Tottenham poised to break Premier League attendance record

Eddie Howe the manager of Bournemouth shakes hands with Lewis Cook after his side's 0-0 draw during the Premier League match between AFC Bournemouth and Leicester City at Vitality

Eddie Howe the manager of Bournemouth shakes hands with Lewis Cook after his side's 0-0 draw during the Premier League match between AFC Bournemouth and Leicester City at Vitality

Tottenham Hotspur are set to break the Premier League attendance record when they host Bournemouth at Wembley on Saturday, reports The Daily Mail.

Sportsmail understands that ticket sales are fast closing in on the current record of 76,098 - set when Manchester United beat Blackburn 4-1 at Old Trafford in March 2007.

The 90,000 capacity stadium is split into 158 sections for ticketing purposes and only five of those sections have limited tickets available.

It is likely that they will still fall short of the club record attendance of 85,512, set at Wembley against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League last season.

It remains to be seen if the extra crowd can influence a change in form, with Spurs yet to win in the league at their temporary home following draws with Swansea and Burnley and the defeat by Chelsea.

The news will come as a welcome boost to Mauricio Pochettino as the 26-year-old has been a key player for Tottenham since joining the club from Southampton in 2016.

AFC Bournemouth have struggled to make much of an impact so far this season; indeed, Eddie Howe's team have won just once in the Premier League - at home against Brighton and Hove Albion - while the Cherries have scored just one goal in three league games away from the Vitality Stadium.

Erik Lamela and Danny Rose are expected to return in the coming weeks. Lamela has missed the last 12 months of action, while Rose has been out since January.
