Nuno Espirito Santo gives latest injury update on Tottenham Hotspur duo Son Heung-min and Eric Dier

Speaking after Tottenham Hotspur lost to Crystal Palace on Saturday (h/t football.london), Nuno Espirito Santo remained coy over the injuries sustained by Son Heung-min and Eric Dier.

The South Korean international was a doubt for the London derby against Crystal Palace and did not feature in the 3-0 loss at Selhurst Park. As for Dier, the English centre-back picked up a nasty-looking injury during the match.

The centre-back problem would only be confounded by Japhet Tanganga’s red card in the 58th minute of the match. Speaking about Son, the former Wolves boss did not much away about the 29-year-old’s availability for the all-important London derby against Chelsea.

“I don’t know. He doesn’t look well. Stevie, let’s wait and see this week, but hopefully they will improve and be available for the next game, let’s see”.

Dier and Son injury headache

His answer regarding Dier’s injury was expected. After all, it hadn’t been long since the injury was suffered and the fans would only know more about the 27-year-old Englishman’s situation as time passes.

“Let’s wait and see, let’s wait and see [when asked about Dier].”

The entire excitement level of the fanbase after three perfect 1-0 scorelines in their opening three league games was brought down on Saturday against Patrick Vieira’s men. However, much of it can be attributed to silly individual mistakes.

Tanganga’s red-card wasn’t a death sentence in itself. It was only after Ben Davies’ handball 17 minutes from time that the hosts broke the deadlock, via a Wilfried Zaha penalty.

Spurs now have a game against Stade Rennais to look forward to in the UEFA Europa Conference League before a daunting London derby against the in-form Blues on 19th September. Hopefully, both Son and Dier are match fit by then.
