Tottenham announced their fixture list for the 2019/20 season and some supporters took to social media to share their delight that Spurs’ opening game is at home for the first time since 2010.
Many are happy with the first North London derby coming in August while others are pleased with the teams’ run-in – Arsenal are the only top-six side Spurs will face in April and May.
Arsenal away so early on! Wow
