Tottenham Hotspur Fixtures: Postecoglou to begin Spurs reign with London derby

It is a summer of change at Tottenham Hotspur with the appointment of Ange Postecoglou as their new manager. He will be busy making preparations for his first season in English football, and the Australian now knows who he will be facing and when, as the Premier League fixtures have been released.

Tottenham will not have to travel too far on the opening weekend of the season as Brentford will be who they face. They have quite a tricky first few months of the 2023-24 Premier League campaign, but Postecoglou has never been one to shy away from a challenge. He’ll hope to have Harry Kane to call upon, who continues to be linked with a move away.

Every fan of every club is naturally excited when it comes to fixture release day. We all know every team has to play each other home and away, but the order is so, so important. Getting off to a good start is vital, especially for a new manager, whilst it is always advantageous to have a favourable set of fixtures to end the season.

Let us focus on some of the key parts of Tottenham Hotspur’s season, and the fixtures that fall within them.

Tottenham: Some very notable opponents in early part of season

As mentioned, Tottenham will begin with a trip to take on Brentford, but before you know it they’ll be welcoming Manchester United to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium the following weekend. The North London derby with rivals Arsenal comes early on, and entertaining Liverpool isn’t too far away either. Postecoglou won’t have many comfortable games to settle into the job.

Tottenham: Very tough and also winnable Christmas clashes

The month of December begins with the toughest game they’re likely to have all season when travelling to Manchester City. A trip to Brighton & Hove Albion will be anything but easy as well. However, Postecoglou will have many matches he’ll expect to target three points from, including some home games against likely relegation candidates.

Tottenham: Three really difficult games in end of season run-in

It is a bit of a mixed bag for Tottenham when it comes to how they end the season. They’ll be pretty pleased to be facing two of the promoted teams, but on the other hand they’ll count themselves quite unfortunate to also be facing Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool in this period, too. Postecoglou will be hoping their challenge for Europe by this point.
