Premier League preview: Next five tests for Ange Postecoglou's Spurs

With the international break the focus over the coming days, the Premier League hiatus allows some of the Tottenham Hotspur squad to rest and recuperate from the rigours of top-flight football in England.

However, it won’t be long before Ange Postecoglou’s Spurs are plunged right back into the action and here’s a look at the next five games for the north London outfit.

Tottenham v Fulham (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium)

Postecoglou’s side won’t have to worry about travelling far over the coming weeks, with all of their next three games taking place in London, starting with the visit of Fulham.

Spurs are sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League standings and will be confident they can put the Cottagers to the sword.

Fulham have made a solid start to the season and sit in 12th place in the standings with 11 points from their first eight games.

However, with just two wins from their last eight league games on the road, Marco Silva’s side have a big challenge ahead of them at Spurs.

Tottenham are 1.50 to win, 4.50 to draw and 5.75 to lose against the Cottagers.  

Crystal Palace v Tottenham (Selhurst Park)

Staying in the capital, Postecoglou’s side next make the short trip to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace.

Spurs have an impressive record against the Eagles, having won all of their last three league meetings without conceding a single goal.

One has to go back to January 2015 for the last time Palace beat Tottenham in the Premier League.

Spurs are 1.95 to win, 3.50 to draw and 3.75 to lose on the road at Selhurst Park.

Tottenham v Chelsea (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium)

One of the great London rivalries, Spurs "welcome" Chelsea to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with points and bragging rights at stake.

The Blues have made a stuttering start to the season, but seem to be finding their feet under new boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Three wins on the bounce in all competitions before the international break has seen optimism grow at Stamford Bridge and this game will be a good acid test for both sides.

Wolverhampton v Tottenham (Molineux)

Optimism has also been growing at Wolves after they stunned champions Manchester City with a 2-1 win over Pep Guardiola’s side before the international break.

Backed up with a solid 1-1 draw with Aston Villa, Postecoglou will be taking nothing for granted when his side head to the West Midlands to face Wolves next month.

With one win for Spurs in their last four visits in all competitions to Molineux, this will be another interesting test for Aussie tactician Postecoglou.

Tottenham v Aston Villa (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium)

There’s more West Midlands opposition awaiting Spurs in the last game of this five-match block following the international break.

Villa have gone from a side battling relegation to a European outfit under manager Unai Emery and the former Arsenal boss would like nothing more than to take points off Spurs.

The Villans did the double over Spurs in the league last season, so the Lilywhites will be determined to end that losing run when they meet in north London.
