John O'Shea's own goal helps Tottenham defeat Sunderland 2-1
It was the fifth time this season a Sunderland player had put through his own goal.

England: John O'Shea's own-goal condemned Sunderland to a demoralising home defeat on Saturday as Tottenham handed under-fire manager Andre Villas-Boas a second successive victory in the Premier League.

The Republic of Ireland international turned Moussa Dembele's 50th-minute cross past goalkeeper Vito Mannone at the Stadium of Light, leaving the Black Cats deep in trouble at the foot of the table.

It was the fifth time this season a Sunderland player had put through his own goal.

Sunderland took the lead in the 37th when Adam Johnson capitalized on goalkeeper Hugo Lloris' blunder to score his first league goal of the season. But Paulinho levelled at close range within six minutes after a headed pass from Nacer Chadli and Spurs never looked back.

Sunderland were convinced them deserved a 75th-minute penalty after substitute Sandro appeared to block Sebastian Larsson's corner with his arm.

Tottenham beat Fulham 2-1 midweek and are sixth with 27 points from 15 games.
