Middlesbrough 1 Tottenham 2: Son’s double maintains Spurs’ unbeaten start

On-loan centre-back Calum Chambers almost gifted Spurs a third just before the break when he lost the ball to Eriksen who fed Dele Alli, only for the England star to blaze over.

Karanka sent on striker Jordan Rhodes and winger Adama Traore on the hour and that brought Boro to life – Gibson beating Sissoko to head in Stewart Downing’s free-kick – but Spurs held firm to move up to second place in the table.

MIDDLESBROUGH: Valdes 5; Barragan 5, Chambers 5, Gibson 7, Friend 6; De Roon 5; Clayton 5 (Forshaw 81st), Stuani 5, Ramirez 5 (Traore (59th) 6); Downing 6, Negredo 5 (Rhodes (59th) 6).

TOTTENHAM: Lloris 7; Walker 6, Alderweireld 6, Vertonghen 6, Davies 6, Wanyama 6, Alli 6, Sissoko 5 (Lamela (69th) 5), Eriksen 7 (Nkoudou 89th), Son 8, Janssen 6 (Winks 86th).
