Premier League fixtures: Revenge on Tottenham's early agenda
Tottenham may be out for revenge when they start the 2017-18 Premier League season at Newcastle United before Chelsea are entertained as the first visitors to their temporary Wembley home.
Tottenham, who are in the process of building a new stadium, won just one of the four European games they played at the national stadium last season and were also beaten by Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals.
They will hope to avenge that result in the second week of the season and strike an early blow in the title race having finished seven points behind Chelsea last campaign, but not before visiting a Newcastle side that handed them a high-profile 5-1 humiliation on the final day of 2015-16 when already relegated to ensure Spurs finished below arch-rivals Arsenal.
Key to Tottenham's title hopes will be a five-week spell starting on October 21, which sees Spurs take on Liverpool, Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Arsenal.
A busy December includes a home match versus Manchester City, and the return fixture with United at Wembley on January 31 is followed by a trip to Liverpool and the second north London derby.
Tottenham's visit to Stoke City is sandwiched by games against Chelsea and City in a potentially pivotal period, but the run-in crucially softens in the final four fixtures as Spurs seek a maiden Premier League title.
Please note: Burnley (H) Aug 26 is the same day as the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final and will need to be rescheduled (1/2)-- Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) June 14, 2017
