The first reunion with Champions League final winners Liverpool comes at Anfield on October 26 – with the return fixture January 11.

Fellow London rivals Chelsea face a festive debut at the new ground four days before Christmas while Tottenham travel to Stamford Bridge on February 22.

That first clash with the Blues is the only really tough test in a festive schedule which could have Tottenham fans singing at Christmas.

Other than Chelsea, Tottenham host Burnley and Brighton around Christmas with trips to Wolves, Norwich and Southampton in a run in which Pochettino will be targeting close to maximum points.

Tottenham’s 2018-19 campaign was a mixed affair on and off the pitch.

Spurs were expected to have been playing at their new home during the early part of the season but constant delays saw the club eventually move in April – winning 2-0 against Crystal Palace on their house-warming.

On the pitch, Spurs finished fourth in the Premier League – despite losing 13 games. 

Having ended the season as beaten finalists in the Champions League, Spurs supporters will hope their side can push on domestically too and challenge for the title.
