Tottenham Hotspur have ‘growing hope’ that Son Heung-min and Steven Bergwijn will both be available to face Chelsea on Sunday.
That’s according to the London Evening Standard, who claim that Tottenham could have the drop back in the coming days.
Eric Dier’s status is unknown after a thigh injury against Crystal Palace.
With Son and Bergwijn potentially back though, Tottenham fans would feel a tad more confident against the Blues.
Welcome good news for Tottenham
It’s been a testing couple of weeks for Tottenham.
Nuno Espirito Santo has had to deal with Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso heading off with Argentina. The pair were sent away from Brazil and are now training in Croatia.
Oliver Skipp picked up a knock in the international break, as did Son and Bergwijn.
Then Tottenham lost 3-0 at Crystal Palace in a dreadful display. Tottenham just never got going, with Dier injured and then Japhet Tanganga sent off.
With so much bad news coming of late, Tottenham would gladly take some good news with Son and Bergwijn.
Son and Bergwijn can cause problems for Tottenham
We all know how good Son is; outside of Harry Kane, Son is arguably Tottenham’s most important player.
Bergwijn endured a tough campaign last season but has looked bright under Nuno. The Dutchman has so much speed and trickery, but just needs to find the end product.
In pre-season, Son actually set up Bergwijn to score against – you guessed it – Chelsea.
Having the pair in action against the Blues again would be ideal right now, and they have already shown they can hurt Chelsea. Nuno will be hoping that they can do it again.
