The next couple of months could be crucial in determining the race for fourth, with Tottenham having some difficult games coming up.

The race for Champions League qualification seems to be heating up, with Spurs seemingly competing for one position with Arsenal, Manchester United and West Ham.

Football.London have now analysed the fixtures all four clubs have coming up for the next two months and it makes for some interesting reading.

Antonio Conte’s men have a tough couple of months coming up, with two London derbies against Arsenal and Chelsea, and an away clash against Manchester City.

In addition, it remains to be seen when Tottenham’s fixtures at Burnely, Leicester and Brighton, which were postponed in December, will be rearranged.

23/01 – Chelsea (A)
09/02 – Southampton (H)
13/02 – Wolves (H)
19/02 – Man City (A)
26/02 – Leeds United (A)

Spurs Web Opinion

Even though Spurs have games in hand over their rivals, they have had relatively easy fixtures since Conte’s arrival. The next two months will represent the true test of how far the Italian has taken this side. If Conte’s men are still in touching distance of fourth by the end of February, Champions League qualification would be well and truly on for the Lilywhites.
