Davies: Tottenham eyeing improvement on Arsenal Wembley record

Ben Davies has stated that Tottenham Hotspur are looking to do better than rivals Arsenal in the Champions League at Wembley Stadium.

Tottenham will be playing their European home games at Wembley this season and Spurs prepare to kick off their campaign on Wednesday night with a clash against French side Monaco.

Ahead of the encounter, defender Davies has gone on to express his excitement at the prospect of playing at English football's headquarters and added that Spurs are hopeful of bettering North London rivals Arsenal's poor record in the 1998/99 edition of the Champions League at the same venue.

Davies said: "We hope we can do better than Arsenal.

"We've put our preparations in place and will train there again before the first game.

"The pitch feels a lot bigger than at White Hart Lane and suits our game. We are a fit team, we like to pass the ball around and hopefully we can use that to our advantage. It will be a massive night and one that, as players, these are the stages you dream of playing on.

"We've nearly sold out the games and that crowd could be a huge advantage for us to qualify. That number of fans and the Wembley atmosphere can create some special nights for us."
