Tottenham, now third in the table, continued to lag behind their top-six rivals in terms of players wages, spending £147m - about half that of Manchester United and £100m less than Arsenal.

After an opening ceremony that involved choirs, tenors and fireworks the game itself took a while to spark into life - Son Heung-min writing his name in the history books with the first goal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before Christian Eriksen wrapped up a 2-0 win.

"This type of moment you are going to keep in your mind, your memories, your heart".

Spurs had played their home games at London's Wembley Stadium.

"The new stadium was built for Champions League football, not the Europa League, so they've got to get into that next year for sure". You don't know how we're going to react but, playing the way we played in the first half, we were going to score. It was special like the last day at White Hart Lane.

Numerous day's marchers predicted the political elite will be punished if it fails to fully sever ties with Brussels. Propped on the stage beside him was a coffin with May's face on it and the word "democracy".

"We have to start to think it's a new chapter and that Tottenham can be a real contender for big things", Pochettino told reporters in the plush auditorium.

A comment from Hodgson after the match, where he claimed that the Eagles made it tough for Spurs did not go down too well with the Selhurst Park faithful either, with many believing their side were too timid in the encounter, and did exactly the opposite to what their manager said they did. Now we need to touch the glory of lifting trophies. "We have worked so hard to try to deliver the move to the stadium and we are here now".

"It's just fantastic, an unbelievable stadium and unbelievable crowd as well", he told broadcasters after the match.

"I still remember when I scored my first Premier League goal at White Hart Lane, it was against Crystal Palace and now I score not such a attractive goal but I think the most important goal for me. Wembley was not our home". We were courageous to move and play here this season.
