Tottenham, who is aiming to recapture 4th place, will play Arsenal and North London derby at an important road.
Tottenham will play the 20th round home game against Arsenal in the ‘2022-23 English Premier League’ at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the 16th at 1:30 am (Korean time).
Tottenham, who played 18 matches, is running 5th in the league with 10 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses (33 points). Tottenham ran in 4th place before the World Cup break, but after the league resumed, it was in a situation where it fell to 5th place after being pushed by Manchester United, who had come up terribly.
