Tottenham Hotspur’s unexpected elimination from the FA Cup means that Antonio Conte’s side can not only offer us players who ‘double’ in Gameweek 29, but also assets who are unaffected by the blanks in Gameweek 30.
For those looking further ahead, Spurs will also have another Double Gameweek to come between now and the end of the season.
And the remaining fixtures themselves are very decent, with eight of their last 12 games of 2021/22 against teams currently ranked 11th or below in the Premier League table.
Spurs’ performances have been a bit Jekyll-and-Hyde in 2022, with five wins and four defeats in the Premier League since the turn of the year (see below). However, they have improved of late, with back-to-back 5-0 and 4-0 wins against Everton and Leeds United respectively.
- Tottenham Hotspur 5-0 Everton
- Leeds United 0-4 Tottenham Hotspur
- Burnley 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur
- Manchester City 2-3 Tottenham Hotspur
- Tottenham Hotspur 0-2 Wolverhampton Wanderers
- Tottenham Hotspur 2-3 Southampton
- Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham Hotspur
