Sunderland 0 Tottenham 0: Spurs return to third place
O'Neill's men almost made a dramatic start to the second half, McClean finding Sessegnon in the box and the striker's low shot striking the legs of Gallas. The impressive Jack Colback, playing in an unfamiliar full-back role, denied Adebayor a close-range chance inthe 52nd minute when he blocked a ball into the box by Modric. Adebayor was caught narrowly offside as he attempted to scissor-kick home a lofted ball from Van der Vaart, then Bale headed onto the roof of the net from a cross by Assou-Ekotto.
