Graeme Souness absolutely savaged Tottenham striker Harry Kane for his role in West Ham United’s goal at the London Stadium this afternoon (Sky Sports, 3:53pm).
The Hammers beat Tottenham 1-0 in what was an incredibly hard-fought London derby this afternoon.
Michail Antonio made the difference with a well-taken goal from a brilliant Aaron Cresswell corner in the 71st minute.
Tottenham dominated the ball for large spells of the game but on the balance of play, West Ham deserved to win.
Spurs never really looked like scoring.
And that’s testament to our defenders and midfield plays, considering just how many match-winners Tottenham had on the pitch.
One of those match-winners is obviously Harry Kane. The 28-year-old wasn’t at the races today though, and he played a role in his side conceding.
Antonio beat the stagnant Kane to the ball from Cresswell’s corner.
Graeme Souness absolutely savages Tottenham ace Harry Kane after West Ham United goal
The Spurs ace just hasn’t looked himself this season and today was yet another performance to forget for Harry.
Souness absolutely ripped into the 28-year-old striker for his role in West Ham’s eventual winner:
“I have to go back to Harry Kane for that goal, he’s more obsessed with the striker not getting there rather than him going to attack the ball. Maybe I’m digging him out unnecessarily in some peoples’ eyes. Is that where Harry Kane is right now? Not fully concentrated, that looks like he didn’t want to be in that position. Just attack the ball son.”
That’s a fair assessment from Souness to be fair.
Kane just looked like he didn’t want to know this afternoon – much like he has done all season long so far.
Perhaps Tottenham should have sold him in the summer. Because they won’t get anything like £130 million odd if he keeps playing like this.
Whilst Kane continues to struggle, Antonio carries on producing week after week. And long may that continue.
