Tottenham’s defeat against Arsenal on Sunday was a bitter blow for Spurs and the derby defeat was compounded by the fact that Heung-min Son came off with what looked to be a hamstring problem.
Son pulled up with less than twenty minutes gone on the clock and had to make way for Erik Lamela, who certainly had an eventful day, scoring one of the goals of his career with a brilliant rabona before being sent off in the second half.
Jose Mourinho did not sound optimistic about the South Korean’s injury after the game, admitting that muscular problems could be complicated.
However, Alasdair Gold has now confirmed that the 28-year-old’s injury is not as bad as initially feared and that he could make a swift return to action.
Gold said on Twitter that Son could even be back in time for Tottenham’s trip to Vllla Park on Sunday, with the journalist revealing that Spurs might prevent the forward from going away on international duty later this month in order to recover completely.
There is also an interesting dynamic in South Korea having a friendly match in Japan next week. In an ideal world Spurs would want Son to recover from the injury and recharge over the next fortnight or so. If he were to play at Villa the case for that to happen lessens somewhat.

I always fear the worst with hamstring problems and so this certainly comes as great news for Spurs. Having Son out for a month or two would have been disastrous given how crucial a month April is shaping out to be for the club.
