Tottenham will be looking to overcome their midweek disappointment in the Champions League which saw them lose 2-1 to Monaco at Wembley Stadium when they take on Sunderland on Sunday. The north London club will be playing their European games at the iconic stadium this season, but were second best against the French league leaders.

Mauricio Pochettino accused his team of lacking passion, and will hope they get back to winning ways when they face the Black Cats. The Argentine manager hinted that he could make changes to the team that played on Wednesday, but is unlikely to take too many chances. Danny Rose is the only major absentee from the team with the defender yet to recover from a hamstring injury.

Sunderland, on the other hand, are struggling to conjure a win and are currently in the 19<sup>th place having lost three of their opening four games of the campaign. David Moyes will be hoping his team can turn their fortunes around, but will face a difficult task against Spurs, who are unbeaten in their last 12 encounters.

The former Manchester United manager will hope loan signing Adnan Januzaj and in-form striker Jermain Defoe can inspire his team to their first win of the season, against Tottenham, who are slightly low on confidence after their loss against Monaco.

Stat of the Match: Tottenham are unbeaten in 12 league games against Sunderland since a defeat in April 2010 (W9, D3).

What Managers Say

Mauricio Pochettino [on team selection]: It's true that after Wednesday I am thinking about rotating the team a bit. We'll see what happens tomorrow when we assess all the players and take the best decision for the team."

David Moyes: "I'm certainly up for the challenge - that's what I came for. When I wanted to come back in, I wanted somewhere that excited me - I'd like to say this was really exciting, but maybe not in the way I hoped! But there has to be a realistic element to this. There is a building job and we are up against it, undoubtedly. But we have got a great chance to prove ourselves and we have got a great chance to show what we can do."
