Tottenham have been dealt a major blow as their star forward Son Heung Min was ruled out for “a number of weeks” with a broken arm.
The South Korean reportedly sustained the injury in the dramatic 3-2 win over Aston Villa on Sunday, February 16.
In a club statement on Tuesday, the North London club said, “The South Korea international suffered the injury during our win against Aston Villa on Sunday.

Following surgery, our medical staff shall be reviewing management options for Son’s rehabilitation with the player expected to be sidelined for a number of weeks."
Other reports from England indicate the fracture could be around the elbow and such an injury could take up to months to recover from.
Son sustained the injury after a collision with Villa’s Ezri Konsa on Sunday.
Despite the collision and receiving treatment on the field, Son soldiered on and managed to score twice, including a dramatic winner at the very tail end of the game.
The 27-year old has been a shining light for Mourinho, particularly with the lengthy injury to top scorer Harry Kane who suffered a torn hamstring in January.
Notably, Son has scored in his past five appearances for Spurs.

His injury means he is certain to miss Spurs’ Champions League tie with Leipzig as well as a crunch match against Chelsea on Saturday, February 22.
Mourinho will now have to make the most out of his limited attacking options, which include Lucas Moura, 22-year-old Dutchman Steven Bergwijn as well as Republic of Ireland international Troy Parrott, 18 who are the only fit forwards at his disposal at the moment.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Son Heung-Min has been a jewel for Tottenham in the past few seasons at the London club and the striker has lots of money to spend on cars.
The Korean international who currently earns £110,000-per-week has a fleet of exclusive cars parked in his garage worth a whopping £1.5million.
