Kane barely threatened in the second half. He is yet to find the net in four Premier League matches so far.

His performance also received criticism from Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville. and that ‘alarm bells’ should be ringing for Tottenham chiefs.

But Phillips has downplayed rumours that this summer’s transfer saga has affected .

: “I’m sure it will come good for Kane. He can have slow starts to seasons and then bang, all of a sudden he hits form. Before you know it he will be the top scorer in the league again.

“I have no issues with him after what happened in the summer with Manchester City. I don’t think that’s having an effect on his performances.

“A little bit of it will be him adapting his game as he gets older which frustrates me in truth. I want to see him on the last man, running in behind and scoring goals. I’m less keen on him playing in a deeper role but as players get older that tends to be the case.

“There should be no worries about Kane. Spurs will create opportunities. Kane just needs to get himself into the box more.

“I have no doubt he’ll be at the top of the goalscoring charts come the end of the season.”

Reacting to the Chelsea defeat, Nuno Espirito Santo told reporters: “There were a lot of things that went wrong. Let’s start with the first half – I think it was a good game, competitive. We were on the the front foot, started pressing high, creating problems and had chances.

“In the second half, the set-piece and goal changes the game. Then it becomes much harder, the game totally changed and Chelsea took control and were the better team in the second half.

“It’s difficult, but I’m proud of the first half and of all the game because we had troubles in team and the players went to their limits.”

Kane should’ve pushed harder for Man City move, says Merson

Tottenham striker Harry Kane should have ‘pushed harder’ for a transfer to Manchester City in the summer transfer window, according to Paul Merson.

The England captain notably wanted a move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with a transfer to Man City rumoured all summer.

However, a deal failed to materialise and .



The 28-year-old is without a Premier League goal this season and Spurs have suffered two 3-0 league defeats in a row.

And Merson feels that Kane might be regretting his decision to stay, : “If you’re Harry Kane, you’re standing up front thinking, ‘Should I have really pushed a little bit harder? Should I have?’

“At the end of the day, you’ve got to think of your future. There’s no point sitting there thinking, ‘I don’t want to be disliked’, ‘I don’t want people to think that I’m ungrateful’ and all that.

“He’s done an unbelievable job for . He needed to move on.”

Merson added: “He’s got to think of his future. This lad deserves to win trophies.

“He’s a phenomenal footballer and I think he should have pushed and pushed to get that move.

“He wouldn’t have become a bad person; I think people would have understood.”

The former striker also believes City could go back in for the Kane in January.

“At the moment, when I look at Man City, Man City need Harry Kane, for me,” he said.

“For me, he’s the best centre-forward in the league by a distance and I really mean that, even though plays for Tottenham, I do mean that.

“I think Man City need to get him, maybe even if it comes down to January, I think he needs to move on for his career.

“He needs to sit with his grandchildren in 20-30 years’ time and they’re sitting on his lap and he goes, ‘Yeah, I won this, this and this’.

“At the end of the day, if you stay at Tottenham, you’ve got to win the Golden Boot and that looks a million miles away as well, at the moment.”
