Paul Scholes has claimed that Heung-Min Son was ‘angry’ with Harry Kane after the striker decided not to pass the ball to the South Korean during Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-0 defeat at West Ham United yesterday afternoon.
The Hammers started the match as the brighter of the two sides in the opening fifteen minutes with Spurs coming back into the match and had chances of their own to go ahead before the half time break.
The former Manchester United midfielder highlighted one piece of play where Kane decided to take on a shot inside the West Ham penalty area, rather than pass to Son which did not garner the most friendly of reactions from his team-mate.
Kane has now failed to score in each of his last five Premier League London derbies, his joint-longest wait for a goal in such fixtures alongside a five-game stint between May and December 2014.
“I don’t think they (Spurs) have been brilliant, attacking-wise,” Scholes told Premier League Productions (24/10/21 at 2:53 pm).
“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.”
Kane hardly covered himself in glory with his performance at the London Stadium yesterday and in fairness to Son, he has more than covered for the England captain’s lack of form in the early part of the season.
Nuno needs to act fast as there appears to be an unhappy camp of players within the dressing room.
