although the England striker scored twice in a 3-1 win against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League at Wembley.

Tottenham have proven that they can fill Wembley Stadium if motivated - past year 85.5k people filed into Wembley to watch them lose to Bayer Leverkusen in the 2016-17 Champions League.

Spurs have confirmed that Wembley's top tier will be closed for the EFL Cup fourth-round match against West Ham on October 25, so the capacity will be limited to 70,000 for the London derby.

"Spurs have yet to win at home in the league so far this season but they must surely break their Wembley duck sooner rather than later", Owen told BetVictor. Both players have been out with injury for some time, and could return by the end of the month.
