Tottenham can cope without injured Kane, insists Hugo Lloris
Sep 24 2016 by Marjorie Miles
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".
Cuomo: Corruption allegations 'reprehensible'
Despite several close to him being accused of criminality, Cuomo insisted he had no knowledge of the criminal activity. The coziness depicted in the complaint makes it hard for some to believe that Cuomo did not know something was amiss.

The complaint also accuses him of placing five explosive devices in a trash container at a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Rahami was apprehended on Monday in Linden, New Jersey, after a shootout with police that left him with multiple gunshot wounds.
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.
