Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood won't be taking Sunderland lightly tonight.
Managed by former Spurs team-mate Gus Poyet, the Black Cats are in relegation trouble and need positive results quickly.
"If their spirit can mirror their manager, then they will certainly be going until they have no breath left in them," Sherwood said.
"That gives them a real opportunity. They haven't been fantastic - their results have suggested that.
"But we really have to worry about ourselves. It is all about pride now and getting the maximum points possible between now and the end of the season.
"We've got to play with the shackles off. We are not coming up against a technical mismatch now, against teams in the top four.
"We're playing against teams who are in and around mid-table or below that, so we really have to play with a lot of freedom and try to entertain these great fans we have."
