Eriksen admits Spurs players happy to be leaving Wembley

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen admits the players are excited to be returning to their newly renovated stadium.

Spurs return to action after the international break with a trip to league leaders Liverpool.

Three days later they play their long-awaited first game at their new stadium against Crystal Palace.

Eriksen said: “Of course, everyone wanted to get away from Wembley as soon as possible, especially at the start of the season, but it is still our second home.

“It will be good for the fans, and it will be great to come home to White Hart Lane - and to a place that feels like our real home ground.

“It's an exceptional stadium that will mean a lot to the club for many years to come. Without a doubt it helps to take the club to take the next step.

“We have been waiting for a while for the stadium after all, so it will be great to get 'home' to the stadium that will be our home for the many years."
