On a day where Tottenham honour the passing away their all-time goal scorer and club legend Jimmy Greaves, many would have expected the north London club put up a fight against their rival in their EPL clash.
Painfully, Spurs fans witnessed their team succumb to second-half goals from Thiago Silva, N’Golo Kante and Antonio Rudiger thus condemning them to their second consecutive 3-0 defeat as the Blues maintained their unbeaten start to the season.
It became more miserable for Spurs fans because their north London club has started the game brightly but wilted significantly in the second half as Chelsea took control and saw out a comfortable win.
The wretched performance by the White Hart Lane club has left the former Manchester United skipper Roy Keane furious with Tottenham’s second-half performance, labelling the showing ‘men against boys’.
The Keane went further to also take aim at Harry Kane, criticising the striker’s body language.
‘Men vs boys, I couldn’t believe how bad Spurs were,’ Keane told Sky Sports.
‘You can have an off day and sometimes you lose to quality, but the lack of desire, particularly with the second and last goals… The game is 90 mins long, the idea that a team has done well for the first 45, it doesn’t matter.
‘It is over the course of the game. Chelsea are a brilliant team, we saw that with the subs coming on, pure quality.
‘I have no problem with them being short on quality. And I’m including Kane, his body language and performance today, my goodness.
‘I’m pretty angry watching Spurs today. The difference in terms of desire and wanting to win a football match, the Tottenham players were not doing the basics of a game of football.
‘I’m talking about closing someone down and putting your body on the line, that comes from desire, that comes from within.
‘We can criticise the coach and a lot of other stuff, but get to the ball, stop the shot and out your body on the line.’
