Five Key Matches
v Leicester City (H) on October 30
For much of last season these two were in a battle for the title. This will be their first chance to size each other up in 2016/17.
v Chelsea (A) on November 27
Expect plenty of spice. Eden Hazard’s equaliser last season scuppered Spurs’ title chase and turned into a free-for-all with Tottenham picking up a league record 11 yellow cards.
v Manchester City (A) on January 22
City will hope Pep Guardiola can return them to the top of the heap which will mean knocking off the likes of Spurs who inflicted two losses last season and nudged them for third.
v Arsenal (H) on April 30
As if the North London derby wasn’t emotionally-charged enough. This season they’ll have extra edge after Arsene Wenger’s men pipped the Lilywhites for second.
v Manchester United (H) on May 14
This last home game of the season should be a cracker of a send-off to the 118-year-old White Hart Lane (slated for demolition), especially if both clubs are fighting for honours.
SBS Host Lucy Zelic's Prediction: 6th
After a disappointing final few rounds with the title on the line last term, Tottenham will need to pick themselves up quick smart. In Harry Kane they have a striker that can score bagfuls of goals but Mauricio Pochettino will want more options to avoid any late season slide.
