Spurs have slipped to seventh in the Premier League after back-to-back 3-0 defeats to Crystal Palace and Chelsea.
Nuno Espírito Santo’s side had won their opening three games, including an opening-day victory against champions Man City – although they only managed three goals in that run.
Key to getting Spurs scoring will be Harry Kane, who is still goalless in the league. While £40m summer-signing Cristian Romero will look to shore things up at the back.
We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Spurs – from their upcoming league fixtures, to the latest football betting odds for the club this term.
Spurs’ next Premier League fixture
Spurs next game is against Arsenal at the Emirates this Sunday in the north London derby, and they will be desperate for a win after last weekend’s deflating defeat to Chelsea.
The good news for the Lilywhites is that they have lost just one of their last five league games against their biggest rivals – although that was a 2-1 defeat in this fixture last season.
The Gunners started the season with three defeats and no goals scored, but consecutive wins over Norwich and Burnley mean they can go level on points with Spurs with a win.
What are the odds that Spurs win the next game?
Arsenal are slight favourites to win the north London derby at 11/8, with Spurs at 11/5. The odds are 9/4 on a third draw in six league meetings between the two.
Both teams have struggled for goals so far, with Spurs scoring three to Arsenal’s two. It’s 13/2 on total match goals under 0.5, while Arsenal are at 9/5 to keep a third clean sheet on the bounce.
Who are Spurs’ key players?
Harry Kane is still looking for his first goal of the season for Spurs, although he did bag a brace against Paços de Ferreira in the Europa Conference League. You can back Kane to score a record 12th goal in north London derbies at 29/20, while he’s 4/1 to strike first.
Meanwhile, strike partner Son Heung-min, who has bagged two of Spurs three league goals, is 5/1 to score first, as he did on both those occasions. Or, if you fancy a derby-debut goal for Cristiano Romero, it’s 18/1.
Latest Spurs team news
Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn are still doubtful, after picking up knocks against Rennes in Europe. Japhet Tanganga is available again after suspension.
Odds on Spurs to finish top four?
A top-four finish is looking like a tough ask for Spurs, who have moved out to 11/2. Perhaps a more realistic ambition is to improve on last season’s seventh-place finish and make the top six – and that’s now 5/6.

Who is the Spurs manager?
Former Wolves’ manager Nuno Espírito Santo arrived at Spurs in the summer, after the departure of Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese guided Wolves to promotion and successive seventh-place finishes in his time at Molineux, who he joined from Porto.
Where do Spurs play?
Spurs moved to the 60,000-seater Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2019. The ground is on the site of the old White Hart Lane in the London borough of Haringey. In 2021, it will also host Anthony Joshua’s world title fight with Oleksandr Usyk and two NFL games.
