A look at how Spurs’ next five league games compare to their Premier League top four rivals Arsenal, Chelsea and Man United

Tottenham returned to winning ways at the weekend with a 1-0 victory over Brighton. A Harry Kane goal was the difference between the two sides in what was a cagey affair at the Amex Stadium.

The result leaves Antonio Conte’s side just four points off Arsenal, who sit top of the Premier League table. In second are Manchester City, and Conte will be hoping the Lilywhites can bridge the gap between now and the winter break.

Here, football.london take a look at Spurs’ next five league fixtures and compare them to Arsenal, Man United and Chelsea.

Everton (H) – October 15

A few weeks ago, this may have had home win written all over it, but Frank Lampard’s Everton are quietly going about their business this season.

However, Lampard didn’t enjoy his last visit to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with Spurs running riot in a 5-0 win over Everton in March.

Manchester United (A) – October 19

The Red Devils have bounced back from their poor start to the season and look to be genuine top four contenders. United have already recorded wins against Liverpool and table-topping Arsenal this term, and they’ll be looking to add Spurs to their list.

Cristiano Ronaldo bagged a hat-trick in United’s 3-2 win over Spurs at Old Trafford in March.

Newcastle (H) – October 23

Eddie Howe’s side have only lost one game so far, with many tipping the Magpies to have an impressive campaign due to the backing Howe received in the transfer market.

Spurs were utterly dominant in a 5-1 win over the Magpies in April, however.

Bournemouth (A) – October 30

The Cherries are proving to be no pushovers under interim boss Gary O’Neil, with the Dorset club unbeaten in five games since Scott Parker was sacked at the end of August.

Bournemouth have only lost two of their nine league games and those loses were to Arsenal and Liverpool.

A trip to the Vitality Stadium at the end of October will be Tottenham’s first there in over two years, where they last drew 0-0 while failing to register a shot on target.

Liverpool (H) – November 6

A game against Liverpool is never easy, but Jurgen Klopp’s side are failing to hit the heights they have shown in previous campaigns.

The Reds have won just twice this season and have dropped points to the likes of Fulham, Crystal Palace and Everton.

Last season’s clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ended in a thrilling 2-2 draw.

Arsenal’s next five fixtures:

Leeds (A) – October 16

Southampton (A) – October 23
