Mauricio Pochettino Excited About Life After White Hart Lane

Demolition work will start on Monday and Spurs will play next season's home matches at Wembley before moving into their new 61,500-seater stadium, next door to White Hart Lane, for the 2018-19 campaign.

"I hope Sunday will be the most special day in the last three seasons".

Mauricio Pochettino has called on his players to give White Hart Lane the send-off it deserves this weekend, as Tottenham Hotspur welcome Manchester United in their final home outing. "I think for the fans it means a lot but in the same way, I don't want to be wrong, but I think our fans are so excited to welcome the new stadium too".

The highest points of Spurs' time at White Hart Lane must be their league title wins in 1950/51 and 1960/61, the latter part of a cup double won under Bill Nicholson.

Spurs say goodbye to the Lane, their home since 1899, when they host Manchester United on Sunday.

A ceremony featuring figures from the club's past will take place after the game and fans have been offered the chance to buy their seats for £50 (RM280).

Spurs will play their last ever game at the famous old ground on Sunday ahead of their move to a new stadium.

And Pochettino, whose side will be playing all their home games at Wembley next season, thinks the new stadium will help Tottenham to reach the next level. "Now we go every time to win with the same mentality".

United have unhappy recent memories of a farewell match at a venerable London venue.

However, Tottenham conceded defeat in the title race with a shock loss to West Ham a week ago, with Chelsea officially sealing their triumph after the 1-0 win over West Brom on Friday.

Following their Europa League exploits on Thursday, Jose Mourinho will nearly certainly field an under-strength team, and so expect Mauricio Pochettino's men to capitalise against a vulnerable Red Devils side.

Matteo Darmian may start at left-back again with Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo out injured while Eric Bailly is expected to start in the league as he'll be suspended for the Europa League final. Instead of joining the sentimental masses, we're choosing to focus on the tactics of the match itself.

Indeed, this will not be the first time Pochettino has been at a club that has upped sticks, although Espanyol, the Spanish outfit where he was first a player and then manager, did so to relieve crippling debts, and Barcelona's "other" team went on to win the Copa del Rey in 2000 and 2006.

Sky Go in the United Kingdom; and NBC Sports Live and Telemundo Deportes En Vivo in the US. We're not going to say that matches are not important. Now we are thinking about next season and pre-season, signing players, retaining players.
