Gus Bemoans Not Getting A Penalty
Former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe was making his debut for Sunderland on his old stomping ground and he had a very strong claim for a penalty turned down after a block in the area by Jan Vertonghen.
Poyet told reporters: 'He started brightly and if he had got the penalty he would have scored. The ref didn't see what everyone else in the ground saw.'
Defoe won the free kick from which Sebastian Larsson brilliantly equalised Vertonghen's opener, but Christian Eriksen won it for Spurs two minutes from time.
