Danny Mills has given his reaction to the news that Son Heung-Min may now be fit for Tottenham Hotspur to play Chelsea at home in the Premier League.
The Lowdown: Son could play
The Daily Telegraph journalist Matt Law reported earlier on in the week that Son has ‘not given up’ on trying to get himself fit to face Thomas Tuchel’s team.
Will Son stay at Tottenham next season?
Nuno Espirito Santo told the press on the same day that the winger is ‘improving day by day’ and would be assessed ahead of the game on Sunday afternoon.
The Latest: Mills on Son
“It would be a huge boost.
“He’s a fantastic player, his energy is magnificent. He’s absolutely superb in what he does. He adds so much to the team and that’s what they miss.
“As much as he’s got quality, energy and professionalism. There is so much more about him than being a good player.”
The Verdict: Massive
It would no doubt be a massive lift if Spurs could call on Son, as he could well make the difference against the Blues.
The South Korea international has an exceptional record while playing for the North London club, with no fewer than 109 goals and a further 64 assists in 284 games in total over all competitions, including two goals already this season (Transfermarkt).
Nonetheless, the Lilywhites know that they will have to be at their best to get maximum points against their bitter rivals, who have looked extremely solid particularly defensively so far this term, conceding just once in the league.
