Harry Kane Slammed For Lazy Attempt To Man-Mark Michail Antonio For West Ham Winner Vs Spurs

Harry Kane has come in for huge criticism after a poor attempt to mark Michail Antonio for the West Ham striker's goal against Spurs.

Antonio scored yet again against the North London outfit, the club he had a trial with as a 14-year-old, at the London Stadium in the 72nd minute.

And it was Kane who was at fault. The England captain was supposed to be marking Antonio from Aaron Cresswell's corner but made little effort to do so and allowed the former Sheffield Wednesday man to flick home past Hugo Lloris.

Kane's lack of effort for the goal saw him receiving plenty of stick on social media:

Kane's commitment to the cause at Spurs has been questioned after he tried to leave for Manchester City in the summer and his role in the goal conceded today is not a great look for the 28-year-old.

Former Spurs striker Jermain Defoe defended Kane and suggested he didn't see the ball come in but Graeme Souness had other thoughts and said Kane was "not fully concentrated" and "didn't want to be in that position".

After a second defeat in a week, Spurs now sit sixth in the Premier League.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side take on Burnley in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, before hosting Manchester United on Saturday 30 October.
