Tottenham won its first match of the Premier League season on Sunday with Ryan Mason clinching a 1-0 victory over Sunderland.
But after five matches, Sunderland remains winless in the league with only two points after coming close to being relegated last season.
Mason scored in the 82nd minute in northeast England, taking Erik Lamela's through-ball before clipping over goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon.
Though Harry Kane scored twice on international duty with England, the striker remains without a goal for Tottenham after being the league's second-highest scorer last season.
In Sunday's other game, unbeaten Leicester was hosting Aston Villa.
