Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason is determined to kick-start the Londoners’ season with victory at Sunderland when the Premier League returns to action next weekend.

Spurs have yet to win in four league games this term, with three points on the board from three draws, just one ahead of the Black Cats, who will welcome Mauricio Pochettino’s men to the Stadium of Light next Sunday, September 13 (1.30pm kick-off).

“The way we are playing, we know the results will come,” said 24-year-old Mason, who has featured in all four games.

“We’ve outplayed every team we’ve come up against this season. We want to get that winning feeling back as soon as possible and Sunderland away next time out is a big game for us.”

Mason is enjoying training with the senior England squad for the Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Switzerland, his third call-up to Roy Hodgson’s side.

“It’s a great feeling and just shows all the hard work and sacrifices I’ve made over the years are more than worth it,” he told tottenhamhotspur.com

“It’s an honour to be part of the England squad. I wouldn’t say it’s so much of an eye-opener, an eye-opener is going on loan to a lower-league club from Spurs and I experienced that in previous seasons.

“To join up with the England squad is the level I’ve always wanted to reach so it’s more of an appreciation for the work I’ve put in.”
