Published Add your comment

Tottenham's match against Sunderland not only brought a point but also meant Aaron Lennon and Emmanuel Adebayor hit significant appearances milestones.

Striker Adebayor hit a century of appearances for the Lilywhites, while Lennon's appearance off the bench meant he has now made 350 appearances for Tottenham.

Adebayor, who has scored 42 times in 100 games, was disappointed he could not crown his personal achievement with a win.

“We had so many chances, didn’t take them and we’re all disappointed - I don’t know what else to say,” the Togolese striker told the club's website.

“I have been in England for a long time now and Tottenham for a long time now as well. It’s good for me, I’m very happy. I know I have the confidence of everyone at the club and I’ll try to keep doing my job and doing my best.

“I’m happy to have reached 100 games, now I look forward to 101 and102 and I’ll try to score as many goals as I can and help the team as much as possible.”

Lennon, meanwhile, is 4th in the all-time Tottenham Premier League appearance chart, and only behind Steve Perryman in terms of European appearances for the club.

Spurs have not lost a game in which Lennon has scored, but with only 26 league goals it is not such an impression statistic.
