PLAYER RATINGS: Spurs 1-0 Sunderland

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Harry Kane scored the winner and then left the pitch on a stretcher as Tottenham secured a 1-0 victory over struggling Sunderland.

Kane’s second goal of the season came to Spurs’ rescue at White Hart Lane but manager Mauricio Pochettino will be sweating on the striker’s fitness after he had to be carried off in the 89th minute.

The victory sends Tottenham up to third in the table and maintains their unbeaten start, while Sunderland remain without a win in the Premier League this season.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Who was our no7 ? Looked a bit like that ineffective Son from last season – but *way* better. Had a fantastic game and deserved a goal.OS

  2. Thought that was Son's best game in a Spurs shirt, apart from 3 dodgy corners in the 2nd half. More of the same please. A bit worrying with all the injuries. Hope none of them are bad, especially Kane's.
