Match Preview

Van der Vaart still doubtful Rafael van der Vaart remains a major doubt for Tottenham's Barclays Premier League game against Sunderland with a hamstring injury. Midfielder Van der Vaart is still nursing the problem that kept him out of Saturday's 4-2 defeat at Bolton, while defender William Gallas also picked up a knock at the Reebok Stadium and was due to be assessed. Aaron Lennon and Robbie Keane are struggling with respective hamstring and ankle injuries, while captain Ledley King (groin) is still out, and Jermain Defoe, Michael Dawson (both ligament damage), Jamie O'Hara (back) and Jonathan Woodgate (groin) are long-term absentees. Boss Harry Redknapp admitted Chelsea's defeat at Liverpool was bad news for his side's hopes of finishing fourth for a second straight season. The result moved Liverpool level on 15 points with Spurs, who are now five adrift of the top four having taken just one point from their last three league games. Redknapp said: "If we're all realistic, a top-four finish is what you're looking for and, if you're doing that, you want Liverpool out the way. "I'd be a liar if I sat here and said I thought it was a great result for the rest of us." He added: "It's going to be even harder this year to get a top-four place. "Man City are definitely stronger than last year; they've improved, bought some big players. "People wrote Liverpool off a few weeks ago; I thought that was nonsense because they were always going to come good. "To keep them out of the top four is going to be difficult again this year." Sunderland striker Darren Bent could be sidelined for several weeks by the hamstring injury which kept him out of Saturday's 2-0 victory over Stoke. The England international was due to have another scan on the problem, which he picked up in training on Friday, and is extremely unlikely to be involved. Central defender John Mensah is also a major doubt as a result of the shoulder injury he suffered at the weekend, although Titus Bramble is available after serving a one-match ban. The Black Cats desperately needed a victory in the wake of the derby drubbing at Newcastle, and they travel to London determined to address a poor away record which is hampering their efforts to establish themselves in the top half of the table. Bruce said: "We keep talking about it, but we are not alone in it, you know. "Stoke, Fulham, Blackburn, Wigan - I can give you umpteen where people find it difficult to win in this league. "That's why it is as tough a league as it is. This Barclays Premier League is as tough as I have ever known it. "Every team is competitive - as we have seen again, from Blackpool (drawing with Everton) to Wolves losing (to Manchester United) in the last minute - it's a great league we are in and to be up sitting where we are at the moment, I am very, very pleased."

Match Report

Spurs held by Black Cats They may be taking the Champions League by storm, but Tottenham face a real battle to qualify for next year's competition after extending their winless run in the Barclays Premier League to four games following a 1-1 draw with Sunderland. Rafael van der Vaart looked to have come to Spurs' rescue when he kept up his remarkable record of scoring in every home appearance since joining the club. But a horrible mix-up between William Gallas and Younes Kaboul gifted the visitors an immediate equaliser, Asamoah Gyan taking full advantage with his third goal in two games. Tottenham have now taken just two points from a possible 12 and are four adrift of the top four, all of whom have a game in hand. This game kicked off a week after Spurs' historic Champions League win over Inter Milan. But the home side's European exploits had taken a toll on their league form and they started the match only separated from Sunderland in the table by goals scored. They started in determined fashion with Luka Modric's low strike forcing a fingertip save in the third minute from Craig Gordon, who was making his first appearance of the season after recovering from a broken arm. Other long-range efforts from both sides were less successful before the recalled Kieran Richardson almost saw his shot deflect in off Kaboul. There was a lack of a cutting edge at each end until Tom Huddlestone hit the crossbar with a nonchalant 30-yard effort. That came in the 18th minute and was immediately followed by Anton Ferdinand, one of six changes for the visitors, limping off to be replaced by Phil Bardsley. The crossing continued to disappoint, with even Gareth Bale failing to deliver anywhere near the kind of quality that saw him shoot to worldwide fame against Inter Milan. Van der Vaart, who had recovered from a hamstring strain to start, did his best to provide it, playing a one-two with Huddlestone and firing a near-post shot which was easily saved by Gordon. The goalkeeper then tipped over an ambitious David Bentley free-kick from wide on the left, while Gyan did well to direct a header on target from Boudewijn Zenden's cross. A disappointing half looked destined to end goalless as Bentley, starting a league game for the first time in more than six months, unleashed a brilliant left-foot strike which Gordon did well to turn behind. Half-time saw both sides make changes, Spurs withdrawing Roman Pavlyuchenko for Peter Crouch and Sunderland bringing off Cristian Riveros for Danny Welbeck. But it was Van der Vaart who should have broken the deadlock in the 52nd minute, the unmarked midfielder nodding Alan Hutton's cross wide. That was immediately followed by the game's first real talking point, with Bentley going down in the box under a challenge from Zenden. Referee Howard Webb booked Bentley for diving, and although television replays proved inconclusive, the home fans were furious. They almost had something to cheer about when Van der Vaart found the target with his latest header, only to see Gordon claw it behind. Bale blew a great chance to play Van der Vaart clean through just past the hour mark but made amends in the 64th minute by helping set up what has become a trademark goal from the Dutchman. The winger's cross found Crouch at the back post and the substitute's header landed at the feet of Van der Vaart to turn and fire home. Spurs had not kept a clean sheet in the league since the opening day and they gifted the visitors an equaliser three minutes later, Gallas and Kaboul getting in each other's way and allowing Gyan all the time he needed to slide the ball beyond Heurelho Gomes. There was a major flashpoint moments later when Lee Cattermole left Modric on the floor with a studs-first challenge that did connect with the ball before catching the Croatian. A mass shoving match ensued before Webb produced the game's second yellow card. The visitors ran down the clock by replacing Richardson with Steed Malbranque and the new man made an instant impact, with Gomes booked for tripping the midfielder just outside the box when a red card might have been shown. The visitors finished the stronger and only more desperate defending prevented them snatching a surprise win.
