Sunderland vs. Tottenham: Premier League – Match Preview

Tottenham will look to extend their impressive form away at a struggling Sunderland on Tuesday evening.

Sunderland were poor away at West Brom last time out, losing 2-0 at the Hawthorns.

Well taken goals from Darren Fletcher and Chris Brunt secured another win for the hosts, leaving Sunderland bottom of the pack.

Tottenham produced an amazing recovery to beat Wycombe in the FA Cup, recovering from 2-0 and 3-2 down to avoid a huge shock.

Last time out in the league they recovered from two goals down to earn a vital point away at Manchester City.
