Harry Kane’s double at West Ham on Saturday put Tottenham back on course in the Premier League, and it seems the club’s new stadium is also headed in the right direction.
Tottenham have released new images of construction work at their new 64,000-seat stadium, and the progress illustrated will convince fans that it will be ready for the start of next season.
Despite the 3-2 win at West Ham at the weekend, Spurs have struggled at their temporary Wembley home so far this season, having lost to Chelsea and only managed draws with Burnley and Swansea City in the Premier League. While they beat Borussia Dortmund in the Uefa Champions League, a 1-0 Carabao Cup win against second-tier Championship side Barnsley failed to convince the faithful.

The images of the stadium were released just days after it was revealed that the club’s White Hart Lane site – its home for more than 100 years – has been removed from Ordnance Survey maps.
The old stadium closed at the end of last season, with the new arena being built on an adjacent plot, and the UK’s best-known cartography firm has now amended its maps.
“We usually share stories about our teams adding new features to the map, such as the Queensferry Crossing or even a whale, but we also have to remove features from our database,” OS write on their official blog.
“London-based surveyor Tony Killilea was recently tasked with removing a football stadium from the map.
“Tony and the team will be visiting regularly over the next 12 months as Tottenham build their new 61,000 capacity stadium, which is due to open for the 2018-19 football season, to ensure that it is logged in our database too.”
