Fixture list shows a storm ahead for confident Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur are flying, and it's just as well ahead of a potentially tricky run-in.

If any Tottenham fan thought the club were home and hosed after beating Arsenal they should think again, because there could still be some twists and turns yet to come this season.

While Spurs sit in third, two points ahead of Chelsea and seven in front of Arsenal, there are 10 games left to go and plenty of points to play for.

Tottenham are full of confidence right now and with good reason, they host Inter Milan later this week in a Europa League glamour tie worthy of the Champions League.

Right after this they face Liverpool at Anfield, a match they will be determined not to lose momentum in, but it won't be easy with Luis Suarez in fine form in front of a home crowd.

After that they travel to Italy to face Inter, then host Fulham at home in a tie they will firmly expect to win.

Once that's past, we will be at March 30th, which will signal a run of fixtures where it really gets tough for Spurs.

Consecutively they face Swansea (a), Everton (h), Chelsea (a) and Manchester City (h).

Those four fixtures are the big danger for Spurs, and while they will hope to win their home games, it's conceivable to imagine them dropping points in each of them.

Considering that if they beat Inter, there could be Europa League quarter-final fixtures in the mix during that period too, the month of April is bound to be a tricky one for Andre Villas-Boas side.

The good news is that if they come through these relatively unscathed and with an advantage over Arsenal, with the exception of an awkward trip to the Britannia Stadium, their final four fixtures appear far more forgiving.

Wigan (a), Southampton (h), Stoke (a) and Sunderland (h).

Compare this to Arsenal who in their final four fixtures face Manchester United (h), Newcastle (a) and in between relegation scrappers Wigan (h) and QPR (a) it certainly looks favourable come May for Spurs.

Now they just need to get there in good shape.

What do you think? Can Tottenham negotiate their tricky April without losing their advantage?
