The new season all suddenly feels very real now that the fixtures have been announced.
Tottenham will get their campaign underway with a trip to Newcastle, hoping to avenge the 5-1 defeat they suffered last time they visited St James’ Park. The first game at Wembley will welcome champions Chelsea.
The last thing Spurs need is an injury scare with those games now less than two months away, but a worrying report has emerged out of the international break.
The Daily Mail report that Heung-Min Son suffered a suspected broken arm in South Korea’s defeat to Qatar after falling awkwardly.
The 24-year-old was taken off in the 34th minute looking in serious discomfort. Qatar went on to win the World Cup qualifier 3-2.
Son scored 21 goals for Spurs last season and Mauricio Pochettino will no doubt be keeping a close eye on his fitness. Even if his arm is broken, he could well be back in time for the start of the season on August 12, but it will be a major disruption to his pre-season preparations regardless.
