Arsene Wenger says that it is likely that Spurs’ progress will be halted by the move to a new stadium.
The club have been one of the most improved division over the last two years. Manager Mauricio Pochettino has been able to bring success to the club without spending a lot of money. However, Wenger says that the club will be facing a cash crunch when they move to the new £750 million stadium at the start of the 2018-19 season. This brand-new stadium will have the ability to manage Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium in terms of capacity while being able to do significantly better in every other regard.
Arsenal moved into the Emirates stadium just over a decade ago and faced a lot of issues with regard to finances. Wenger was unable to spend much money in the transfer window, and he predicts that Spurs will face a similar situation after the move to this brand-new stadium.

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen has said that he is convinced that Arsenal can finish in the top four this season. The possibility of Arsenal qualifying for the Champions League next season has been under major doubt right from the start. However, Arsenal had been putting a run of form recently, which has made them the favourites to finish in the top four.
Teams currently competing for this position include the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham, and Liverpool. Even though Liverpool remain the outsiders, Arsenal need to perform well in the remaining matches in order to finish in the top four.
Even though Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger may have stated in the past that Champions League money is not essential for their survival in the near future, it is definitely important for the attraction of top players in the world. It would also be essential for Arsenal because they need to entice star striker Robin van Persie to stay in North London.
Arsenal have managed three victories in a row against top teams like Tottenham, Liverpool, and AC Milan. It is this form that has convinced the Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen that they can finish in the top four amidst the competition, which is quite strong.
