Tottenham threw away a hard-fought lead against Sunderland as their winless run in the Barclays Premier League extended to four matches following a 1-1 draw.

Rafael van der Vaart maintained his remarkable record of scoring in every home game since joining Spurs with a trademark 64th-minute finish.

But a horrible mix-up between William Gallas and Younes Kaboul gifted Asamoah Gyan an equaliser just three minutes later to leave the home side seven points adrift of the top four having played a game more.
