LONDON - Bottom side Sunderland's hopes of survival have taken another dent as they were beaten 5-1 at Tottenham.

Emmanuel Adebayor scored two of the goals as Tottenham moved back up to sixth, keeping alive their quest for European football next season.

Sunderland remains bottom, seven points from safety although it still has two games in hand on its rivals.

Lee Cattermole gave Sunderland a shock lead on 17 minutes with his first goal for the club but Adebayor equalised just before the half-hour mark on Monday night.

Harry Kane marked his Tottenham debut with a goal on the hour mark and Christian Eriksen, Adebayor again and Gylfi Sigurdsson completed the rout.
