Spurs dominate but only scrape past Sunderland after Adebayor misses sitter
Sunderland 1 – Tottenham 2 (Premier League, December 29, 2012) (Alternative Highlights, High quality highlights & MOTD highlights.) Emmanuel Adebayor had a Ronnie Rosenthal moment, hitting the crossbar from 2 yards out (!!). John O’Shea gave Sunderland the lead poking a loose ball home from a set-piece. Carlos Cuellar turned into his own net with an Own Golazo, firing an unstoppable header past his own ‘keeper to make it 1-1. Aaron Lennon stole in right after to make it 2-1 Spurs. Jermain Defoe should have made it 3-1 to Spurs, but he hesitated and gave Mignolet time to make a great save. Gareth Bale was booked (harshly) for diving in the Sunderland box.
