Tottenham Hotspur have made a decent start following the resumption of the Premier League, with four points gained from games against Manchester United and West Ham.
While Tottenham were not particularly impressive going forward in either match, there was a considerable improvement in the team’s defending when compared to how they were faring prior to the suspension of the footballing calendar.
Jose Mourinho has stuck with more or less the same team for both matches with the Spurs boss using the least amount of substitutes (just five in two matches) of any team since the restart.
However, one would presume that he would have to rotate his squad a lot more over the next few weeks with Spurs having a busy run of fixtures coming up.
Tottenham will have had a nine-day break following their 2-0 win over West Ham before the take the field against Sheffield United on Thursday.
However, Spurs will have four matches in eleven days starting with the clash against the Blades, with the run ending in the all-important North London derby against Arsenal.
Here’s is the confirmed TV schedule for Tottenham’s next four games (as relayed by Radio Times):
Thursday 2nd July- Sheffield United v Tottenham (Sky Sports, 6pm)
Monday 6th July – Tottenham v Everton (Sky Sports, 8pm)
Thursday 9th July – Bournemouth v Tottenham (Sky Sports/Pick TV FREE TO AIR, 6pm)
Sunday 12th July – Tottenham v Arsenal (Sky Sports, 4.30pm)
After these run of games, Spurs will travel to Newcastle United four days later, followed quickly by a home game against Leicester City, before ending their season at Selhurst Park on July 26th.
The timings of Tottenham’s final three matches are yet to be finalised.
Spurs Web Opinion
I believe all of our next four matches are winnable. Sheffield United, Everton and Bournemouth have not started particularly well since the break and nine points in those games will set us up nicely going into the North London derby.
We have a difficult end to the season and so, we need to win our next four games to give ourselves the best shot of finishing in the top four.
