Former manager Harry Redknapp has questioned new boss Nuno Espirito Santo for his ‘strange’ decision to play out of position against Chelsea. 

Speaking on TalkSPORT, Redknapp said that he was confused by Espirito Santo’s tactics, which saw Kane frequently ‘pulling to the left’ throughout the recent 3-0 home loss against the Blues.

Incidentally, the comments came soon after the England striker had scored against Wolves in the Carabao Cup playing in his more natural central position.

Redknapp explained himself, saying: “I thought it was a strange one. You know, Son plays out there, and Harry plays through the middle.

“Very strange, and obviously for the first 20 minutes or so they were bang in the game, first half hour. But second half, Chelsea completely overran them, didn’t they?”

TIF Thoughts on and Tottenham…

As mentioned earlier, Kane did at least manage to score against Wolves in the club’s Carabao Cup win. This should be of some comfort to the striker, who is yet to net in the this season.

With Tottenham out of form having lost their last two league games, the 28-year-old will be desperate to help his team get back to winning ways.

It’s not just any game up next for Spurs, either. The north London derby – a game that always means so much to both sets of players, fans and managers alike – will surely be at the forefront of Kane’s mind as he looks to get off the mark in the league.

Espirito Santo may well take note of Redknapp’s criticisms and keep Kane as central as possible for that match. But if he was willing to try the tactic against Chelsea, there’s every chance he’ll give it another go against Arsenal.
