Tottenham are reportedly reconsidering whether or not to play their home games at Wembley next season after their poor run of form there this year.
It hasn’t been a happy stomping ground for Spurs this season, as defeats to Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen led to their elimination from the Champions League in the group stages.
With Gent earning a 2-2 draw in their Europa League meeting on Thursday night to seal their progress to the round-of-16 at the expense of their Premier League rivals, it has seemingly led Tottenham to questioning whether or not to stay at Wembley next season as work continues on their spectacular new home.
In fairness, from a supporters perspective, they continue to travel to Wembley in their droves to sell the stadium out and the atmosphere at times on Thursday was electric.
Nevertheless, that will matter little if Spurs can’t get the job done on the pitch, and according to talkSPORT’s Ian Abrahams, the club are considering their options about playing their home games elsewhere next season.

It’s unclear at this stage as to what other options they have, as ultimately the likes of the Emirates, Stamford Bridge and the London Stadium are not going to be popular options or even feasible, so their options are limited and it could come down to Wembley being the only real choice.
Either way, it raises the question as to whether Wembley even really is to blame for Tottenham’s poor form in Europe? Of course it’s a massive difference from White Hart Lane, but surely with the quality in that squad, they should be beating Gent…
