Tottenham’s soon-to-be announced manager Paulo Fonseca will be given a baptism of fire in the Premier League as he welcomes reigning champions Manchester City on the opening day of the season.

The Portuguese boss’ attention will then have to turn straight to the Europa Conference League, with a two-legged play-off tie coming two days before an away game against Wolves and then a home clash with Watford the following week, in what will be a hectic month for Spurs.

Then, in a spectacular double-header, Spurs will host rivals Chelsea before making the short trip across north London to face Arsenal the following week in a mouth-watering six days during September.

Both of the reverse fixtures are played again within seven days of each other in January, with Spurs welcoming Arsenal to White Hart Lane on January 15 before they are tasked with a difficult away game against Thomas Tuchel’s men on January 22.

Like every year, the annual fixture pile-up at Christmas will see Spurs face top-four candidates Leicester and Liverpool in a four-day period before hosting Crystal Palace at home on Boxing Day.

Then, a trip to Vicarage Road will see Spurs usher in the new year before preparing themselves for that double-header of London derbies.

An away day at the Etihad in mid-February could derail any title or top-four bid should Fonseca surprise fans in his debut season at the club, while a trip to the red side of Manchester three weeks later is another tasty offering before the season enters its final months.

The double-header against the Blues and Arsenal promises to be a hectic few weeks for Spurs

Spurs will get to tick a new Premier League ground off their list in April when they travel to west London to take on Brentford at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Like clashes against Arsenal and Chelsea, the reverse of their double-header against Leicester and Liverpool will be play out at the end of April and start of May, with Spurs hosting the Foxes at White Hart Lane before making the trip up to Merseyside to face Jurgen Klopp’s men the following week.

After being given a tough opening game for the campaign, the fixture gods have granted Spurs a trip to Carrow Road to face Norwich in their final game of the 2021-22 season.
