That used to be so in the past and no problem if everyone plays under the same conditions. I think in the PL that it is not an unreasonable expectation these days for the pitch being used to be maintained to the same standards as every other ground. Other sides playing Spurs at their new ground later in the season will not be subject to that same conditions........so if Agüero misses a chance or penalty because he slips on the surface or the ball diverts off an awful divot into the path of Kane for him to score........
I think the solution would have been to use another PL ground. Like the Emirates
