In terms of infrastructure, Tottenham are one of the most envied in the Premier League as they recently moved into their 62,000-seater stadium.

Spurs have been playing in the Wembley Stadium for two years now as they chose to build their own stadium, and Chelsea’s north London rival have built a magnificent piece that’s currently hailed as one of the best in the world.

Spurs moved into the Tottenham Stadium as they played their first official game in their new ground on Wednesday night beating fellow London side 2-0 to mark their first game in the stadium to much fanfare.

The battle for top four has been intense in recent weeks and Spurs’ win over Palace took them back to third, with Arsenal having a game in hand.

While Chelsea were beating Brighton, Spurs ended the first-half against Palace 0-0, and if the result had remained the same, Chelsea would have beaten Tottenham to the third place on the table, but goals from Son and Christian Eriksen helped Spurs record a 2-0 win and move back into third place, having gone five games without a win.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has taken a tiny dig at Spurs following their stadium move. The Belgian hailed their new stadium but insisted that he’d rather choose Chelsea’s trophies over Tottenham’s new stadium and joked that he hopes it stays this way.

“I think Tottenham for two or three years have been one of the best teams in England. That is for sure,” Hazard said.

“We are Chelsea, and it is a big derby. I don’t like that to be fair but we have to accept it.

“For the Premier League it is good – new stadium, they have top players. But at the end you know Chelsea we won a lot of trophies, they have not, so I hope this continues.”
