Harry Kane believes Tottenham Hotspur lacked energy in their goalless draw with Chelsea
Harry Kane felt Tottenham Hotspur lacked energy after a demanding week in Sunday’s goalless draw with Chelsea.
Heung min-son and Mousa Demebele forced saves from Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic at White Hart Lane, whilst Kane was limited to long-range attempts in the derby.
At the other end, Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris made a smart save to deny Chelsea forward Eden Hazard in the second half in north London.
Spurs have played three games in the past seven days after a 4-1 win against West Ham United was followed by a 1-0 victory over Qarabag in Azerbaijan on Thursday night.
And Kane conceded that Mauricio Pochettino’s side were lacking energy on Sunday afternoon.
Tough week! Didn't feel we had the same energy today as usual. But still not a bad point. Recover now for West Brom! pic.twitter.com/CASRsH0rVL

Kane’s recent goal-scoring run came to an end against the defending Premier League champions as Gary Cahill and Kurt Zouma marshalled the Spurs man.
The Spurs and England striker has still scored seven times in his last five Premier League games.
