Son blow could present unlikely chance for Tottenham youngster Sessgnon

Jose Mourinho will be hard at work trying to figure out how best to set up his team following the hammer injury blow regarding Heung-min Son.

The 27-year-old is set to undergo surgery on a fractured arm, which he supposedly sustained in the very first minute against Aston Villa at the weekend.

It’s a major blow for Spurs, who have already lost key players for the long-term in Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko.

In Kane’s absence, natural left-winger Son was operating as a central striker, so Mourinho now has some thinking to do about how to set up for the rest of the season.

One man who may be hoping for a chance is Ryan Sessegnon, who signed for Spurs for around £25 million last summer (BBC Sport).


The English youngster has been a bit-part player so far this term, but Son’s injury could open a window of opportunity for him.

TBR’s view – Sessegnon to left-wing?

Mourinho may opt to bring Sessegnon in at left-wing, and move one of Dele Alli, Steven Bergwijn or Lucas Moura in-field.

Bergwijn has played wide left in each of the last two games and has impressively massively, but the Dutchman also has experience playing as a central striker.

If that’s the route Mourinho wishes to go down to directly replace Son, then Sessegnon could well be the man to benefit.

This could be his chance to really make his mark, following what’s been a slightly underwhelming season so far.
