Spurs have to wait
Tottenham Hotspur fans may be thrilled that Son Heung-min has avoided military service after winning the Asian games with South Korea, but there’s a catch.
He might have returned to the club, but the supporters will have to wait before seeing him in action.
That’s despite having Liverpool to play this weekend.
Spurs are determined not to push the player too far, and will ease him back in.
Given Son has played a huge amount of games in a short space of time, and finished last season playing through the pain, it’s little wonder.

Problems for Kane
Not only do Spurs have to worry about Son, they may have Kane concerns.
There are also some questions over the fitness of Harry Kane, with many accusing the England player of suffering from burnout.
Kane was rested for the most part as England beat Switzerland. Yet he’s still played a lot of football recently, and could well burnout.
A big chance for Liverpool
Spurs will want to bounce back after a defeat before the international break, but Liverpool have their own agenda.
The Reds have the chance to move even further ahead of their rivals, due to the early kick off time.
They’re already ahead of Man City and United, and are toe to toe with Chelsea.
Klopp will know this, and be determined to send a big message.
Beating Spurs would not only show they’re still at the top of their game, but would also put pressure on the teams below them.
