Tottenham September 2021 Fixtures Preview
Tottenham Hotspur headed into the international window as the only Premier League side to have won all three inaugural league fixtures in 2021/22, and you can use this Unibet sign up offer to bet on the Spurs’ results in September, which are relatively easy apart from a tough clash against London rivals Chelsea.
A hat-trick of narrow 1-0 victories, which includes a hard-fought triumph over reigning champions Manchester City on the opening weekend, has seen Nuno Espirito Santo's adventure get off to a flying start.
Confidence is bursting at the seams following a 100% start to their Premier League campaign. However, Spurs need to be more clinical in the front third moving forward if they are to mount a serious title challenge.
Tottenham have converted just three of their 17 attempts on target in the top-flight this term, which requires an improvement.
With Harry Kane's well-documented 'August jinx' now behind, the Londoners' paltry goalscoring return so far should go up already in September.
Crystal Palace (Premier League) - September 11
Tottenham and Crystal Palace will face-off against each other at Selhurst Park in an all-London Premier League match-up once the players return from the international break.
After managing just a single point from their opening three league games, Patrick Vieira has already come under scrutiny as the Eagles face another seemingly underwhelming campaign.
After winning four of their last six encounters against Palace away from home, a trip across the capital should provide Spurs with a golden opportunity to maintain their momentum.
Rennes (Europa Conference League) - September 16
After pulling off a second-leg comeback to oust Portuguese outfit Pacos Ferreira, Tottenham will launch their Europa Conference League campaign at the Roazhon Park.
Spurs have never met Rennes before. Given their Premier League ambitions, Espirito Santo is likely to make some squad rotations for his side's trip to France.
The Ligue 1 side lost both last season's Champions League games against Tottenham's cross-town rivals Chelsea and will be desperate to leave a better impression this time around.
Chelsea (Premier League) - September 19
A mouth-watering showdown against Chelsea on home turf will come only three days after Tottenham's European travel.
Since claiming a 3-1 victory in November 2018, Spurs have gone winless in their subsequent five Premier League matches against the reigning Champions League holders.
A return of one draw and four defeats from that five-game sequence suggests Espirito Santo's side will have a mountain to climb to come out on top.
Chelsea’s visit should provide some clarity regarding Tottenham’s capability of retaining the top spot.
Wolverhampton (Carabao Cup) - September 22
Espirito Santo has already defeated his former employers this season, as Tottenham eked out a narrow 1-0 Premier League win at Molineux on Matchday 2.
Spurs will be looking to emulate that performance when the two sides lock horns in the Carabao Cup at the same venue.
Wolves' horrendous start to the season, coupled with a return of four defeats from their last five home clashes against the Londoners, gives the visitors plenty of reason to hope for another triumphant evening.
Arsenal (Premier League) - September 26
Tottenham's third London derby in September pits them against underperforming Arsenal at the Emirates in late September.
Despite making heavy investments in the transfer window, the Gunners have dominated the Arsenal news headlines for all the wrong reasons, having lost all three Premier League outings this term by an aggregate score of 9-0.
Spurs could be the team to hammer the final nail in Mikel Arteta's coffin, though it would require them to defy their 'Emirates hoodoo,' having failed to win any of their last ten top-flight fixtures here (D4, L6).
Mura (Europa Conference League) - September 30
A congested September schedule ends with a manageable Europa Conference League against Slovenian minnows Mura at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Odds-on favourites to outplay the Slovenians, Tottenham could use this low-profile European contest as a warm-up fixture ahead of their Premier League clash against Aston Villa on October 3.
Though winning Europe's third-tier competition might not be atop Spurs' list of priorities, the Premier League heavyweights should have another day in the office here.
