Jamie O’Hara says Tottenham were better when Harry Kane wasn’t playing at the start of the season

when Harry Kane hadn’t yet returned to the team.

Sunday’s defeat to Chelsea was the north London club’s second 3-0 loss on the bounce.

They had started the season strongly with three wins, Kane only starting on of those.

Speaking on talkSPORT, former Spurs man O’Hara said: ‘It’s tough one for me as Harry Kane is Mr Tottenham, in my opinion, but I look at his body language and look at the way he’s playing and he’s not playing very well,’ he said.

‘I kind of enjoyed Spurs at the beginning of the season when he didn’t play. I know that sounds bad because he is a great player and he is someone who you need in your team, but he’s come back into the team and we can’t win.

‘When it was [Steven] Bergwijn, [Lucas] Moura and [Heung-min] Son up front, we sat in, we were composed, we soaked up the pressure and tried to hit teams on the counter attack.

‘Harry Kane has come back and he’s trying to do everything. For some parts of the game he’s playing as a holding midfielder!

‘They are doing too much, we need you to play up front and where things can happen.

‘I feel like he’s slowing things down for us a little bit at the minute.

‘You can’t criticise him for what he is and what he’s done for the football club, but at the moment he’s not playing very well for us.’
