PREMIER - Nuno: Kane's poor start to season due to lack of cohesion

Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo feels his team's lack of togetherness is to blame for Harry Kane's dismal start to the season.

Kane has yet to score in the Premier League this season, with some suggesting he is suffering from a hangover from his unsuccessful effort to force a move to Manchester City.

Kane claimed he had a "gentleman's agreement" with Tottenham to depart after the club refused to transfer him to the Premier League winners.

In the defeat against Crystal Palace on September 11, he went for 90 minutes without firing a shot for the first time in his Premier League career.

However, Nuno conceded Kane has been hampered by Tottenham's lack of attacking threat ahead of Wednesday's League Cup clash against Wolves.

"The realisation that we are not able to build enough situations is the problem that we have," Nuno said.

"All individual situations that happen with the players - touches, actions - are a product of the team.

"At the same time we've got to analyse and we look at the problems we have in defence.

"It's the same approach in terms of analysing the situation. It has to do with the team. Our main focus must always be the team."
