Tottenham Hotspur forward Heung-Min Son has not been able to play so far this season, due to suspension.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has told Football London that Heung-Min Son has been ‘unbelievable’ in training.

Son has missed Tottenham’s opening two games, because of a lingering suspension which has hung over from last season.

Tottenham have coped well without Son, as they have taken four points from their first two games.

But the South Korean’s return should make Spurs even more of an attacking threat.

 

And Pochettino thinks that Son will soon be up to speed, as he has done so well on the training pitch.

“I think he was training really, really hard to keep fit and improve in different areas,” he said.

“We are happy in the last few weeks he was unbelievable in the way he was available to train and compete in every single training session and I hope it’s going to help the team from now.”

Whether Son immediately goes back into Tottenham’s starting line-up still remains to be seen.

Spurs face Newcastle United on Sunday and are heavy favourites to win against Steve Bruce’s struggling side.

If Son is picked, he could line-up as a striker alongside Harry Kane if Pochettino opts to go with a diamond, or he could play out wide if Spurs start in a 4-2-3-1 shape.
