A poor performance by Spurs at Liverpool, right from kick off they looked like a team lacking belief and, if I'm honest, a team lacking a game plan. The Tottenham fans will expect something better against Sunderland, and if our players put in an honest shift they should get it. Adebayor is available, Chiriches and Paulinho are back in contention, Soldado and Vertonghen out but I'm not so sure their absence will make any difference. If Sherwood is not already a dead man walking (and lets be honest he is), anything but a win against the Mackems will only make his impending departure more certain.
Sunderland are on a bad run, West Ham probably drove the final nail in the coffin earlier this week. Even if they get a win against Spurs they have a fixture list from hell in the final weeks of the season. Saying that, they have every motivation to win while Spurs are playing for pride only.
