Poch could ask Bilic advice on coping with stadium move

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says he could ask West Ham counterpart Slaven Bilic for his advice over coping with the trauma of playing at a new stadium.

Spurs will leave White Hart Lane at the end of this season and will play at Wembley while their new home is being developed.

Before that, however, there is the small matter of trying to keep the pressure on Chelsea in this season’s title race.

Spurs have the chance to crank up the pressure on Chelsea this weekend – they can reduce the gap at the top to one point, before the Blues face Middlesbrough on Monday.

They must first, however, beat West Ham at the London Stadium, where the Hammers have struggled for form this term.

Tottenham confirmed last week they will move to Wembley next season while their own new stadium is completed, and Pochettino said he might even ask Bilic for some advice.

“Yes it will be a great opportunity,” Pochettino said.

“Before the game, after the game. Always is an opportunity to listen, to learn. He maybe can advise us on different things.

“You need to adapt to different things in a new stadium. We are aware that next season will be very important for us.

“It’s important for the players and the club to know that next season will be tough.”

Danny Rose is still not ready to return after three months out with a knee injury but the full-back is expected to resume full training next week.
