Roy Keane tore into Harry Kane’s body language, after Tottenham Hotspur were soundly defeated 3-0 by Chelsea at home.
Goals from Thiago Silva, N’Golo Kante, and Antonio Rudiger secured an impressive victory for Thomas Tuchel’s side at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Although the Lilywhites were the better team, Chelsea won the second-half. They overcame a poor opening 45 minutes to take control of the match.
While Spurs’ second half performance left much to be desired, Roy Keane earmarked Kane for some extra blame after the match.
“I’ve no problem with Tottenham being short of quality, but even Kane’s body language today, his performance today, Kane, oh my goodness,” said the former Manchester United captain.
“I’m pretty angry watching Spurs there, you talk about Football, the second goal the difference between desire and wanting to win a football match we saw that.
“I can’t believe how poor Spurs were but you can have an off day and lose to quality; lack of desire like we saw with the second and probably third, all the goals.
Silva opened the scoring with fine header from Marcos Alonso’s header, while Kante doubled the lead soon after with a long range deflected effort.

Rudiger added extra gloss to the victory in the dying minutes with a sweeping finish to confound Spurs to their second consecutive 3-0 defeat.
Keane added: “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.
“Chelsea had an amazing team you seen it with the substitutions they brought on, pure quality.
“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.”
