Tottenham edged past Sunderland at White Hart Lane thanks to Harry Kane’s second half winner.
But it wasn’t all good news for the hosts who saw Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and goalscorer Kane all leave the field with injuries.
Kane’s looked a particularly bad one. The striker went down on his ankle, which he appeared to twist badly.
Despite his injury, Dembele impressed on his return to the side after suspension. Heung-Min Son also played well, and Erik Lamela made a lively cameo appearance off the bench.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result and performance.
I'll take it. 5 unbeaten. 3rd. Decent performance. On another day that finishes 5 or 6-0. Hope the three injuries aren't too serious. #COYS

A deserved 3 points. Son man of the match by a distance.

Got to be honest I'm absolutely livid after that. Should have killed it off and won 5-0. Completely slowed down after the first goal. #THFC

We got there, but at what cost? Dier off injured (hamstring), Kane taken away on a stretcher (ankle) & Walker felt his hamstring too.

Didn't make that easy but glad to get the win!! Really hope Kane is ok! Come on you beautiful Spurs!!

Put that down as a costly win. Hopefully get Dier and Demble back for Boro or at worst CSKA Moscow. Kane could be much longer though.

So stressed about Harry's injury that I'm really struggling to celebrate our win. Early indications are really not good 😫 #COYS

3rd and we havent even warmed up yet.

Son was the outright MOTM today. No doubt about that. Looks to have nailed on LW for a while now. He will get the goals eventually. #COYS

Son was brilliant. I hate that every visiting goalkeeper to WHL have the game of their life. Worried now about Janssen replacing Kane.

It's wouldn't be Spurs if we didn't make it hard for ourselves against relegation fodder, decent performance but we need to take our chances
