“It was men vs boys” – Roy Keane reveals why Chelsea beat Tottenham 3-0

Chelsea beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 on Sunday thanks to goals from Thiago Silva, N’Golo Kante and Antonio Rudiger.

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has explained why the Blues beat Spurs.

“Chelsea were excellent, with real quality and desire,” Keane said on Sky Sports.

“It was men versus boys – I could not believe how bad Spurs were. You can have an off day and obviously some days you lose to quality, but lack of desire.

“We saw it with the second (goal) and probably third – all the goals… talk about wanting to put your body on the line.”

“I was angry watching Spurs today,” Keane added.

“You are going to be under pressure playing a fantastic team, but you stay in the fight by doing the basics, by running out and closing the ball down.

“You learn that when you are five years of age.

“Chelsea are a brilliant team – pure quality. But (Harry) Kane’s body language… oh my goodness. Tottenham players were not doing the basics for the second goal. You’ve got to show desire.

“It’s like a boxer being on the ropes – you’ve got to stay in the fight. You’re going to be under pressure.”
