Tottenham goal 'a gift' - Sunderland boss Moyes

Sunderland boss David Moyes has described Tottenham Hotspur's goal in the 1-0 win against the Black Cats as 'a gift' from his side.

The only goal in the came in the 59th minute when Harry Kane put the ball into the back of the net from close range after centre-back Papy Djilobodji missed an easy clearance in front of his own goal.

"It was a gift in the end," said Moyes on Sky Sports.

"In truth, the boys had done fine, they'd defended really well, they'd blocked everything that had come in, they'd headed things out, but, you know, that sort of lapse in concentration or making sure that you're there all the time and tuned in let us down today.

"They're resolute, they'll stick at it, they'll do their best to be in the game all the time, but we have to play a lot better."
