Sandro has stated his belief that victory over a Chelsea on Thursday could give Spurs the confidence to mount a genuine Premier League title challenge, according to Goal.com. The challenge hit a bump in the road with last weekend’s unfortunate 2-1 defeat at Stoke, but it was put back on track yesterday with a 1-0 victory over Sunderland, despite the absence of Gareth Bale and Jermain Defoe, and a first half injury to Aaron Lennon.

Bale injury doubt for Spurs

Bale sprained his ankle during training on Friday and missed Sunday's 1-0 win over Sunderland at White Hart Lane.

Adebayor issues Spurs warning

Spurs moved in to third place in the Premier League on Sunday with a nervy 1-0 win over Sunderland at White Hart Lane. Spurs lacked the vibrancy and attacking flair which they have displayed in abundance during their recent 11-match unbeaten run, and had it not been for a good performance from Brad Friedel in goal, the Black Cats would have come away with at least a point.
