Chelsea’s next six Premier League fixtures compared to Arsenal, Man United and Tottenham
Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham have some tough upcoming Premier League fixtures and will hope to get maximum points, with their rivals already dropping points
Tottenham continued their solid start to the season, with a 2-1 win against Fulham on Saturday. Antonio Conte’s side have won four and drawn two of their opening matches, leaving them level on points with Man City.
Man United and Arsenal faced off on Sunday afternoon with the former coming out on top in a 3-1 victory. That was the Red Devils’ fourth straight victory, after losing their opening two matches.
Sunday’s match was Arsenal’s first defeat of the season, but Mikel Arteta’s side are still top of the league. After going 1-0 down to West Ham at the weekend, Chelsea turned it around to win 2-1, though there was a hugely controversial moment which denied David Moyes’ side a point at the death.
So Tottenham’s Premier League rivals are already dropping points and the fixtures continue to come thick and fast, with European football returning this week. football.london take a look at Spurs’ next six league fixtures and compare them to Arsenal, Man United and Chelsea.
Tottenham’s next six fixtures:
Man City (A) – September 10
Pep Guardiola’s side dropped points for the second time of the season at the weekend, with their 1-1 draw against Aston Villa. City now sit level in points with Spurs.
Spurs did the double over Guardiola’s side last season, which will give them some added confidence for their trip to the Etihad Stadium. However with Erling Haaland making the move to the Manchester club, it won’t be an easy battle.
Leicester (H) – September 17
On paper, this should be one of the easier matches for Tottenham, with Leicester currently sitting bottom of the league. Brendan Rodgers side are yet to win a game this season and their performances have been very poor.
Arsenal (A) – October 1
The North London Derby can never be predicted, with form going out the window when the Lilywhites face Arsenal. Arteta’s side started well before dropping their first points of the season against Man United.
Tottenham won’t want a repeat of their last trip to the Emirates Stadium, which involved a woeful performance and poor result and as ever, it will be a tough battle.
Brighton (A) – October 8
Brighton have also had a solid start to the season, currently sitting just a point behind Spurs after their opening six matches. Graham Potter’s side have already beaten Man United and West Ham this season already, and the trip down South won’t be easy for the Lilywhites.
Everton (H) – October 15
Everton are another team who are yet to win a game this season after they survived relegation in the 2021/22 campaign. Frank Lampard’s side lost just 1-0 to Chelsea and drew to Liverpool at the weekend, but it will be a match Conte hopes his side can win.
Man United (A) – October 19
Man United had a poor first couple of games. But since their 4-0 defeat to Brentford, they seem to have turned over a new leaf. United have won four matches in a row following that defeat, including their latest victory against Arsenal.
A trip to Old Trafford is never easy for Tottenham and it looks as though their mid-week tie in October will be no different.

Everton (H) – September 11
