Sunderland 1-2 Tottenham: Spurs come from behind to continue revival

Sunderland Stadium of Light

Tottenham beat Sunderland 2-1 at the Stadium of Light this evening.

Tottenham Hotspur came from behind in today's late kick-off to beat Sunderland 2-1.

The Black Cats went ahead in the 37th minute when Andrew Johnson took advantage of a Hugo Lloris mistake to score.

But Andre Villas-Boas's men hit back through Paulinho before John O'Shea continued the tradition of the day to put through his own net.

In a match full of incidents, the recalled Jermain Defoe twice hit the woodwork while Gus Poyet's men had a penalty claim rejected.

The result sees Spurs climb up to sixth in the Premier League, while Sunderland remain bottom.
