Spurs Continue Their Quiet Climb

The dark horse of English football is slowly marching into the limelight.

Tottemham Hotspur didn't waste any time crushing downtrodden Sunderland, though, posting a 4-1 three-pointer.

The Black Cats continue to for life iin the Premiership, and yet another false dawn of hope appeared here when Patrick van Aanholt netted the game's first goal:

But all that really did was bring Spurs to life.

Christian Eriksen pulled the home side even:

Kids always have a hard time stopping a bouncing ball.

Mousa Dembele doubled the Spurs' cushion with a smashing strike:

Erikson came back again with a magic show for all in attendance:

Harry Kane had no trouble adding to his goal total:

That's as perfect as it gets in penalties.
