Tottenham Hotspur are set to host Fulham on the second weekend of the new campaign at Wembley before returning home to N17 on September 15-16

Tottenham Hotspur will start the 2018/19 Premier League season away to Newcastle United, just like they did in the previous campaign.

Spurs will head to St James’ Park on the weekend of August 11-12 and be at ‘home’ to Fulham a week later.

It has now been confirmed by the club they will use Wembley Stadium to entertain the Cottagers on the weekend of August 18-19.

The next home fixture for Tottenham is on the weekend of September 15-16 against Liverpool and it will be the first at their new venue.

A statement on the official club website reads: “Following the release of the fixtures for season 2018/19, we are delighted to announce that we shall play our first home game at our new stadium on the weekend of 15-16 September 2018 against Liverpool.

“As you will note there is a home fixture scheduled for the weekend of 18-19 August 2018 and this match will be played as a home fixture at Wembley Stadium.

“It was always our intention to seek permission to play the first few games away. In discussions with our Coaching staff the preference was to break what would otherwise have been a continuous run of away games with one game at what was effectively our ‘home’ stadium last season.

“We shall be scheduling several events preceding our first Premier League game in the new stadium to check and rehearse various operational aspects. Further details will be released in the coming weeks.”

Other notable early games include West Ham United away on October 20 and Manchester City at home a week later.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men are set to entertain Chelsea on November 24 and travel to the Emirates to take on Arsenal on December 1.

The festive period will see Tottenham visit Everton on December 22 before home clashes with Bournemouth (December 26) and Wolves (December 29) and an away fixture at Cardiff to start 2019 on New Years Day.

Spurs will travel to Chelsea on February 27 and host Arsenal at their new stadium a week later on March 2.

A trip to Liverpool awaits at the end of March on the 30th and Tottenham will visit the champions Man City on April 20 before a home clash with West Ham on April 27.

The Lilywhites will end the campaign at home to Everton on May 12, but all fixtures are subject to change.
