Mauricio Pochettino takes charge of his first Premier League match as manager of Tottenham with a tricky London derby against West Ham United at Upton Park on August 16. A month later, on September 27, Spurs take on fierce local rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the first north London derby of the 2014/15 campaign.
Opening three fixtures:
West Ham v Tottenham - August 16
Tottenham v QPR - August 23
Tottenham v Liverpool - August 30
Pochettino will go head-to-head with his former employers, Southampton, on October 4, while a fortnight later Spurs take on last season’s Premier League champions Manchester City. This year’s Boxing Day match sees Tottenham make the visit to the King Power Stadium to face newly-promoted Leicester City.
Two days later they welcome Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United to White Hart Lane, before hosting Chelsea on New Year’s Day.
Arsenal come to White Hart Lane
On February 7, Tottenham welcome the Gunners back to the Lane, before facing last season’s Premier League runners-up Liverpool just three days later at Anfield.
Tottenham will be aiming to secure a top-four finish next term - but their difficult run-in could once again scupper their hopes of securing Champions League football. First, on May 2, they host Manchester City, before visiting Stoke City a week later. A home match against Hull City on May 16 looks to be their easiest fixture of the run-in, before Spurs end their campaign against Everton at Goodison Park.
