Kane fires Spurs to victory


Tottenham Hotspur bounced back from their midweek loss in the Champions League with a 1-0 win over Sunderland at White Hart Lane.

Harry Kane’s second straight Premier League goal complimented a dominant Spurs performance, although the striker was later brought off with a serious ankle injury.

The hosts put their Wembley nightmare behind them after they were beaten 2-1 by Monaco in which was their first Champions League game in five years.

David Moyes’ side finished the game with ten-men after Adnan Januzaj received a second yellow card in the closing stages for a foul on Ben Davis, which soured a brave performance from the Blackcats.

Despite dominating much of the possession in the first half, Spurs were continually frustrated as they stalked a nervy Sunderland defence early on.

Son Heung-min proved to be one of Tottenham’s most instrumental players throughout the 90 minutes and the South Korean was unlucky not to top his performance with a goal when his shot from outside the box just clipped the post.

David Moyes’ players had opportunities few and far between, but they should have taken the lead in the 44th minute when former Spurs player Steven Pienaar had his shot cleared off the line by Kyle Walker.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side cranked up the pressure in the second-half and they finally opened the scoring in the 58th minute when Dele Alli headed to Harry Kane who no mistake from close-range.

The home-side had numerous chances throughout the second-half but failed to add to their lead when Erik Lamela’s shot in the 80th minute was blocked before the Argentinian’s curling shot was met with a superb save from the in-form Jordan Pickford.

Pochettino’s team move up to third in the league and face newly-promoted Middlesbrough next weekend while Sunderland will face Crystal Palace at the Stadium of Light in search of their first win of the season.
