Pochettino: There will be no excuses for Tottenham at Wembley next season

Mauricio Pochettino's team are expecting a "special" day tomorrow when they play their last game at White Hart Lane.

Europa League finalists Manchester United continue their busy schedule with another major fixture and Jose Mourinho is once again expected to field a much-changed line-up.

Manchester United will be missing a few players through long term injuries including Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. It's about adaptation. When you are focused and you feel that your home is White Hart Lane, it's so hard to change. "I think for the fans it means a lot but in the same way, I don't want to be wrong, but I think our fans are so excited to welcome the new stadium too".

"I think it's our expectation, with the new facilities and stadium, to move to the last level".

Levy has reassured fans in a Spurs Supporters Trust meeting that he will not be selling Tottenham's key players this summer.

"I'm a very sensitive person and so emotional".

"It is exciting for us and it is a unique project here in England".

In retrospect, it's not the result that left the biggest impression, though it's easy to say after a 4-0 victory. I said that before, if a player can not be on the pitch. Further ahead, the entrance to the 118-year-old building is juxtaposed with a partially complete stadium next to it. Cranes were housed in the shell of the new stadium, swallowing its predecessor like it was part of a game of Pac-Man.

"It was sad because it was for reasons that are different to what Tottenham have today". Next season it's Wembley only. "After leaving Sarria (Stadium), we spent 12 years at the Olympic Stadium in Montjuic, and won the Copa del Rey twice".

"Why not win some titles or trophies at Wembley?"

"It's a moment where the club need you - your support, your effort, your best". All of these clubs that have had to move - West Ham, Arsenal, Manchester City - away from what they would call their "spiritual home" and we're not doing that.

"Whenever we play golf and are all together now we talk about it and enjoy the company of each other. We were very strong".

Tottenham's Premier League title challenge all but came to an end last weekend after they went down 1-0 at West Ham.

Mourinho has failed to win a league game at White Hart Lane since August 2005, drawing two and losing two during his spells at Chelsea.

We're certainly the first in the Premier League in living memory.

"You understand it because it's logical and sensible and grown up but the romantic aspect of it is that we've got the greatest ground in the world already and it's going to be a odd feeling on Sunday".
