Mauricio Pochettino: Awaiting news on Kane injury

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was happy with his side’s 1-0 win over Sunderland despite failing to convert dominance into goals.

Harry Kane grabbed the only goal, but it came from a Papy Djilibodji mistake, leaving question marks over Spurs’ attack once more after they fired more than 30 shots on the Sunderland goal during the 90 minutes at White Hart Lane.

Pochettino, though, insists he is unconcerned.

“Sometimes it’s difficult,” he explained. “[But] in the end it was fair.

“We fought a lot and tried to score. I’m happy with the three points and it takes away the feeling from losing against Monaco.

“I want to create chances and play well – sometimes you need a lot of chances to score. Today we always tried to go forward. We feel disappointed because we created a lot of chances in the first half.”

Spurs saw three players leave the action with injury, but Pochettino has provided an update, saying: “Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier are not a big issue – just cramps.

“Harry Kane twisted his ankle and now we need to know about the injury. We need to wait until tomorrow.”
