The busiest time of the football calendar is right around the corner with clubs gearing up for the gruelling fixture rush over the festive period.
With teams usually playing every three days – and sometimes every two days – the winter stretch plays a critical role in shaping a side’s outlook for the rest of the campaign.
Tottenham have often endured a full-on Christmas given their commitment in respective domestic and European competitions alongside the Premier League schedule, and this year is no different.
Antonio Conte’s men have been dealt one of the Premier League’s toughest hands this season, with the Italian’s side set to play 10 games in a one-month stretch.
Along the eight standard Premier League fixtures, Spurs have one more Europa Conference League group game to negotiate as well as a Carabao Cup quarter-final clash against West Ham.
Spurs kick off the intense run with three games on the bounce at home at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, before travelling for league games against Brighton and Leicester.
Another three games at home then ensue, including an encounter against high-flyers Liverpool, before trips to Southampton and Watford round out the hectic run of fixtures.
Here is a list of every fixture Spurs will be set to play over the festive period.

This time of the season is definitive and will usually make or break teams. There are a lot of games in a short space of time, so it puts pressure on managers to use the full depth of their squads to avoid injury issues down the line.
