Spurs will open the 2010/11 Premier League campaign against last season’s Champions League rivals – Manchester City.

Roberto Mancini will bring the Citizens to White Hart Lane to face Harry Redknapp’s side, who famously won at Eastlands last season to secure Champions League football for both clubs in north London.

Stoke (A), Wigan (H), West Brom (A) and Wolves (H) suggests a relatively simple start to the season, although European Cup qualifiers could play their part in squad selection.

Key fixtures to note are the trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on 30th October, with the first north London derby not long after on November 20th at the Emirates.

Liverpool travel to White Hart Lane the following week, while Chelsea make the trip to north London not long after, on the 12th December.

A boxing day trip to Aston Villa could have fourth place ramifications later in the season, while the visit of United on January 15th might have an impact on the title race should Spurs fans dare to dream at such levels at this stage.

Arsenal come to compete the second north London derby on the 26th February, while the trip to Eastlands is once again perilously close to the end of the campaign on April 16th.

A fortnight later, Spurs travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea (April 30th), while a final day clash with Birmingham City could lead to delight or despair at the Lane.

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club – opening five fixtures:

14/08/2010 – Tottenham v Man City

21/08/2010 – Stoke v Tottenham

28/08/2010 – Tottenham v Wigan

11/09/2010 - West Brom v Tottenham

18/09/2010 – Tottenham v Wolves
