Roy Keane has lambasted Tottenham’s display in their 3-0 home defeat to Chelsea, admitting that Spurs’ collapse had left him “angry”.
Despite a robust first-half display, Tottenham folded after the interval following the Blues’ introduction of N’Golo Kante.
“I couldn’t believe how bad Spurs were. You can have an off day and sometimes you lose to quality but there was a lack of desire from Spurs for the second and the third goals,” said Keane.
“I’m pretty angry from watching Spurs today. The difference in desire and wanting to win a football match we see with the second goal. Chelsea won the ball back and Tottenham didn’t do the basics. I’m talking about closing players down and putting your body on the line.
Fellow Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness was equally unimpressed:
“Spurs didn’t look like a team. They were making fundamental mistakes which led to goals. At this level, the highest level, if you don’t do the basics right you will get punished.”
