Tottenham 1-2 Sunderland Highlights
Djibril Cisse scored on his Sunderland debut to condemn Tottenham to their second straight Premier League defeat.
Spurs, who dropped Dimitar Berbatov, were lucky not to trail at half-time after Steed Malbranque hit the post.
Gareth Bale powered a header over for the hosts soon after the re-start but they fell behind when Kieran Richardson rifled home after 55 minutes.
Spurs twice went close before Jermaine Jenas levelled but sub Cisse’s late header left Tottenham without a point.
