Tottenham can cope without injured Kane, insists Hugo Lloris

Kane hit the 58th-minute victor to see off 10-man Sunderland but he was carried off on a stretcher in the 86th after turning his ankle in a challenge with defender Papy Djilobodji.

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.

Still, it's of some comfort to Mauricio Pochettino and company that despite the injury issues, the team prevailed and got the victory. "It's true they [Harry Kane and Vincent Janssen] are different but they can play the same way", Pochettino said (via Hertfordshire Mercury).

"You can see [Vincent's] qualities".

"Tottenham had most of the ball, we had to defend for long periods but at least we gave ourselves a chance of winning the game today. It's impossible to assess today and to know how long it will be".

The wording and previous reports suggest that Kane's ankle isn't as severely damaged as it could have been, but that's still not a fun injury to come back from.

"We all felt guilty but the most important thing is the way you react, and yesterday was a very good signal for the manager, the club and the fans too".

Peterson has torn meniscus in knee, still might be able to play
Coach Ron Rivera revealed to reporters running back Jonathan Stewart's hamstring injury could keep him out at least a week or two. But Zimmer was optimistic after the game, saying Peterson, "might miss a week" only. "We're starting to do some of those things".

Pochettino will decide whether to play Janssen against Gillingham in the EFL Cup tomorrow or save him for the game at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

"We need to be positive now the damage is done", said Pochettino. The Black Cats parked the bus, but ultimately capitulated to a second half game victor by Harry Kane.

"Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier got cramps in their hamstrings", the Argentine explained on Sky Sports.

"We need to be ready to try to replace him and I think that Vincent arrives in a good moment where he is ready to compete", the Spurs boss added.

It was a hard fought victory for the League One side, as they took the game against the Premier League opponents to extra time before striker Bradley Dack scored the match victor in the 102 minute to score a famous victory and set up a tie against Spurs.

"It was a good result", Pochettino said.
