Tottenham Hotspur take on Crystal Palace this evening.
Tottenham Hotspur are playing their first Premier League game at their new stadium this evening, after a long, long wait to move in.
Spurs were hoping to be in their new home in September, but delays have pushed it back to until tonight, after a couple of test events for youth and legends games.
London neighbours Crystal Palace are the first visitors, and the score is 0-0 at half time, as fans wait for the first goal to be scored at their new home.
Harry Kane will be a favourite for that first goal, but Palace have been resolute and still pose a threat on the counter, meaning they may need to be wary of their party being spoiled.
Those fans will be blown away at Tottenham's new stadium, with the 62,000 all-seater stadium earning rave reviews from all who have seen it.
Ex-Spurs striker Gary Lineker has given his view on the stadium, suggesting that it was well worth the wait, branding it 'fan-bloody-tastic'.
Lineker added that he isn't sure how Spurs haven't scored in the first half, with the wait ongoing for a first goal at the new stadium.
