Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks acknowledges that the atmosphere at Wembley Stadium is not the same as that at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks has suggested that the atmosphere at Wembley Stadium was flat for Tuesday night's 1-0 win over Barnsley in the third round of the EFL Cup.

Spurs offered tickets for as little as £5 for their third match in six days at the national ground, but there were just 23,926 present to see the tie settled by Dele Alli's 65th-minute goal.

The attendance was lower than for Spurs' pre-season friendly with Juventus, which attracted 26,251, but similar to the crowd at White Hart Lane for last season's League Cup third-round win over Gillingham – 26,244.

Winks told the London Evening Standard: "It's just the size of the stadium.

"It's difficult to really get that same atmosphere that you get at White Hart Lane or if you have a full stadium here.

"But the fans are always excellent and for us they were brilliant in getting us over the line."

The attendance was the lowest for a men's match at the new Wembley, excluding the FA Trophy and FA Vase finals.
