Tottenham have a much kinder fixture list in the weeks following their international break compared to their North London rivals Arsenal.
Spurs thrashed Leicester 6-2 on Saturday to maintain their unbeaten record in the Premier League heading into the international break.
Antonio Conte’s men not only put their disappointing result against Sporting Lisbon behind them with their win over the Foxes but there was also the added bonus of Son Heung-min coming back into form with a brilliant second-half hattrick.
The result means that Spurs are now level on points with Manchester City and sit just a point behind League leaders Arsenal.
All eyes will be on the North London derby at the Emirates on October 1 but the Gunners also face other tricky games in the subsequent weeks, including away trips to both Chelsea and Liverpool.
Meanwhile, City have an extremely favourable fixture list following the international break as Pep Guardiola’s men are set to play four of their next six matches at home.
Here’s how Tottenham’s fixture list compares with City’s and Arsenal’s.
Spurs’ next six fixtures:
Arsenal (A) – October 1
Brighton (A) – October 9
Everton (H) – October 15
Man United (A) – October 19

Spurs Web Opinion
City could quite easily build a six-point lead over us and Arsenal as I do not see them dropping points in any of those six games apart from their trip to Anfield.
Arsenal have started the season very well but how they do in the next six games will be the real indicator of how far they have progressed.
