New Tottenham stadium has made a huge difference to the club, says Ledley King

Tottenham hero Ledley King believes the club have been lifted by their new stadium.

Spurs have settled into their new home with two victories in a week, including last night’s fantastic 1-0 victory over Manchester City in the Champions League.

The £1billion arena has been ranked among the best football grounds in the world – and King believes it has inspired the Spurs players.

“Wembley is a fantastic stadium, but having played there for the last two years, there’s no doubt that playing at home makes a difference, especially on these big European nights,” the former defender told talkSPORT 2.

Spurs’ breathtaking new ground has seen two Tottenham wins already

“The crowd were the twelfth man. What’s fantastic about the stadium is the compactness of it. You can really feel it. You feel close to the pitch in a similar way to White Hart Lane.

“It definitely makes a difference. The players can already feel the difference that this new stadium is making for them.

“It’s been built to accommodate the players, to feel at home in a similar way to White Hart Lane. And I think they have felt at home.
