Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has raved about the club’s new stadium after they started with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.
Pochettino also gave a special mention to the club’s chairman Daniel Levy, speaking after the win on what he called an “emotional” night.
Second-half goals from Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen were enough to give Spurs a deserved three points, having dominated Roy Hodgson’s visitors on the night.
Spurs proved their move back can give them a late-season boost and they revived their top-four hopes with a first victory in six games, putting themselves back above Arsenal into third.
With four of their remaining six Premier League games at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the Argentine will hope that it will help them over the line in their bid for a fourth successive Champions League qualification.
“It’s a special moment, a special night. I feel and believe it is the best stadium in the world,” he said, speaking to Sky Sports.
“We knew the game was going to be difficult and tough. You don’t know how we’re going to react but, playing the way we played in the first half, we were going to score.
“I’m pleased for Daniel Levy because of this fantastic project and I dedicate that victory to him.
“The emotion was amazing from the beginning. To win was so important to us. Today we touched the glory. Now we need to touch the glory of lifting trophies. Now is the start of a chapter. We close one chapter and open another chapter and bring victory to our fans.”
