Gary Neville has claimed that Harry Kane’s form is not the only thing Tottenham have to worry about but also Son Heung-min’s, with the pundit suggesting the South Korean does not look himself.
Sunday proved to be a day to forget for Tottenham as they were comfortably beaten 3-1 in the North London Derby at the Emirates.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men were blown away by the home side in the first half-hour of the game and the defensive issues will be a major source of concern for the Portuguese coach, with his side now having conceded three in each of their last three Premier League outings.
Spurs also once again struggled to create clear-cut chances, with Kane having another poor match.
The England captain is yet to open his account in the Premier League this season, and he has been accused of lacking energy and motivation following his failed move to Manchester City in the summer.
Kane’s strike partner, Son, did find the back of the net late on but he also hardly threatened the Gunners defence for much of the game.
Neville has claimed that Son’s body language did not look right at the Emirates.
The pundit told Sky Sports Premier League (7:26 pm, September 26, 2021): “He (Kane) doesn’t look happy. He is not himself, neither is Son. I am not just singling out him, by the way.
“Son is not himself. Son and him, they look like they have had their balloons burst at a party as a kid.”

The transfer saga over the summer has not only affected Kane but also seems to have had an impact on dressing room morale. As soon as Arsenal scored their first, you could see several of the Tottenham players’ heads drop.
