Tottenham 2015/16 Premier League fixtures: Spurs handed trip to Man United

Tottenham will travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on the opening weekend of the Premier League season after the 2015/16 fixtures were released this morning.

Spurs are scheduled to face Louis van Gaal’s side, who finished one place and six points ahead of them last season in the fourth spot, on Saturday August 8 – although the match is likely to be televised live and may be moved.

Tottenham are starting their league campaign with an away game for the fifth year in a row – a sequence that also started with a trip to Old Trafford at the beginning of the 2011/12 season, after their scheduled opener at home against Everton was postponed due to the London riots.

Harry Redknapp’s side lost 3-0 that day, and Mauricio Pochettino’s side were defeated by the same scoreline when they last visited United in March.

Spurs go on to host Stoke before visiting Leicester and then welcoming Everton at White Hart Lane in their first four games.

Pochettino’s outfit are due to play three London derbies in November, taking on Arsenal in the first north London derby at the Emirates before entertaining West Ham and then taking on reigning champions Chelsea at the Lane.

Spurs are at home on Boxing Day, against newly-promoted Norwich, before making the relatively short trip to Watford two days later.
