Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has urged his team-mates to create history as they prepare to play in the club’s new stadium in the coming weeks.

After months of waiting, Spurs finally confirmed their first game in their new stadium will be against Crystal Palace on Wednesday 3 April.

They must overcome Liverpool first and a win could derail the Reds’ title charge as they try to overcome Manchester City.

The Champions League now appears to be Spurs’ best chance of winning a trophy and Alli insists the squad should be inspired by their new £1billion stadium.

“It still has the same feeling of when I was playing at White Hart Lane,” Alli told Sky Sports. “It’s amazing and we’re all very excited, we’ve been waiting for this for a long time. It’s finally come.

“There were a lot of memories at White Hart Lane, hopefully we can make some better ones here. You never know what is going to happen in football, but we definitely feel the club is heading [in the right direction].

“We’re getting better as a team and we have to keep doing that. We’ve got some great young players and an amazing manager. We’re all enjoying playing together and we want to try and create history.

“It’s a difficult point of the season, every game is massive, and you’ve got to get as many points as you can. Hopefully we can make a positive end in this stadium.”

Liverpool remain 1.60 favourites to win this weekend, while the draw is 4.00 and Spurs can be backed at odds of 5.50.
