Tottenham Injury News: Son Heung-min could be back for Aston Villa clash
The 28-year-old Son had to come off with an injury in Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League against Arsenal this past weekend. Speaking after the game, manager Jose Mourinho had confirmed that it was a muscular problem that could take time to heal.
“That’s football, I don’t know how long it is. Is muscular. Muscular is always not easy. He’s a guy that normally he recovers very, very well from any kind of injury. And that’s football. That’s accumulation of matches.”
However, in what will be a positive piece of news for Tottenham fans, it is said that the injury to Son is not as serious as initially feared and he should definitely be available for our first game after the international break against Newcastle United.
In fact, the report goes as far as claiming that Spurs might not have to wait for that long to see him in action as he could be fit for the game against Aston Villa at the weekend itself. However, Tottenham might not want to risk rushing him back ahead of a busy run-in period.

Despite him picking up an injury on Sunday, Son was named in the South Korea national team squad for their friendly encounter against Japan. Should the 28-year-old feature against Aston Villa, he will most likely have to travel to Yokohama for the encounter next week.
Son has been in impressive form this season. The 28-year-old has plundered 18 goals and 16 assists in 41 games in all competitions. His fitness will be critical for Spurs if we are to win a trophy come the end of the season.
