Spurs to face Crystal Palace in first game at new home

Tottenham's first game in their new stadium will be against Crystal Palace on April 3.

Spurs' long-awaited move into their new 62,000-seater home was hinging on the outcome of Brighton's FA Cup clash at Millwall.

With the Seagulls winning a penalty shootout against the Championship outfit to book a place in the semi-finals, Palace will become the first visitors to the new, as yet unnamed, stadium for a rearranged midweek Premier League tie.

Mauricio Pochettino's side will then return there six days later for the Champions League quarter-final first leg against Manchester City.

Spurs originally hoped to be in there for the start of the new season but that was quickly put back to September.

However, after failure to "critical alarm systems" in August, that never materialised and a new moving in date was only revealed earlier this month.

There will be two test events in the next fortnight, with the club's Under-18s side playing Southampton next Sunday, followed by a Legends game against Inter Milan on March 30.

Chairman Daniel Levy has revealed to the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust the club were never in discussions with Nike over the sale of stadium naming rights.

It was reported that the sportswear brand, who make Spurs' kit, had bought the rights for the ground to be called the Nike Stadium, but Levy has denied that and says no deal has yet been agreed.

Tottenham should have Harry Winks and Eric Dier back for the Champions League last-16 second leg at Borussia Dortmund.

Winks missed the north London derby with a hip injury while Dier has been laid low for a number of weeks with tonsillitis.

Dele Alli is back in training but is not thought to have travelled with the squad as Spurs hold a 3-0 lead from the first leg.

Ahead of the second-leg clash, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said: "We want to go to the next round in a very important competition like the Champions League.

"We all agree that we need to perform in the best way, it will be a tough game, very difficult."

On the availability of Winks and Dier, Pochettino added: "We need to assess both. They are here because we need one day more to assess if they can take part.

"Dier has been a long time out, maybe he can be on the bench, I don't believe he can start, Harry Winks the same."

Tottenham will give fitness tests to Jan Vertonghen and Harry Winks ahead of Saturday's north London derby against Arsenal.

Both men have hip injuries. Vertonghen's was picked up in the build-up to Wednesday's defeat to Chelsea, where Winks sustained a similar problem.

Harry Kane will be available after he escaped retrospective action from the Football Association for an apparent headbutt on Blues defender Cesar Azpilicueta.
