Roy Keane has not held back in his criticism of Tottenham following their 3-0 loss to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

Thiago Silva, N'Golo Kante and Antonio Ruediger all scored in the second half for Thomas Tuchel's side in north London.

Chelsea looked particularly strong in the second half after Tuchel took off Mason Mount and brought on N'Golo Kanté.

Spurs arguably played the best they have all season and yet still lost 3-0 at home.

Keane though wasn't impressed with anything about them.

Speaking on SkySports after the game he blasted their desire and slated their inability to get the basics right.

Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel said he was not happy with his side's first-half performance.

The game was 0-0 at the break and really competitive with Spurs having the better of the chances through Son Heung-min and Harry Kane.

He said they lacked energy in the first 45 minutes as well as relentlessness; saying his players were focusing too much on showing off skills rather than trying to win tackles and battles.

With the win, Chelsea sit top of the Premier League table on alphabetical grounds with the same points and goal difference as Liverpool.
