Tottenham Hotspur have been hit with a hammer blow after revealing Son Heung-Min has suffered a broken arm.
The match-winner scored twice in Sunday’s win over Aston Villa, including his 94th-minute winner, but he picked up an arm injury the first half.
Son, who played through the pain, was seen holding his arm as he answered questions from Sky Sports alongside Toby Alderweireld at Villa Park.
The forward suffered the injury during the first half of the encounter at Villa Park, which required treatment on the field and during the half-time break.
The Athletic reports the injury is to the same arm that he fractured while playing for South Korea in June 2017, when he missed two months after undergoing surgery to his right arm.
A Spurs statement read: “The South Korea international suffered the injury during our win against Aston Villa on Sunday.
“Following surgery, our medical staff shall be reviewing management options for Son’s rehabilitation with the player expected to be sidelined for a number of weeks.”
The Athletic believed Son will be missing for up to two months and will join Harry Kane on the treatment table.
