Sunderland visit the capital this weekend for their game with Tottenham Hotspurs.

Spurs have just started to play well under tutorage of Juande Ramos but hopefully their inconsistent form will reappear this Saturday.

Roy Keane`s men are on the back of some good form themselves, with recent wins against Portsmouth and Bolton.

Tottenham Hotspurs Team News:

Spurs only doubt is Dimitar Berbatov with him having flu earlier in the week. (Hope he is still out)

Tom Huddlestone available after serving his suspension.

Player to watch: Dimitar Berbatov

(If Playing) Spurs top scorer last season with 12 league goals. We will have to contain the Bulgarian if we are to get a result from Spurs

Sunderland Team News:

Ross Wallace, Danny Higginbotham, Grant Leadbitter and Carlos Edwards are out injured.

We are also without Dickson Etuhu who is at the African Cup of Nations.

Player to watch: Kenwyne Jones

Jones has been in great form lately if we are going to have any chance against Spurs he will have to be at his best.

Match Facts & Stats

In our last six league games away to Tottenham we have Won 0, Draw 0 and Lost 6

Ref Watch:

Lee Mason

Match Prediction:

It will be a tough game but I think we will just sneak it so I`ll go for a 0-1 win to Sunderland

Kick off 20:00

  • Mate I don’t mind Sunderland and prefer em to Barcodes and Boro but you coming away from WHL with 3 points is very, very unlikely. Not impossible…but I can’t see you getting anything outta this one.

  • “Last 6 games – won 0, drawn 0, lost 6. I think we’ll pick up a win.” I suppose you Sunderland fans do need to have some optimism even if it is misplaced. And as for Roy Keane saying he wouldn’t swap Kenwyne Jones for Berba…

  • 2-0 to spurs not too bad i supose as tottenham are going well recently with ramos but still you need soem points soon or you’ll be in trouble
