Tottenham Facing Tough December Schedule Ahead of Key Clashes

Tottenham Hotspur are bracing for a challenging December as they navigate a packed fixture list in the Premier League. The north London side will face the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, and local rivals Arsenal in the coming months, showcasing the intensity of their upcoming schedule.

Kicking off the busy period, Spurs will travel to Bournemouth on 3rd December, followed by a home clash against Chelsea on 7th December. They will then visit Southampton on 14th December and welcome Liverpool to their stadium on 21st December, before facing Nottingham Forest away on Boxing Day and Wolves at home on 29th December.

The first north London derby of the season is set for early September, with Tottenham welcoming Arsenal to their ground. The return fixture at the Emirates Stadium is scheduled for 14th January, with a trip to Newcastle just 10 days prior.

Tottenham enjoyed a strong start to the previous Premier League campaign, going unbeaten in their first 10 games under manager Ange Postecoglou. This form saw them top the league table in November with 26 points from 30 available. Although their performance dipped later in the season, they managed to secure a fifth-place finish, earning a spot in the Europa League for the current term.

“Determined to go one better this season, Tottenham will be aiming to secure a coveted top-four finish and secure Champions League qualification. The north London side will be hoping to maintain their early-season momentum and navigate the upcoming December fixtures successfully to keep their aspirations alive.”

In an effort to address concerns over congested fixture schedules, the Premier League has made arrangements to provide more rest time for clubs during the festive period. No team will play within 60 hours of another match, and there will be no fixture on 24th December. Additionally, the mid-season break has been removed from the calendar to allow for an earlier start to the Premier League season.

talkSPORT will continue to be the home of Premier League football on the radio, with more than 120 top-flight commentaries set to be broadcast across their network in the 2024/25 season, including the opening weekend’s matches between Manchester United and Fulham, as well as Ipswich and Liverpool.
