Victor Wanyama has revealed that he and his Tottenham teammates cannot wait to step onto the turf at Wembley for a second time.
The combative midfielder is set to start in midfield against Group E rivals Bayer Leverkusen, as Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs look to secure their second Champions League win of the season.
Wanyama was quoted by Tottenham’s official Twitter account as saying that Wednesday night’s clash is a big game for the north London outfit, as they look to secure their first Wembley win.

Spurs have come under criticism for staging their European home matches at Wembley instead of White Hart Lane, after losing 2-1 to Group E leaders Monaco in September.
However, a vital 1-0 win away in Russia against CSKA Moscow before a superb draw against Bayer Leverkusen has put Spurs into second place in the group as they eye progression into the knockout phase.
Wanyama, who moved to north London this summer from Southampton for £12million, has hit the ground running with his new side after helping Pochettino’s team concede just five goals in 10 Premier league games.
A win against Leverkusen could see Spurs leapfrog Monaco to the top of Group E and move them to within touching distance of qualifying for the last 16.
