WATCH: Harry Kane accepts gift, gives Spurs lead vs. Sunderland

Thanks!

After 60 frustrating minutes of coming close but not finding net, Tottenham Hotspur have finally taken a 1-0 lead over Sunderland. Harry Kane scored his second Premier League goal of the season to give Spurs the breakthrough.

Kyle Walker’s cross from the right flank was headed down across goal by Dele Alli where Sunderland defender Papy Djilobodji couldn’t handle the ball properly and fumbled right into the path of last season’s Golden Boot winner. Harry made no mistake in capitalizing on the Sunderland mishap.

Tottenham have been the much better side throughout the duration of the match and have come close to scoring many times only to be denied. Finally a little luck comes their way and they have a lead. Now they must keep applying pressure and hope a second comes to kill the match off and get the expected three points against a poor Sunderland side.
