Tottenham's players might have thought that this day would never come... however, they have finally played football at the club's brand new stadium.

Seemingly endless setbacks and delays to the completion of the arena has fed frustration amongst the fans and players at the club, with the team forced to play the majority of this season at Wembley Stadium, despite being told that the club's inaugural fixture would take place against Liverpool way back in September 2018.

However, Crystal Palace will be the first team to visit the new north London landmark, travelling across the capital to take on Spurs on April 3.

With important domestic and European fixtures on the horizon, the Lilywhites decided to relocate Thursday's first team training session from Enfield to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as the team prepare for the first of their upcoming crucial matches, coming against Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

The session not only gave the team's players a chance to regroup and train with their club colleagues following the international break, it also gave the squad an opportunity to become familiar with their new surroundings and make the club's new stadium a home.

Here is some of the squad's reaction to their first ever training session at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
