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.



  1. What’s with the ludicrous strapline ‘..edge past ten-man Sunderland.’ The visitors were down to ten men for all of five minutes! Makes it sound like we should have beaten a depleted team for most of the match.

  2. apart from Stoke away this is not great our home form is crap why we cannot put these teams who come here to defend to bed early on makes the whole day one to forget HANDS UP ANY OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU HAVE WATCHED SO FAR THIS SEASON
