Fulham are set for a return to Wembley – this time to face Tottenham in the Premier League.

The Whites are back in the big time following their recent play-off triumph against Aston Villa at the national stadium and will be at home to Crystal Palace on the opening day of the top-flight season.

Palace will visit Craven Cottage on the weekend of 11-12 August, when Chelsea will begin their season away to Huddersfield.

And as Tottenham’s new stadium will not be ready for their first home game of the season, against the Whites the following weekend, the match will take place at Wembley, where Spurs played home games last term.
