Lucas Moura excited by Tottenham's new stadium

Tottenham ace Lucas Moura believes their new stadium will catapult the club to a new level.

Fifth-placed Spurs host Jurgen Klopp's Premier League pace-setters Liverpool at ­temporary home Wembley on Saturday because their new 62,000-seater arena, being built next door to their old White Hart Lane base, is still not ready.

But Moura believes when that finally happens, it will move them up another gear.

“Tottenham is one of the great clubs of England, and at a stadium with a bigger ­capacity, it can get even ­bigger," said the 26-year-old, who began his career in Brazil with Sao Paulo. “We are at the most important moment to grow as a club.

“There is a big future here in the Premier League and Champions League, and we can go a long way in Europe, even now. It's an exciting time."
