Tottenham produced a second-half turnaround to beat Sunderland 2-1 on Saturday and climb provisionally into third place in the Premier League.
England winger Aaron Lennon scored a fine solo strike for Spurs' winner in the 52nd minute, soon after they had grabbed an equalizer when Carlos Cuellar headed a corner into his own net at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland, buoyant after beating Manchester City 1-0 on Wednesday, took the lead against the run of play in the 40th through John O'Shea's close-range strike but the hosts were outplayed throughout.
Spurs' sixth win in their last eight league matches lifted them a point above Chelsea into third place, although their London rivals have two games in hand _ the first coming against Everton on Sunday.
