Tottenham Injury Update: Return dates for Son, Kane and Sissoko

It was not a happy return to Stamford Bridge as Jose Mourinho’s side fell 2-1 to Chelsea in the English Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Goals from Oliver Giroud and Marcos Alonso gave the Blues the lead before an Antonio Rudiger own goal gave Spurs hope going into stoppage time. Tottenham had a number of players our injured and their absence was keenly felt especially in attack.

Mourinho has no strikers to choose from with Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son both injured. The duo accounts for fifty percent of the team’s goals this season and their loss could not have come at a worse time.

Moussa Sissoko and Juan Foyth are also injured while Erik Lamela is still returning to full fitness. Tottenham are currently in sixth spot, four points off Chelsea in fourth. We take a look at some of the injury updates post the loss to Chelsea. (h/t Football.London)
