Son Heung-min an injury doubt for Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League clash vs Liverpool
Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min could be an injury doubt for Spurs’ Premier League clash against Liverpool at N17 on Sunday (6 November).
The South Korea international expectedly started in our crucial UEFA Champions League clash against Olympique de Marseille on Tuesday night (1 November).
However, he was subbed off in the first half. Son looked wobbly as he exited the pitch after a collision with Marseille’s Chancel Mbemba.
Spurs won the game 2-1 after goals from Clement Lenglet and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and qualified for the knockout rounds as group winners. Speaking in his post-match interview (h/t the Independent), assistant manager Cristian Stellini gave an update on Son.
“In this moment we don’t know. We have to wait for a medical assessment. Sonny feels better now. I saw him in the dressing room, he celebrated with us.”
“We are not sure if he is concussed. It is Son’s face. His eye is a bit swollen.”
Spurs will need to produce paperwork from the medical staff to clear Son from the possibility of having faced a concussion. If he is indeed concussed, then it is obvious that he will be a doubt for the clash against the Reds.
It is said that the medical assessment will be today (2 November). Hopefully, there’s good news for Spurs fans.
This is going to be our last match before the FIFA World Cup in Qatar and we would want to go into the break strongly. Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison have already been sidelined for a number of weeks with their respective fitness issues.
