Tottenham Hotspur head coach, Nuno Espirito Santo has revealed that Heung-min Son had a ‘strange feeling’ ahead of the game against Wolves today but was okay to play.
The South Korean was isolated up front for large parts of the counter and looked out of sorts for the 70 minutes he spent on the pitch.
Son was replaced by Harry Kane towards the end of the game, who arguably had more involvement after coming on than the winger did in the entire game.
Nuno told the press after the game that Son had felt something before kick-off but they decided to start him anyway. He also added that the forward would now be assessed.
Spurs fans will be hoping it is nothing serious as many were looking forward to Kane returning to partner Son, rather than replacing him in the line-up.
When asked about a possible Son injury, Nuno said (Jonathan Veal): “I am sorry I cannot answer. In the warm-up, he had a strange feeling and he was OK to play. Let’s assess him now.”

Spurs Web Opinion:
Son did look as though he was carrying something today. However, even if he was 100% fit, Spurs either need to find a new way of playing with him as the lead striker, or they need to play him alongside someone else. Son can’t win headers and hold the ball up like Kane.
