Gary Lineker has called on the handball law to be changed

Gary Lineker has come up with a Twitter solution to Tottenham’s Wembley woes – treat the national stadium as an away ground.

The former Spurs striker and Match of the Day host came up with the idea on Monday after Times journalist Bill Edgar tweeted about the team’s impressive record away from home.

Wembley is proving an achilles heel for Tottenham, who have taken just one point out of a possible six at the ground in the league this season after similarly struggling at the venue in European competition last season.

Lineker replied on his personal Twitter account with a suggestion that would enable the Spurs boss and players to “walk the league”.

Spurs have won both of their games on the road this season, securing convincing wins at Newcastle United and Everton.

But Pochettino’s side are yet to win a competitive match this season at their temporary new home, with a defeat against Chelsea and a draw against Burnley.

They have another tough match up next as they welcome Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League at the national stadium on Wednesday night.

In other Tottenham news, the club have been hit by a devastating blow as a key first-teamer has been sidelined until next year.
