Tottenham Hotspur remain the only London team training this week, and Jose Mourinho has received a huge boost to his squad with forward Heung-min Son nearing a return.
The South Korean talisman was due back at Hotspur Way to do rehab work yesterday, which could provide major encouragement if the season does indeed resume next month.
Football.London reporter Alasdair Gold relayed the news on Twitter this morning, he said:
He was expected back to do rehab at the training ground at the start of this week.

There’s currently a suspension on all English fixtures but the fact that Son can come in and start to rebuild fitness ahead of a potential comeback is major news.
Spurs have lost five of their last six and have suffered in his absence. They have it all to do if they are to secure European football next season – Mourinho’s men sit seven points behind the top four and are out of all cup competitions.
The 27-year-old has netted 16 goals in all competitions this season, only second to fellow injured star Harry Kane, so his return would be most welcome in their quest to salvage something from this campaign.
