We kick-off our 2010-11 Barclays Premier League campaign with a cracker against Manchester City at White Hart Lane.

City are scheduled to travel to the Lane on Saturday, August 14.

The fixture will immediately evoke happy memories of the last time we met on May 5 - the night we clinched fourth place last season with a 1-0 win at Eastlands.

We then face the tough trip to Stoke City the following weekend, August 21, and complete the month at home to Wigan on August 28.

Remember, this is very much a provisional fixture list and all fixtures are subject to change.

It will be a month to relish as we step into Champions League action for the first time with our play-off dates scheduled for August 17/18 and August 24/25.
