Tale of the game
Spurs return to White Hart Lane four days after the 1-1 draw with Sunderland when, for the first time in eight League games, they did not concede the first goal.
Yet after Rafael van der Vaart netted his seventh goal – all coming in six home games – Asamoah Gyan’s reply left Spurs with a share of the points.
David Bentley was given his first League start of the season against Sunderland while van der Vaart was back after missing the 4-2 defeat at Bolton.
Spurs, though, are likely to still be without a raft of key players including Aaron Lennon, Jermain Defoe, Jonathan Woodgate, Michael Dawson and Ledley King.
