Tottenham Hotspur have enjoyed a decent start to their Premier League campaign and currently occupy 6th position in the table following 10 wins, 4 draws and 7 defeats from their opening 21 fixtures, a record that leaves them just 3 points behind Manchester United in 4th and the final Champions League qualification position. Spurs come into tomorrows game on a good run of form that has seen them win 3 of their last 5 matches in the Premier League, although it was a very disappointing result last weekend when they were defeated 2-1 away to London-rivals Crystal Palace, a result which brought an end to a 6 game unbeaten run in the league.
Sunderland are the visitors to White Hart Lane on Saturday and its been a tough start to the season for the Black Cats with 3 wins, 11 draws and 7 defeats from their opening 21 matches, a poor run of results that leaves them in 16th position in the Premier League, just 1 point and 2 places above the relegation zone. Unsurprisingly Sunderland haven't been in the greatest form in recent matches, having picked up just 1 point in their last 4 games, which includes another defeat last time out when they lost 1-0 at home to Liverpool, a result that extended their winless run to 4 games.
Tottenham Hotspur are unbeaten in their last 5 home matches in the Premier League, which includes an impressive 5-3 victory over league leaders Chelsea in their last game at White Hart Lane, and the home side will come into this game as strong favourites to secure another 3 points when taking on a struggling Sunderland.
