Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest update to emerge concerning the current fitness of Lilywhites attacker Heung-min Son.
This comes after Spurs journalist Jonathan Veal shared a post on his official Twitter page relaying news originally shared by Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo during his press conference after the club’s 3-0 defeat against Crystal Palace.
On the subject of Son, who picked up an injury during the recent international break and was not involved in the game at Selhurst Park as a result, Espirito Santo said that Son “does not look well” but is hopeful that he will be available for the club’s upcoming Premier League clash against Chelsea at the weekend.
This post then gathered a number of replies from Tottenham supporters who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on this latest update.
So, what did these Spurs fans have to say in response to Espirito Santo’s comments about Son?
“It just gets worse and worse”
“But will he get a game if fit? Nuno likes 4 holding midfielders so maybe son won’t start.”
“does it matter – he plays boring 3 CDMs in a narrow low block, you could have messi, haaland and mbappe as your front 3 and they still wouldnt touch the ball”
“What. A. Mess.”
“Just goes to show what a shambles the transfer window was.”
“no son no party”
Looking at the replies to this post, it seems as though these Spurs fans are not happy to hear that there’s still no certainty around Son’s injury and that he may well miss the game against Chelsea as a result.
Do you think Spurs can beat Chelsea without Son?
Given how Son has scored two out of the three goals Spurs have managed to register so far this season and is currently their highest-rated player in terms of performance according to WhoScored, it’s easy to see why these fans would want him fit and available to play as much as possible.
Moving forward, we feel that if Son is fit to play against Chelsea at the weekend, this would give them more of a chance to beat their London rivals than if they didn’t have him.
