Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +5 FULL-TIME, and Tottenham take the win thanks to a superb second-half turnaround. The away side scored twice in three minutes at the start of the second half thanks to a Carlos Cuellar own goal and a sumptuous finish from Aaron Lennon and help maintain their position in the race for Champions League qualification. Sunderland started both halves brightly but could not maintain that high tempo, although the performances of Stephane Sessegnon and Adam Johnson will give them heart. However, it’s Spurs who take the three points as their good run in the Premier League continues.
90' +2 We're into five minutes of stoppage time at the end of this game.
90' G. Sigurðsson enters the game and replaces G. Bale.
Gareth Bale is booed off by the Sunderland fans as he is replaced by Gylfi Sigurdsson. The Welshman picked up his fifth yellow of the season so misses the game against Reading, with all his bookings due to simulation.
87' Chance! That could have been an equaliser for Sunderland as Johnson's cross is just inches away from Connor Wickham.
84' That's a very dramatic fall from Sandro, who forces a free kick after a tap from Sessegnon. Spurs are starting to wind the clock down now.
83' S. Parker enters the game and replaces A. Lennon.
81' G. Bale gets yellow.
Gareth Bale goes down in the penalty area saying he was challenged unfairly by Craig Gardner. However, the referee disagrees and books the Welshman for diving, meaning he is suspended for the next game.
80' C. Wickham enters the game and replaces S. Larsson.
79' M. Dembélé gets yellow.
That's a really good free kick from Johnson, but Adebayor of all people is there to head clear.
77' Great ball in from Lennon, and there is substitute Titus Bramble to slide the ball away from danger for a corner.
