Roy Keane has blasted Tottenham and wantaway striker Harry Kane over their dismal performance against Chelsea as they fell apart to suffer a second consecutive 3-0 defeat.

After a robustly defensive first-half display, N’Golo Kante’s introduction at the interval saw Spurs completely fold as he scored in between Thiago Silva’s opener and Antonio Rudiger’s injury-time third.

Spurs are suffering from a number of high-profile absentees through injury, but they were not shown any sympathy from Keane, who slammed the team’s “lack of desire” and admitted watching them play made him “angry”.

“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.

“A lot of the time it’s about who wants to head the ball. Spurs don’t have players who want to defend and head the ball. They needed to put their bodies on the line.

“There’s no use doing it for 45 minutes. You’ve got to do it for the duration of the game. Chelsea have a brilliant team.”

Keane saved special criticism for Kane, who unsuccessfully attempted to push through a transfer to Manchester City during the recent window.

“Kane’s body language and his performance today… oh my goodness! He has scored goals this season for his country but for me today it was more his body language.

“He’s your top man and the guy you’d hang your hat on even when you’re having an off day. That’s when you’ve got to create an argument and knock somebody over. I never see him digging anyone out, ever.

“My concern is that there’s a bit of a hangover from the summer.

“You want your striker to lead the line. I’ve not got the stats to hand but I don’t remember too many sprints or any chances. Like Ronaldo today, strikers do depend on others creating chances for them but there’s more to it than that.

“If he’s not doing his job, drag him off. You’ve got to put a marker down to the player.”
