Roy Keane’s anger watching Tottenham against Chelsea revealed amid brutal Harry Kane verdict

0 Roy Keane

Roy Keane had a few choice words for Tottenham Hotspur and Harry Kane, in particular, following their 3-0 loss against Chelsea.

After starting the new Premier League season with three wins on the bounce that had the north London outfit top of the table going into the international break, Spurs have been brought back down to earth with a bump since.

Last weekend they were beaten 3-0 by Crystal Palace and suffered a defeat by the same scoreline at home to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

Despite perhaps being the better side in the first-half, Spurs went in at the break on level terms, but a tactical tweak from Thomas Tuchel ultimately won the game for the Blues.

N’Golo Kante’s addition in midfield allowed Chelsea to gain more control and he was on the scoresheet alongside Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger to make their dominance count.

However, Keane thinks Tottenham’s problems were all of their own doing and admitted to be ‘angry’ at watching how things unfolded in north London.

The Manchester United legend blasted Spurs for a lack of desire and questioned Kane’s body language following another Premier League appearance without a goal this season.

“I thought Chelsea were excellent, we know what they’re about, real quality, a lot of energy, desire, men vs boys,” Keane said on Sky Sports. “I can’t believe how poor Spurs were but you can have an off day and lose to quality but lack of desire like we saw with the second and probably third, all the goals.

“Talk about putting your body on the line. The game is 90 minutes long, they done well in the first half, it doesn’t matter. It’s over the course of the game, you get through your difficult spells, try and survive, stay in the game.

“Chelsea had an amazing team you seen it with the substitutions they brought on, pure quality. I’ve no problem with Tottenham being short of quality, [but] even Kane’s body language today, his performance today; Kane, oh my goodness. He’s meant to be one of the team’s leaders, where was he?

“I’m pretty angry watching Spurs there, you talk about football, the second goal is the difference between desire and wanting to win a football match, we’ve seen that.

“Tottenham players not doing the basics. I’m talking about closing someone down, putting your body on the line; that comes from within, we can criticise maybe the coach and a lot of other stuff but get to the ball, stop the shot, put your body on the line.”

Things don’t get easier for Spurs as they face Wolves away from home in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening before the small matter of a North London derby against Arsenal next weekend.
