Tottenham to surpass PL giants to make top flight history this weekend - report
By Russell Edge
Tottenham are expected to take their place in the history books this weekend as they are look set to break the Premier League attendance record against Bournemouth, according to a report.
The Daily Mail claim on their website that Spurs look likely to beat the current record of 76,098 set by Premier League giants Manchester United when they played host to Blackburn back in 2007.
The club’s potential record breaking attendance comes thanks to their temporary home of Wembley having a capacity of 90,000, although they have failed to come close to selling out this season.
Their highest attendance of the campaign came when Spurs fell to a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea, with 73,587 fans watching on.
Tottenham’s own record attendance came in last season’s Champions League match against Bayer Leverkusen, also played at Wembley, where 85, 512 supporters made their way through the turnstiles to see Spurs slip to a 1-0 defeat.

However, fans will be hoping that the club can end the Wembley woes Mauricio Pochettino’s side have suffered this season, having failed to pick up a league victory at home.
The defeat the Chelsea, Spurs’ first home game of the campaign, has been followed by disappointing draws against both Burnley and Swansea, which has been in stark contrast to the club’s impressive away performances.
