Some Tottenham fans on social media are over the moon upon hearing that Son Heung-min has travelled with the squad to Manchester for their clash against United this afternoon.
Son has started the season in tremendous form, having found the back of the net on five occasions, with four of those strikes coming in Tottenham’s last away league game against Southampton.
The South Korean was withdrawn at half-time against Newcastle last week, with Mourinho admitting after the game that he had a hamstring problem.
Speaking after Tottenham’s 7-2 thrashing of Maccabi Haifa on Thursday, Mourinho refused to rule out the 28-year-old being fit for the clash against Red Devils, although he did admit it was unlikely (Football.London).
With reports emerging that Son travelled with the squad up North (Manchester Evening News), some Spurs fans are convinced that the winger will tear the Man United defence apart.
A few even insisted that they were always confident that the winger would be fit for the match and that Mourinho was only playing mind games by talking about his hamstring problem.
Game over for United

I had a feeling the whole “hamstring injury” stuff after the Newcastle game was just Mourinho’s way of handling his squad rotation. I got flack for saying that after the match but it makes sense, he was able to rest Son 2 matches w no questions asked, smart idea👏👏👏 https://t.co/PZ2UgFNaDb

Jose up to his old mind games as always. One week ago Son is out for a long time, now he’s with the squad in Manchester. Be scared Ole https://t.co/1HNPjzohbG

Spurs Web Opinion
Jose likes to have pace in attack and so I cannot imagine why Bergwijn would have played both Tuesday and Thursday if the Spurs boss did not think Son had a chance of playing against United. While I am not sure that the South Korean will start, I am convinced that he will play a part in the match, possibly replacing someone like Lamela (who could be given the nod to start) around the hour mark.
