Tottenham's next fixtures compared to Arsenal, Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea


Tottenham come out of the international break hoping to renew their charge up the Premier League table with a clash at home against a winless Sheffield United. Ange Postecoglou will be hoping his team can do the business to keep up the pressure on Manchester City and the rest of the chasing pack, especially given the upcoming fixtures.

Spurs will be in action just four times before the next international break in October, a consequence of losing to Fulham on penalties in the Carabao Cup and missing out on European football entirely last season. Meanwhile, their rivals in the push for a place in Europe this season will be in action up to seven times in that same period.

Postecoglou's side have been playing some fine football while racking up some impressive results in the process. The Carabao Cup defeat aside, things are going about as well as could be hoped so far for Spurs after losing talisman Harry Kane in the summer transfer window.

But how does the next month stack up for Spurs and their rivals? Well, there are two huge clashes on the horizon that will test their European credentials to the limit - and another two clashes which give an opportunity to lay down a marker to the rest of the league.

Tottenham's next fixtures

Sheffield United (H) - 16/09

A real opportunity to get more points on the board. The Blades drew last time out against Everton, who have suffered a similarly poor start. Before that, Paul Heckingbottom's side had lost their first three Premier League games of the season, as well as crashing out of the Carabao Cup against League One's Lincoln City.

While that doesn't tell the entire story with all three of the Blades' defeats coming by just a single goal, they were on the backfoot for most of those three fixtures, facing a combined 86 shots from their opponents so far in the Premier League. With Spurs having scored 11 goals in their four games already, Postecoglou's attack will surely be licking their lips at the prospect of facing such a porous defence.

Arsenal (A) - 24/09

A clash always marked in the Premier League calendar, both teams are flying high so far ahead of a game which could define the early stages of the season. However, Spurs may have a small advantage heading into this clash with Arsenal in action against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League during midweek.

Form goes out the window on derby days, as the saying goes; but having the fresher legs of the two teams could prove significant in a game which so regularly comes down to fine margins. A win here would not only secure bragging rights for some time, but also show just how serious a threat Tottenham can be to the top sides this season.

Liverpool (H) - 30/09

Another giant clash for Postecoglou and Co, and Spurs could again be benefitting from having the fresher legs of the two teams. Liverpool are in action against recently-relegated Leicester City in the Carabao Cup just three days before this game. They then have a Europa League fixture the following week to prepare for, giving Spurs a potential advantage.

Like Tottenham and Arsenal, Jurgen Klopp's side have also started the Premier League season with three wins and a draw so far, with a remarkable comeback against Newcastle their standout result, having done so with 10-men for much of the game. Virgil van Dijk was the man sent off and has had an extra game added to his suspension due to his reaction on the pitch, but will be available for the clash in north London, injuries and further suspensions permitting.

Luton (A) - 07/10

Along with Sheffield United, Luton are one of four teams yet to win a Premier League game so far this season. It's been a tough start for Rob Edwards' side, who have only played three games due to the postponement of their opening home fixture.

The Hatters were put to the sword by Brighton on the opening day of the season, with two late efforts from the Seagulls ending what Luton had hoped could be a comeback in their 4-1 defeat on the South Coast. They followed it up by shipping three goals to a Chelsea side who have only scored two more in their other three games combined.

Spurs will travel to the infamous Kenilworth Road in hope of sealing a victory in the last game before another international break. In the four-game run for Spurs between the two slots for international fixtures, they will be hoping to take points off their rivals and relegation candidates alike - and here we take a look at how their opponents are stacked in the next month.
