Pochettino: United and City sign who they want; Spurs can't

The Exploding Heads head to Wembley to try their wizardry on the stadium, in the hope to lift Spurs' curse.

- Tottenham are now spending a lot to develop their stadium. The FC crew discuss Spurs' persisting struggles at Wembley and the differences playing there instead of White Hart Lane.

Tottenham continue to rely on the goals from England's Harry Kane, the Ballon d'Or nominee has scored 15 in his last 10 games for club and country, but will need to improve their record at their temporary home if they are to mount a title challenge like last season. Ticket sales are reportedly "fast closing in on the current record" of 76,098 - set when ManU beat Blackburn 4-1 at Old Trafford in March '07.

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. The national stadium holds 90,000 fans, and Spurs are set to fill up a majority of those seats when Bournemouth come to town.

Spurs, who now sit 3rd in the Premier League table behind the two Manchester clubs, return to action this Saturday with a league clash versus Bournemouth at White Hart Lane.

"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.

Erik Lamela and Danny Rose are expected to return in the coming weeks.

Lamela has not played for almost 12 months due to hip problems and left-back Rose has been out since January with a knee injury.
