Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to urge celebrity duo Chas and Dave to perform on the pitch after confirming they will attend the final fixture at White Hart Lane.
The musical duo will watch Spurs play for one last time at their historic ground against Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.
Chas Hodges confirmed their attendance on his personal Twitter account on Sunday.
“To all my Spurs pals. I’m gonna be there next Sunday. Dave is coming too,” said Hodges.

Chas and Dave are well known among the Spurs fans for their song ‘Hot Shot Tottenham’ which was released in 1987 prior to the FA Cup final loss to Coventry.

Spurs will move to Wembley Stadium for next season as work on their new stadium reaches a new phase which will see White Hart Lane demolished.
The 36,000-seater has been the home of Tottenham since it opened in 1899 and it’s record attendance came in an FA Cup clash with Sunderland in 1938 when 75,038 people packed the stands.
Spurs’ hopes of winning the Premier League were all-but ended on Friday night as they lost to West Ham.
However Mauricio Pochettino’s men have not lost on home turf all season and have only dropped four points at The Lane.
