Daily Mail - - Sports Newspaper Of The Year - By MATT BAR­LOW at the Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur Sta­dium

SON HE­UNG-MIN scored the his­toric first goal at the grand open­ing of Tot­ten­ham’s new £1bil­lion sta­dium as they beat Crys­tal Palace 2-0 last night.

Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino hailed it as a day never to be for­got­ten. ‘i feel so proud,’ the Spurs boss said. ‘So happy. it’s dif­fi­cult to de­scribe the emo­tions. it was a very spe­cial day, i will al­ways keep it in my heart. To­day we touched the glory. We are World Cup win­ners in fa­cil­i­ties. Now we need to be the same level on the pitch.’ Chris­tian Erik­sen also scored as Spurs jumped up to third.

Manch­ester City’s win against Cardiff at the Eti­had saw them re­place Liver­pool at the top and Cal­lum Hud­son-odoi in­spired Chelsea to beat Brighton 3-0 and move up to fifth.
