Taking to Twitter, reliable reporter Dan Kilpatrick of The Evening Standard has shared yet more injury news involving Tottenham Hotspur superstar Son Heung-min.
The Lowdown: Spurs sweating over Son…
Lilywhites boss Nuno Espirito Santo has been cryptic to say the very least in regards to Son’s fitness whilst stating that he is yet to receive an official diagnosis by the club.
The 29-year-old injured himself in training when on international duty with South Korea during the last break, causing him to miss Tottenham’s return to Premier League action against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday as Nuno’s side crashed to a 3-0 defeat.
Sharing the latest on Son, Kilpatrick has now dropped an update – and it doesn’t look good for Spurs, who must also cope with injuries to Steven Bergwijn and Eric Dier.
The Latest: Kilpatrick shares Son update…
Taking to Twitter, the reporter has shared some news on the superstar forward in what could be a major blow for manager Nuno prior to next Sunday’s showdown with Champions League holders Chelsea.
Kilpatrick claimed that, after missing the Palace game on Saturday, Son isn’t expected to be fit for Spurs’ clash against their west London rivals at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next weekend either.
“Hear Son not fit today and not expected to be for Chelsea”, the journalist explained on social media prior to the Selhurst Park defeat.
The Verdict: Major blow…
If the winger isn’t fit for next week’s all-London clash, it’s safe to say this comes as a major blow for Nuno and Spurs supporters.
Bar Harry Kane, the South Korea ace marked himself out as a real key player for Tottenham last season – finishing second in the squad when it comes to goals and assists combined (WhoScored). He also has two goals already this term and has been the club’s best performer in the early weeks of the campaign according to WhoScored metrics.
Furthermore, he was named in the Premier League PFA Team of the Year alongside Kane for 2020/21, leaving Nuno with a gaping hole going forward as he aims to get one over on the European champions next weekend.
