Tottenham Hotspur new stadium: Every on-pitch first at Spurs’ brand new arena

The impressive single-tier South Stand was full of supporters hailing their heroes as they battled Crystal Palace for three vital points.
Spurs were the victors in the end with scrappy goals from Heung-Min Son and Christian Eriksen all they needed in the end.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men were dominant and it was obvious to all at triumph on opening night was all that was going through their minds.
It was especially evident from Danny Rose, who dropped to his knees in celebration when Son’s shot hit the back of the net after taking a wicked deflection.
Meanwhile, Harry Kane seemed intent on scoring the first goal at the new arena, trying shots from several angles in his attempts to beat Guaita.
The accolade went to Son in the end but he wasn’t the only man to earn himself a first at their N17 home. talkSPORT.com takes a look at the other key firsts at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
