Sunderland: Tottenham Hotspur pursued their Premier League revival by coming from behind to win 2-1 away to bottom club Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

A 50th-minute own goal from Sunderland captain John O'Shea settled the game, after Adam Johnson's first-half opener was swiftly cancelled out by Spurs' Brazil midfielder Paulinho.

Spurs went four games without a win last month, including a sobering 6-0 thrashing at Manchester City, but having also come from behind to win 2-1 at Fulham in mid-week, they are now moving in the right direction.
