Paul Scholes has claimed that Heung-Min Son was ‘angry’ with Harry Kane for not passing him the ball during Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat to West Ham on Sunday, as he told Premier League Productions (24/10/21 at 2:53 pm)

The former Premier League midfielder claimed that it wasn’t a brilliant attacking display from either side at the London Stadium.

But, in the second half, it was Michail Antonio who made use of the chance that was put to him on a plate when he poked home from a corner.

In truth, throughout the game, both sides weren’t creating many clear-cut chances, not taking much risks going forward.

But Scholes felt that one Kane effort, which he opted to shoot when just inside the box and blaze over the bar, wasn’t met with a friendly response from his teammate.

“I don’t think they (Spurs) have been brilliant, attacking-wise,” said Scholes.

“But they have created three or four really good chances – I don’t think it’s a great game, quality-wise all-round, to be honest. Attacking, especially.

“But Tottenham have had chances. Could he (Kane) have laid it back to Son (when inside the box instead of shooting). You can see how angry Son is there.”

One week things are going well for Spurs, then the next it’s all doom and gloom and Nuno Espirito Santo is being questioned.

That’s what will probably happen here, especially given that they were beaten by their London rivals – their fourth defeat to London opponents this term.

Added with that, Nuno isn’t exactly a gung-ho manager who’s style of play is entertaining, regardless of the outcome, in fact that’s far from it.

And given that Spurs sacked a manager that played in a similar way, yet he had a trophy-laden career, then questions will be asked of Nuno a lot quicker, regardless of whether it’s harsh or not.
