Dan Kilpatrick provides a damning verdict on Son Heung-min injury
The 27-year-old injured himself in the first minute of the match against Aston Villa at the weekend. The Tottenham attacker’s collision with Ezri Konsa left him with a fractured arm. The club statement has ruled out the player for a number of weeks.
With Harry Kane already out injured, Son had taken up the mantle of leading the Tottenham attack. In spite of the injury, he played all 90 minutes and scored twice to ensure Spurs left Villa Park with all three points.
As if the news wasn’t bad enough, Dan Kilpatrick, football correspondent for the Evening Standard has revealed further troubling news.
According to the journalist, Son’s injury is much worse than revealed and will sideline the Korean for months rather than weeks. However, he also went on to state that the exact prognosis will not be revealed until after the surgery.
#thfc Understand this is a very significant injury. Looking at months rather than weeks but prognosis won't be clear until after surgery.

This will come as a devastating blow for Tottenham who will have to overtly rely on Steven Bergwijn, Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura to carry the goalscoring responsibilities.
With Harry Kane injured, Tottenham failed to sign a striker in January. The decision may now come to bite us, with Troy Parrott the only natural striker in the squad.
