Postecoglou has given Tottenham a significant advantage over Manchester City and Arsenal for Premier League return.

Tottenham Hotspur will not play Fulham in the Premier League until next Monday, according to Ange Postecoglou.

Tottenham Hotspur are expected to enjoy a significant lead over their Premier League rivals when domestic football resumes this weekend following the October international break. Spurs are unbeaten in the Premier League this season, with new manager Ange Postecoglou leading them to six victories from a possible eight, putting them atop the table with 20 points.

They are joined at the top of the Premier League by north London rivals Arsenal, with reigning champions Manchester City and Liverpool taking the remaining two slots in the top four. Following the pragmatic approach of the club’s last two managers, Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho, Postecoglou‘s attacking style of play at Spurs has been a breath of new air for supporters.

Spurs have enjoyed a beneficial fixture schedule to begin the season, with games against all three promoted teams as well as Bournemouth, who presently occupy the bottom four slots in the table. However, the Lilywhites have also faced Liverpool, Manchester United, and Arsenal and come away with seven points, dispelling the notion that the start has been simple.

Last-gasp goals against Liverpool and Sheffield United demonstrate that luck has been on Postecoglou‘s side, but it is also a sign of perseverance, with the group already picking up eight points from losing positions this season. Spurs’ strong start to the season has been appreciated elsewhere, with Destiny Udogie earning his first senior Italy call-up.

Prior to the most recent international break, Tottenham defeated Luton Town despite being down to ten men for the whole second half. That game was the first of the weekend, so Spurs might have set the pace at the top, but now that they have returned from a two-week break, they face the reverse challenge, which could prove to be an advantage.

The Premier League returns this Saturday lunchtime with Liverpool hosting Everton in a Merseyside Derby, followed by Manchester City hosting Brighton at 3pm, and another derby concludes the day at Stamford Bridge with Chelsea hosting Arsenal. Meanwhile, Tottenham will play Fulham on Monday night, and while fans will have to wait an additional few days to see their team in action, it will likely come as a welcome rest for Spurs’ foreign stars.

Cristian Romero and Son Heung-min, for example, will have had to travel a long distance to represent Argentina and South Korea, respectively. Thankfully, the Spurs captain was rested for his team’s match against Tunisia after suffering from a groyne ailment for much of the season.


The September international break had a lasting impact on Liverpool‘s Alexis MacAllister and Chelsea midfielder Moises Caicedo, who both returned from South America, and the extra 48 hours might become crucial if any fitness worries arise when the many arrivals return at Hotspur Way.

It should be remembered, though, that Spurs begin the following gameweek with a trip to Crystal Palace on Friday night, just four days after their London Derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
