Tottenham Hotspur published a statement on their website urging the fans going to White Hart Lane on Sunday for the clash against Chelsea to arrive earlier at the stadium for heightened security.
The club will open the gates of WHL at 9.30 am, three hours before the kick-off.
The statement read:
Those supporters who arrived close to kick off [for the West Ham fixture] experienced extended queues due to these additional checks with some unfortunately missing the start of the game as a result.
Security WILL NOT be reduced or compromised in the event of queues forming to clear security and kick off will not be delayed as a result of this.
We should therefore like to remind fans once again that it is important to plan their journey for an earlier than normal arrival time.
