That just proved how you finish is more important than how you start, but nonetheless at this early stage it is interesting to look at the start of the season both clubs face.

Tottenham: Everton (A) - Draw, Crystal Palace (H) - Win, Liverpool (H) - Draw, Stoke (A) - Win, Sunderland (H) - Win, Middlesbrough (A) - Win.
