Kane, Walker and more: Twitter reacts as Tottenham beat Sunderland
Kyle Walker and Harry Kane both take to Twitter after Tottenham beat Sunderland 1-0 at the Stadium of Light
Ryan Mason’s late goal handed Tottenham Hotspur a much-needed victory at Sunderland to hoist the north London club up to 13th in the Premier League table.
After a goalless 82 minutes at the Stadium of Light, Mason dinked his effort past Costel Pantilimon, injuring himself while doing so.
The victory was Spurs’ first in the Premier League this season, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men having slumped to three draws and a loss in their previous four outings in the top flight.
The game prompted a quick flurry of activity from fans and players on social media, and here are some of our favourite updates.
Gary Lineker keeps his update short and to the point:
