Harry Redknapp heaped praise on Tottenham Hotspur for breaking down a stubborn Sunderland defence after a 4-1 win at White Hart Lane.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side couldn’t capitalise on a strong start in front of their home supporters, and Patrick van Aanholt gave Sunderland a 40th minute lead in north London.

However, Christian Eriksen scored his first goal since 4 October in the Premier League to level before half-time and Eriksen added a third after Mousa Dembele’s brilliant goal.

Harry Kane scored his 12th Premier League goal of the season to seal three points, and former Spurs manager Redknapp was full of praise for Tottenham’s resilience after a tough first half.

“It was a difficult first half for them,” Redknapp told BT Sport.

“Sunderland got bodies behind the ball and frustrated Tottenham. In the end, Spurs found a way and that’s what you have to do on difficult days.
“Four goals at home is a great result.”

Tottenham are four points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal ahead of the Gunners’s clash against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium in Sunday’s late kick-off.
