The options of the Arsenal remain rather traditional and it remains to be seen if they will look at the Spurs on the culinary front.
The Spurs' new ground is about four miles further from central London than the Emirates, and with both clubs advising against driving to their respective stadiums, public transport is the recommended method of transportation.
For fans arriving at Euston station, the Arsenal's Emirates Stadium is less than 20 minutes from the London Underground, while the journey will be approximately half an hour to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, in underground and then by bus or on foot.

In addition to football, Tottenham has a ten-year partnership with the NFL, with the intention of hosting two NFL matches at the stadium in 2019.
The grass soccer field at the stadium will be retractable and will sit on an artificial surface that will be used for NFL games – as well as concerts and other events. The stadium will be the first of its kind in the UK to have two courts within the same bowl.
Meanwhile, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay and Muse are among the artists who have awarded Emirates Stadium for concerts, although there are no upcoming events coming soon.
In 2014, Arsenal lost the battle of the High Court to increase the number of concerts they could hold, having asked to double the number they could perform at the three to six stadium.
