Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris has called on his team-mates to make their new stadium "special" as they prepare for the first full season in their new home.

Spurs moved into the magnificent Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last April after lengthy delays and settled in with memorable wins over Crystal Palace in the first game there and a 1-0 Champions League success over Manchester City a week later.

Having played at Wembley for 18 months, Spurs should get the real value of home advantage back, and Lloris wants his team-mates to make it count.

"The good thing is we are going to start the season in our new stadium and this has to be a help and a big boost for us with our fans behind us," he said.

"This stadium has to be a difficult place for any opponent, in the Premier League and Champions League, and it belongs to the players to make it special.

"For sure the crowd will follow, but the main actors and protagonists are the players and it belongs to us to put in the good energy."
