Tottenham broke a 10-year-old Premier League attendance record in Sunday’s 4-1 win against Liverpool at Wembley.
The attendance of 80,827 surpassed the previous record of 76,098 — set when Manchester United beat Blackburn 4-1 at Old Trafford in March 2007.
It was still someway short of the club record of 85,512, set at Wembley against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League last season, which is also a record attendance for a British club at home. The national stadium, Spurs’ temporary home this season while their new 61,500-seater home is being built, has a capacity of 90,000.
Spurs fell just short of the Premier League record for both last weekend’s 1-0 win over Bournemouth (73,502) and the 2-1 defeat to Chelsea (73,587) in their first league match at Wembley in August, when tickets were on restricted general sale.
