Tottenham Hotspur 'to break Premier League attendance record this weekend'

Eddie Howe the manager of Bournemouth shakes hands with Lewis Cook after his side's 0-0 draw during the Premier League match between AFC Bournemouth and Leicester City at Vitality

Merson has gone for a 3-0 win for Tottenham as he expects them to finally break their Premier League Wembley duck.

According to the Daily Mail, ticket sales for the match are nearing the current record of 76,098, set when Manchester United beat Blackburn Rovers 4-1 at Old Trafford in March 2007. Of 158 sections at the 90,000-capacity national stadium, "only five still have limited availability of tickets for the clash against struggling Bournemouth".

Tottenham have proven that they can fill Wembley Stadium if motivated - a year ago 85.5k people filed into Wembley to watch them lose to Bayer Leverkusen in the 2016-17 Champions League.

Mauricio Pochettino's team have been magnificent on their travels this season, having won each of the five fixtures that they have played away from home; Premier League results at Wembley, however, have been less impressive as Spurs have collected just two points from their opening three league matches at their temporary home.

Spurs are playing at Wembley while their new stadium is being built and will hope a huge attendance can given them a lift against Bournemouth. Draws to Swansea and Burnley and a defeat to Chelsea have meant that their bad luck in the ground has continued from their poor Champions League campaign last season. Spurs restricted the upper bowl for their match against Chelsea in August to prevent Chelsea fans from infiltrating the home supporters' end (still attracting 70k fans), and Spurs are doing something similar when West Ham visit Wembley for the Carabao Cup on October 25.

But in order to catch those teams at the top, they are going to need to start winning at home.
