Tottenham Hotspur face a trip to Premier League new-boys Crystal Palace on the opening day of the 2013/14 season.

After last season's Champions League qualification near-miss, Andre Villas-Boas will be hoping to go one better next term.

They open the campaign with a trip to Selhurst Park on the 17th August, before facing Swansea City in their first home game. 

You don't have to scan too far down the list to find the fixture everyone looks for - the first north London derby of the season kicks off on the 31st August at the Emirates Stadium.

A tricky November sees Spurs face Everton and Manchester City away, and Manchester United and Newcastle at home all in the space of a month.

On Boxing Day they welcome West Bromwich Albion to White Hart Lane, before travelling up to Old Trafford to face the reigning Premier League champions on New Year's Day.

The month of March could define their season though, with trips to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea and Anfield to take on Liverpool. Sandwiched between the two fixtures is the small matter of the second north London derby at White Hart Lane on the 15th March.

As for the run-in, Spurs fans should be pretty happy. Their final six fixtures see their side take on four teams who finished in the bottom half of the table last term plus West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion. No team in last season's top seven.

The final game of the season will see Spurs welcome Aston Villa to north London on the 11th May - an earlier than usual finish to the campaign due to that summer's World Cup.
