Tottenham Hotspur face a nightmare fixture pile up over the next few months due to the shortened nature of the season with the club currently competing for silverware on all four fronts.
After Tottenham’s clash against Fulham which was set to be played a fortnight ago was called off due to a number positive COVID-19 tests in the Cottagers camp, Jose Mourinho remarked last Friday it will be a disaster for his side if the fixture against Aston Villa was also postponed.
Thankfully for Spurs, even though the clash against Villa could not go ahead due to positive cases, their match against Fulham was played last night and ended in a 1-1 draw
However, Football.London claim that not only do the authorities need to find a gap in the calendar for the game at Villa Park, Spurs also have their away trip against Fulham to fit in, which was originally set to be played the during the weekend of the Carabao Cup final.
While Spurs do not have a midweek game week commencing Monday, January 18, both Aston Villa and Fulham are set to take on Manchester City and Manchester United respectively on the same Wednesday evening.
The second week of February could potentially be free as the fifth round of the FA Cup is scheduled to be played that mid-week.
However, while Villa have been knocked out of the competition, Spurs and Fulham have made it into the fourth round and could be in action that week.
Another space in the calendar emerges a couple of weeks later in the week commencing Monday, March 1 while there is also a gap in the week leading up to the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, April 25.
Spurs Web Opinion
Tottenham will not want to play just a few days ahead of the Carabao Cup final as that will hardly be ideal preparation for the clash against Man City. However, it seems like they might have to as that is really the only free week in the calendar apart from the first week of March, which is when the Spurs’ trip to Villa Park will likely be scheduled.
