Spurs' Champions League journey ended almost as soon as it began, with their Wembley woes undermining Pochettino's progress.

Moussa Sissoko hopes Tottenham Hotspur will be allowed to play their Europa League fixtures at White Hart Lane after bombing out of the Champions League, Sky Sports reports.

Spurs finally earned a place back at the top table of European football for the first time since 2011 last season, but the excitement and expectation soon transformed into disappointment, with Mauricio Pochettino’s inexperienced side crashing out in the group stage after Tuesday’s abject loss in Monaco.

Due to the construction work taking place at their new stadium adjacent to White Hart Lane, Spurs were forced to play their ‘home’ fixtures at Wembley, however, with the prospect of travelling to the famous ground proving something of a fillip for away sides.

Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen both secured vital wins away from home, with Spurs mirroring the struggles of North London rivals Arsenal when they were also forced to face up to opposition in the national stadium between 1998 and 2000, failing to progress beyond the first round in either season.

And Sissoko believes Spurs should be allowed to return home as they embark on yet another Europa League campaign.

"I think it would be good for us to play at home in the Europa League, and by home, I mean White Hart Lane," the 27-year-old said in quotes reported by Sky Sports.

"Going home would make it easier for us. We know the stadium and it would be better for us."

Tottenham appeared inhibited right from the off on the wide Wembley surface, lacking their usual intensity despite the presence of over 80,000 fans cheering them on from the sidelines.
