The Barclay's Premier League released the schedule of matches for the 2015-16 season today, and it's a big match right out of the gate for Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs will head to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in the first week of the season, Saturday, August 8.

Old Trafford has been remarkably kind to Tottenham the past few years. Spurs have won at United's stadium in two of the past three seasons, and is 2-1-3 against United since 2012, after over a decade without a win. Still, a trip to Old Trafford is never easy, and Louis Van Gaal's side are expected to be very active in the transfer window this summer. The fixture could take on an extra dimension if the much-discussed transfer of Hugo Lloris to the Red Devils comes to fruition.

November will be a fun month for Tottenham as they play three consecutive London derbies: they open with a North London derby against Arsenal at the Emirates on November 7, and follow it with consecutive home derbies against West Ham and Chelsea on November 21 and 28.

The Christmas fixture crunch should also be a bit of a relief for Tottenham. Spurs avoid all of the big clubs in December and January, their hardest fixtures being probably trips to Southampton and Everton.
