Redemption was the theme for Tottenham after suffering a heavy 3-0 defeat to Liverpool prior to the international break.

Spurs looked keen to get that loss out of their system, and they made good inroads toward achieving that when Chadli fired them ahead early on.

Sunderland goalkeeper Vito Mannone parried away Emmanuel Adebayor's effort, but Chadli was on hand to poke the rebound into the corner for his third of the season.

Their lead lasted barely more than a minute, however, as Adam Johnson worked his way into the area before his deflected shot deceived Hugo Lloris.

The visitors were unlucky not to move ahead once again seven minutes before the break, as Moussa Dembele saw his 25-yard shot thump off the crossbar.
