Heung-min Son could be a huge miss for Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur will play their first “home” fixture of the Premier League at Wembley Stadium on Saturday when they meet Fulham.

Spurs will be looking to build on their opening day victory against Newcastle United last weekend and will entertain one of last season’s promoted clubs in a London Derby.

However, the clash will not be easy for Mauricio Pochettino, as according to a match preview by Sky Sports, he will be without a couple of key men for the clash.

Heung-min Son is away on international duty with South Korea as he looks to help his country lift the Asian Cup.

The winger, who has been influential for Spurs, could be a huge miss to Tottenham but Pochettino will be hoping he has players that can step up in his absence.

One man that could fill in that role is Erik Lamela, however, it is unlikely he will feature for the north London outfit as he has just returned from an injury, as has Harry Winks.

Victor Wanyama is another that remains unavailable for Pochettino as he continues to recover from a knee injury.

The Verdict:

Tottenham will be looking to continue their solid start to the Premier League season when they face Fulham on Saturday.

The Craven Cottage outfit could prove to be a tricky test for Pochettino’s side after they have had an active transfer window, bringing in a number of quality additions.

Son could be a huge miss for Spurs, however, the club will feel confident that they have the players able to step up in his absence.
