Tottenham Hotspur may have endured Champions League heartache last season after losing the final to fellow Prem side Liverpool, but they will go again next year.

Spurs finished in the top four of the Premier League last season and will, therefore, enter at the group stages, qualifying for pot two.

Some teams can find it difficult to juggle key Premier League fixtures and Champions League matches, often suffering from tiredness or travel fatigue.

So, ideally a team would not want any big Prem matches either side of Champions League games, but who have Spurs got this year?

In truth, Spurs have been handed a decent draw in terms of the group stages this year:

 

Sep 14 – Crystal Palace at home

Sep 17/18 – CL MATCHDAY ONE

Sep 21 – Leicester City away

 

Sep 28 – Southampton at home

Oct 1/2 – CL MATCHDAY TWO

Oct 5 – Brighton away

 

Oct 19 – Watford at home

Oct 22/23 – CL MATCHDAY THREE

Oct 26 – Liverpool away

 

Nov 2 – Everton away

Nov 5/5 – CL MATCHDAY FOUR

Nove 9 – Sheffield United at home

 

Nov 23 – West Ham away

Nov 26/27 – CL MATCHDAY FIVE

Nov 30 – Bournemouth at home

 

Dec 7 – Burnley at home

Dec 10/11 – CL MATCHDAY SIX

Dec 14 – Wolves away

 

Spurs Web Opinion:

I am over the moon with this scheduling for Spurs. Liverpool are the only Prem top six club that Tottenham will have to play either side of a Champions League group stage game. If Spurs strengthen their squad this summer to allow for rotation, hopefully competing in Europe won’t affect them too much with regards to the Prem.
