Six points in four days – but perhaps more importantly, a performance that in parts had us clearing our throats and purring. For around 25 glorious minutes we were treated to a glimpse of how the world might look if the wolf really does lie down with the lamb, famine and disease are shoved under the carpet and Spurs get their act together.

It seems you can't sneeze these days without another Spurs fixture hurtling towards you. This presumably gives Messrs Levy, Baldini and Villas-Boas a degree of smug satisfaction, because even if the XI on the pitch each game can do no more than trundle the ball sideways and backwards, on paper at least we do have a squad eminently capable of coping with two games per week.

Sunderland 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur Premier League 7th December 2013
Spurs battled to a precious victory at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, a result which takes some of the pressure off manager Andre Villas-Boas. Adam Johnson had given the Black Cats the lead after some fumbling from Hugo Lloris but a close-range effort from Paulinho before the break followed by a John O'Shea OG in the second-period secured a hard-fought, but deserved win for a Tottenham side who worked hard for the three points.
Both managers were happy to sing Eden Hazard's praises after Chelsea's 3-4 win at Sunderland last night. The Belgium winger weighed in with two goals and an assist in the match, and was in outstanding form throughout the game. Blues boss Jose Mourinho said: "He was fantastic from the first minute getting the ball attacking [.
Sunderland 3-4 Chelsea Premier League 4th December 2013
Eden Hazard netted a fine brace as Chelsea held on to secure a vital win at the Stadium of Light. Jozy Altidore opened the scoring before Frank Lampard levelled the scores. Hazard's two goals sandwiched a John O'Shea strike before a goal at either end courtesy of Phil Bardsley lead to an exciting finale.
Chelsea Player Ratings vs Sunderland – Hazard a class apart - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Chelsea managed to hold off a spirited Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday evening, coming out 4-3 winners after a hugely entertaining match.
In a game of endless attacking raids from both sides, Chelsea were ultimately indebted to some brilliant individual play from Eden Hazard, and a strength of character particularly inherent to Jose Mourinho's teams.
Barnburner, this one. 7 goals on the night, but it was an own goal by Bardsley that won it for Chelsea. Hazard put in a brace and Altidore had a sweet back to the goal shot that put him on the score sheet. Final, Chelsea 4 - Sunderland 3. Video: Footytube
Chelsea beat Sunderland 4-3 tonight with a fine display from Eden Hazard scoring two and assisting another and we take a massive three points following on from three points against Southampton last weekend!
Right now, with games coming thick and fast, I personally don't care about the level of performance from Chelsea.
After1,205 minutes without a goal in the English Premier League, Jozy Altidore scored his first EPL goal of the season for Sunderland in the 14th minute on Wednesday against Chelsea. Altidore collected a pass from teammate Jack Colback in the box, spun to his right, and fired low past Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech with a left-footed shot to level the scoreline at the time.
Sunderland and US international striker Jozy Altidore finally scored his first Premier League goal for Sunderland today.
Altidore scored for the Black Cats in the first half of the match against Chelsea at the Stadium of Light. Altidore, with his back to goal, did well to hold up the ball, and then twist and turn to get his shot on goal against Petr Cech and into the back of the net.
It's coming to light what Alan Pardew told the Newcastle players after the defeat at Sunderland a few weeks ago, and even though he told the press after the game the side had played well he knows the result is all-important, and a second successive defeat against an under-performing Sunderland side, was more than [.
Tonight as part of a massive week for Chelsea, we make the long trip up north to take on Gus Poyet's Sunderland. After Sunday's win against Southampton, how many changes if any should Jose Mourinho make? You pick the starting eleven!
I believe that Jose Mourinho will make at least three changes to the side that started against Southampton with one being an enforced change due to the injury to Oscar that rules him out of this one.
Stoke vs Sunderland: Preview, Team News & Prediction - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Sunderland will travel to Britannia Stadium to face Stoke City, looking to get full three points and continue their revival under new manager Gus Poyet. Stoke City under Mark Hughes are just three points and two places above them so both the team will know the importance of three points here.
Paulo Di Canio Strikes Back - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Ex-Sunderland manager, Paulo Di Canio, has publically come out in staunch defence of his tenure at the club; blaming ‘pathetic' fitness levels, strange transfer dealings, and poor player attitudes for his lack of success.
The fiery Italian was sacked after gaining one point from his first five games in charge this season, and in his first interview about his time at the Stadium of Light, Di Canio insists that he is now ‘.
In their last game on matchday 11, 2012 Premier League Champions and 2013 runners-up Manchester City slumped to their4th away defeat in only 6 away games of the season, having played 10 games overall, losing 1-0 to struggling Sunderland who sat second from bottom of the Premier League. As things stand if City don't shake off the shackles of their poor away form they are going to be out of the title race come Christmas end.
Mike Williamson turned 30 last Friday, a day before Newcastle recorded their second successive win against a top six side when we beat Tottenham 1-0 at White Hart Lane, after we had demolished Chelsea 2-0 the weekend before.

Is it true that Newcastle fans tend to go over board when we get a good result like against Chelsea on Saturday, and do the same thing if we get a bad result, like at Sunderland a week last Sunday for instance? Of course it is. Alan Pardew after the great win on Saturday And [...]
It's been a long while since I did one of these, let alone one that wasn't in UEFA tourney action. But today seems a great day to give to all those stuck at work, seeing how a certain Jozy Altidore is starting. I will also be keeping some stat tallies for peculiar categories I dreamed up. I'll be back in a moment with the line-ups, kickoff is in about 10 minutes.
USMNT coach Jurgen Klinsmann is traveling to England to see how US striker Jozy Altidore does for Sunderland against Manchester City in Sunday's game (live on NBCSN at 9am ET for viewers in the United States).
Altidore has failed to score in the Premier League thus far, but the American has one goal to his credit in the Capital One Cup.
Chelsea have been training today ahead of tomorrow's clash at Sunderland. Ashley Cole, who has been promised a return to the Blues' starting line-up in one of their next two fixtures, was in action. And fresh from his goal against Southampton at the weekend, Demba Ba will be please to note Jose Mourinho was paying [.
Sunderland are weighing up a move for Swedish youngster Valmir Berisha. The 17-year-old has previously been linked with the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham, Ajax and Roma, although his current club Halmstads insist they have received no contact from any of those sides. The Black Cats are the latest team to look at the young striker.
Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is the subject of interest from Stoke, Hull, Sunderland and Crystal Palace. There is a surprisingly long queue of clubs lining up to take the out-of-sorts forward in January. Despite manager Arsene Wenger admitting that the Denmark international was within a whisker of leaving the Emirates over the summer, injuries and [.
I don't even think this challenge was a foul, no matter a red card. However, the man in black at the Britannia on Saturday, Kevin Friend, decided to send Wes Brown off for this challenge on Charlie Adam. A dreadful decision, no?
