The South Korean suffered a foot injury in Tottenham’s 4-1 triumph over Manchester City and was expected to be out for several weeks.
Spurs haven’t yet provided details on the injury but the Standard’s report claims it isn’t a broken bone, suggesting his return could come sooner than predicted.
Mauricio Pochettino is known to slowly ease players back in from injury due to the physical demands of his pressing system – as shown by Christian Eriksen’s re-introduction – meaning Son’s inclusion against the Reds would be a surprise.
The 23-year old has made an excellent start to life at Spurs, scoring three goals in his four appearances so far and adding an injection of pace and energy to the front line, and Pochettino will hope to have him back fit and firing as soon as possible.
Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb have yet to be declared fit after their respective injuries but the Standard claim that at least one of those could make it in time for the Liverpool clash – handy timing given Eric Dier’s recent suspension.
