Tottenham Hotspur were probably deserving of the three points against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in their Premier League clash on Saturday.
The North London club took the lead twice, but on each occasion the Black Cats hit back to eventually earn a 2-2 draw, Harry Kane scoring an own goal eight minutes from full time.
However, on the balance of play, Spurs probably deserved to pick up all three points. Mauricio Pochettino’s side had more possession (62% to 38%), more shots (16 to 7) and more attempts on target (5 to1).
It was a case of two points lost rather than a point gained on the road for Tottenham, for whom Christian Eriksen was on target.
The 22-year-old Denmark international attacking midfielder scored Tottenham’s second goal against Sunderland just three minutes into the second half.
On Monday, the former Ajax star took to Instagram to post the following photo – his 100th on the website - along with the message: ‘Glad to be back on the scoreboard!#picturenumber100 #coys’.
Tottenham will be hoping for a better result on Thursday when they take on Partizan Belgrada in their opening Europa League Group C game. Spurs’ next Premier League match is against West Bromwich Albion at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
