Harry Kane looked a shadow of himself during Tottenham's 3-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, and his stats from the game prove just how poor a game he had.

The England international wanted to move to Manchester City during the summer transfer window, but a switch failed to materialise. And while the striker has claimed he is fully committed to Spurs, his body language on the pitch against the Gunners wasn't very convincing.

He is yet to score a goal for Tottenham in the Premier League this season, and despite being the top scorer in the North London derby fixture, Kane did not offer Spurs anything.

Far from creating chances from his side, Kane lost possession a total of 11 times in 90 minutes - more than the successful passes he achieved.

He finished the game with a worrying 46% pass accuracy, four shots, zero chances created, and zero dribbles.

He had one big chance in the second half but rolled the ball wide, squandering away one of the best opportunities all game. Kane was also at fault for Arsenal's third goal, scored by Bukayo Saka in the first half.

He gave the ball away cheaply and ran back, trying to make amends, but his tackle in the box led the ball falling back to Saka, who calmly slotted the ball past Hugo Lloris.

Gary Neville claimed "something isn't right with Kane" after his underwhelming display. "Harry Kane should have scored two or three goals, could've had a penalty," he said on Sky Sports.

"He's not right, Harry Kane. There's obviously something not right with him at the moment. He doesn't look happy at all. Harry doesn’t look himself in terms of his body language, he doesn’t look happy, he looks like he’s carrying the situation from the summer and he still could’ve had two or three goals and a penalty."
