Alasdair Gold provides an update on injured Tottenham duo of Son Heung-min and Steven Bergwijn
In a Q&A for Football.london, Tottenham correspondent Alasdair Gold provided an update on the injured duo of Son Heung-Min and Steven Bergwijn. While it was an encouraging update for the latter, the same could not be said of Son when asked about their availability for the Chelsea game on the weekend.
It has been a tough few days for Spurs on and off the field. Ahead of the game against Crystal Palace, Spurs were dealt with a host of absences. Quarantine aside, Spurs went in without key players such as Son and Bergwijn. Both players returned from the international break due to different injuries.
The duo did not play a part in the game and neither were they named in the matchday squad. Son is currently out with a calf strain while Bergwijn is down with an ankle problem. The problem for Spurs is that they take on Chelsea in a London derby on the weekend and morale might be a bit on the lower side.
There are still questions over the availability of the injured duo and Spurs correspondent for Football.london was asked about the same. Here’s what he replied.
“The current feeling is that Son (calf) and Dier, who picked up a really bad dead leg at Palace, are struggling to be fit for the Chelsea game. At least for Dier it’s not the serious longer term injury it looked at the time. Fingers crossed both improve quicker than expected in the days ahead. For Bergwijn there’s a hope at the moment that he should be in contention for the weekend.”

Son’s update does not inspire confidence and it is unlikely he will be risked if not fit. The Bergwijn issue seems to be encouraging and Tottenham could have some hope for him for the Chelsea game. However, before that, the team will first have to deal with Rennes on Thursday in the Conference League.
