Tottenham star ‘not expected’ to be fit in time to face Chelsea next week

After two goals in his opening three league games, Son is off to a strong start, but that momentum appears to have been disrupted.

Tottenham have not included Son in their match day squad for today’s clash with Crystal Palace after the attacker picked up an injury on international duty.

A battle between Tottenham and Chelsea at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is a huge occasion, so Son will be doing all he can to get back fit and available for it.

At the time of writing, though, things don’t look particularly positive – unless you’re a Chelsea fan, in which case you’ll probably be buzzing…
