Tottenham injury blow

Ahead of Monday’s derby, the Lilywhites have been dealt a blow on the injury front.

This came after Heung-min Son confirmed he wanted to play for South Korea this week despite ongoing injury struggles.

The forward was rested for last week’s 4-0 win over Tunisia but played the full 90 minutes of Tuesday’s 6-0 win over Vietnam despite visibly limping at half-time.

When asked about his injury after South Korea’s win, Son said: “Injuries are an inevitable part of living as a footballer.

“I was worried about whether to play in today’s game, but I couldn’t accept coming to Korea and not playing in front of the fans.

“I discussed with the coach and told him I would play in the game. I couldn’t participate much in training, but I’m grateful to the coach for respecting my decision.”

Speaking about his decision to keep Son on the pitch, manager Jurgen Klinsmann said: “The original plan was to play 90 minutes. The muscle injury did not recur, and there was no problem when checked at the 60th minute.”
