A Tottenham Hotspur Win Against Manchester United Will Emphasise The Fact They Must Stay At Wembley For The Rest Of The Season

Tottenham Hotspur can move within six points of Premier League high-flyers Liverpool this afternoon if they can beat Manchester United at Wembley in an epic Super Sunday clash.

Well, if Spurs can defeat an in-form, free-scoring United side then it just secures the fact in my mind that they should stay at Wembley for the remainder of this season.

Spurs fans are understandably getting a little frustrated with the new White Hart Lane fiasco, as they are desperate to see their side grace the turf at the new north London stadium, but while the supporters will be desperate to get their first taste of their new-look home, it could ultimately hinder their quest for silverware this season.

Their Premier League clash with Crystal Palace on March 16 has been a date thrown around by media outlets for their first game at White Hart Lane, but there's still not been any official statement from the club outlining when Mauricio Pochettino's side will take to the pitch in their first competitive game back on home soil.

Well, Spurs fans you should just think about the ramifications a switch from Wembley to White Hart Lane at the business end of the season and how it will affect the manager, players and the fans.

Like a new pair of shoes, a new stadium can take a little time to get used to, and if Spurs are still in the race for the league title and challenging for Champions League and FA Cup glory then a late switch to the Lane could ultimately see their bid for trophies ended.

Yes, you can argue it's merely changing from one pitch to anything - and there's no doubting the lush, new-look grass at White Hart Lane will be a bit more immaculate than the Wembley turf has been this season, but it will take time for the players to get used to their new surroundings, and Spurs need to give themselves the biggest chance possible to challenge in the final few months of the season.

Palace, Brighton, Huddersfield and West Ham will be the first four home games for Spurs, should they move in the middle of March, but with the players showing their class at Wembley in recent weeks then Spurs' fans should just wait until the end of the season before switching to their plush new abode.
