Tottenham fans delighted with Son return after shock defeat

Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-Min will be returning to the Premier League after South Korea were eliminated from the Asian Cup on Friday, as covered by Sky Sports.

Son’s side were stunned by Qatar in their quarter-final, Abdulaziz Hatem scoring the only goal of the game.

Fresh from clinching victory in the Asian Games in the summer – a result which means Son will not have to serve in the military during his career – South Korea were heavily fancied going into the mid-season tournament.

However, Son will now return to Spurs earlier than expected after their surprise elimination.

The news will come as a welcome boost to manager Mauricio Pochettino, who has struggled with a spate of injuries in recent weeks.

Harry Kane and Dele Alli are both currently absent, while Lucas Moura only returned to full fitness last week, making his comeback in Thursday’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg clash with Chelsea.

The Brazilian, however, missed a penalty in the shootout as Spurs were eliminated after a 2-1 defeat on the night (2-2 on aggregate).

Pochettino’s men face Crystal Palace in the FA Cup on Sunday, before a Premier League clash with Watford in midweek.

And Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to express their joy at Son’s imminent return.
