Work is continuing on Tottenham's new White Hart Lane stadium with the club releasing the latest pictures of the rebuild.

The revamped venue will become the largest club football stadium in London with a capacity of 61,559, overtaking the 60,000 Arsenal's Emirates Stadium holds.

The single-tier South stand will accommodate 17,500 home spectators alone when the club returns to their old home next season.

Spurs have endured an inconsistent time at their temporary Wembley base to date.

Tottenham have not won a Premier League match at England's national stadium, drawing twice and losing once.

However, Mauricio Pochettino's men alleviated the growing pressure by beating Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the Champions League and Barnsley 1-0 in the EFL Cup at the ground.

Saturday's opponents Bournemouth have also struggled, both home and away this term, and have just one victory from their opening seven top-flight fixtures leaving them second-bottom of the table.
