Tottenham has confirmed that its Premier League meeting with Manchester City at the end of October and all three of the home Champions League group games will be played at Wembley.

The club announced in August that it had been forced to delay the move into its new stadium at White Hart Lane until at least late October due to "issues with the critical safety systems", after initially targeting September 15.

At the time of that announcement, Spurs remained hopeful of being able to face City at its new home on October 28, but any chance of that has now been dashed – the game being confirmed for England's national stadium a day later due to a clash with an NFL fixture between the Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Spurs insisted that there is still a possibility the stadium could be ready for October 29, but it decided to go down the Wembley route "in the interest of clarity and certainty" as it will not know about White Hart Lane's status until much closer to the date.

The London club has also taken a similar decision for its home games in the Champions League group stage to played at Wembley, after being drawn with Inter, PSV and Barcelona.

The final home group stage game will take place against Inter on November 28.
