Harry Kane’s decision to fly to Augusta for the final day of the Masters last weekend must be questioned after his sluggish performance in Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat at home to Brighton, says Gabby Agbonlahor.
Spurs unexpectedly lost ground in the race for top four against Brighton on Saturday, with Leandro Trossard’s 90th-minute winner handing Antonio Conte’s men their first defeat in five matches.
The north London club appeared in pole position to secure Champions League qualification after racking up four straight wins and moving into fourth place, but this weekend’s shock slip-up has kept Manchester United and Arsenal in with a chance of catching them.

Kane was one of several Spurs stars who underperformed in the defeat, which saw them fail to register a single shot on target in 90 minutes.
The England captain looked well out of sorts on Saturday, raising concerns over his decision to make an almost 8,000-mile round trip to Augusta for the final day of the Masters last Sunday.
Agbonlahor believes questions should be asked of Kane after his lethargic display against Brighton, insisting he appeared ‘jetlagged’ on the day.
‘You know Harry Kane for instance, I’m his biggest fan,’ the former Aston Villa forward said on talkSPORT, ‘but if you’re flying out from the Aston Villa game to the Masters, doing that travelling and coming back and then putting in a performance like today, questions have got to be asked of Harry Kane.

‘Was that the right thing for him to go and do? Because today they were toothless going forward Spurs, no shots on target.
‘Every time they seem to get a bit of an edge against Arsenal and Manchester United they throw it away.
‘100 per cent he would have had approval [to go], but the way he played today was like he was jetlagged. It wasn’t the Harry Kane we’re used to seeing.
‘Every time they seem to get a lead in the race for top four they keep letting Manchester United back into it. Especially Arsenal as well.
‘So as much as we keep looking at fixtures and what the results are gonna be, these teams can lose any game any week.’
