Tottenham Hotspur winger Son Heung-min a doubt to face Liverpool next weekend

In what could be a major boost for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, Son Heung-min of Tottenham could be a doubt for the next weekend as per The Independent.

The player walked off the pitch following a head collision with one of Marseille’s defenders and a decision will be made on his availability after a medical assessment. Son this season, has made 19 appearances, scoring five goals and making two assists across all competitions. Even though he has struggled at times, the South Korean is a bonafide match-winner.

Apart from Son, Spurs will also be without the services of Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski, both of whom are out for a number of weeks. It will be a massive boost for a Reds’ defence that has looked porous this season.

In 13 appearances across all competitions against Liverpool, Son has four goals. With him being a doubt, it could swing the momentum in our favour. Meanwhile, Cristian Romero recently came back from injury and could feature against the Merseysiders.

Liverpool have a fantastic record against Tottenham of late and have not lost to the North London outfit since October 2017. Last season though, both games in the league ended in a draw, something that cost us, dear, in the title race.
