​Tottenham poised to break Premier League attendance record

Tottenham are set to break the 10-year Premier League attendance record this Saturday as ticket sales edge closer to the milestone Manchester United set in 2007, reports the London Evening Standard.

The Red Devils have held the record since their win against Blackburn at Old Trafford 10 years ago, which saw 76,098 fans witness the 4-1 victory.

But as Spurs prepare for this weekend's clash against Bournemouth, ticket sales creep behind United's milestone thanks to their temporary home of Wembley - which has a 90,000 capacity.

Tottenham's highest attendance currently stands at 70,724, sitting just behind United who lead the way with 74,974.

With Tottenham expecting a higher turnout on Saturday than their 2-1 league defeat by Chelsea in August - which saw 73,587 fans through the turnstiles - Spurs are advising supporters to arrive early for the 3pm kick-off.
