Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed forward Heung-Min Son looks set for an extended period on the sidelines after sustaining a hamstring strain in the side’s 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.
The South Korean forward was replaced at half-time by Steven Bergwijn.
“It’s an injury. We’ll have him out for a while. It’s his hamstring,” said Mourinho.
Asked if Son is expected to be out for a ‘long’ time, Mourinho replied: “Yes.”
Chelsea will take on Tottenham Hotspur in a Carabao Cup game on Tuesday after beating Barnsley 6-0 in the previous round.
