An intimate look at the Tottenham Hotspur 2020/21 Premier League season fixture list
As confirmed by the Premier League, Tottenham Hotspur will kick off their 2020/21 domestic campaign at home against Everton on 12 September.
The match-up will see two managers taking stock of their first full season at their respective clubs. Jose Mourinho ensured Spurs qualified for Europe on the last day of last season. He will now attempt to go one better and ensure we return to where we belong – the top table of European football.
The first major clash of the season will see us face Manchester United on 3 October at Old Trafford. A win will set the tone for the rest of the season as Spurs look to bounce back after a disappointing season.
The trip to the Theatre of Dreams remains our most challenging fixture for the first two months. Spurs have been granted a fairly comfortable start that the club should look to take advantage of.
We end our campaign away to Leicester City on 23 May 2021. The last home game of the season will see us play Aston Villa on 15 May.
The North London Derby
Spurs face off against arch-rivals Arsenal after finishing above them yet again last season. We face the Gunners in the first North London Derby of the league campaign at home on 5 December.
The return leg will be played at the Emirates on 13 March. We took four points off Mikel Arteta’s side last season. London is White and we can hopefully keep it going.
Other London derbies
Spurs are amongst six Premier League clubs from London. This represents a regular competition for local pride.
Mourinho will return to Stamford Bridge on 28 November to face Frank Lampard’s Chelsea. Jose is yet to beat Lampard as a manager and will seek to put that record straight. The return fixture will be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 3 February.
The Spurs boss will face yet another one of his former players in the manager’s hot seat when we face Scott Parker’s Fulham. We face the Cottagers at home on 28 December before traveling to Craven Cottage on 24 April.
Meanwhile, we play West Ham United at home on 17 October and away on 20 February. Crystal Palace will welcome us to Selhurst Park on 12 December before we return the favour on 6 March.
The Merseyside duo
Tottenham will face defending champions Liverpool at Anfield on 16 December before welcoming them to London a month later on 27 January.
The Reds did a double over us last season. Facing them will show us how far we have come as a team since our last campaign. Everton visit Spurs on the opening day of the season. We travel to the reverse fixture at Goodison park on 17 April.
The Manchester giants
Spurs face off against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at home on 21 November. The return tie at the Etihad is penned in for 13 February.
The Sky Blues have shown they can be taken down in recent months, hopefully, we can do the same this time around.
Mourinho faces off against his former side Manchester United at Old Trafford in our first big game of the season on 3 October. We welcome United back to North London on 10 April.
A troubling December
Spurs face a difficult December as the fixtures pile up during the festive season. We start off the month with the North London Derby at home on the 5th. This is followed by consecutive trips to Palace on 12th and Liverpool on the 16th.
We welcome Leicester City three days later before traveling to the Molineux on the 26th. Spurs finally cap off the year by facing Fulham at home on the 28th at home.
These fixtures are sandwiched between a trip to Chelsea in November and a visit of Leeds United after New Years’ day. Add to it two Europa League clashes and a potential Carabao Cup match-up and we are looking at a heavy schedule. (h/t Tottenham Hotspur)
From the looks of it, December could make or break our season.
We enter the Europa League in the second qualifying round on 17 September. Provided we progress, we are looking at a hectic set of mid-season games.
Our Europa League involvement thankfully sees us exempt from the second round of the Carabao Cup. Our potential post Europa match-ups involve us facing off against Burnley (24 October), Brighton & Hove Albion (31 October), West Bromwich Albion (7 November), Chelsea (28 November), Arsenal (5 December), Crystal Palace (12 November).

It will be a test of Mourinho’s squad management.
