Agbonlahor shares 'worrying' Tottenham prediction after unprecedented Kane reveal
Harry Kane looks like he is “sulking” and is fed up with his Tottenham teammates, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker claimed it was “worrying times” for Spurs after their 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace.
As reported by Opta, Kane did not have a shot or a touch in the Palace box at Selhurst Park – the first time he has failed to do either while completing 90 minutes in the Premier League.
Tottenham had started the season strongly with three consecutive 1-0 wins but Saturday’s game came as a reality check.
“Nothing is going to change from Spurs under Jose Mourinho to Spurs under Nuno Espirito Santo,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“They are both similar style managers, defensive-minded.

“To play a diamond against Palace when Palace are so strong out wide just doesn’t make sense. If there is ever a game where you double up, you do it against Zaha at the weekend.
“Strange tactics from Nuno and to be honest, their team isn’t great even though Spurs fans were getting excited at the start of the season.
“Without Son, he looked very ordinary. Harry Kane didn’t look interested, he looked like he was sulking and fed up with his team.
“It’s worrying times for Spurs so I think they’ll get found out. It’s going to be the same old Spurs, seventh or eighth and no trophies.
“Kane not having a touch in the opposition box is harsh on him. That’s down to his teammates to create opportunities for him.
“You also have to give Crystal Palace credit because defensively they were outstanding.”
