Tottenham Hotspur’s huge 3-2 win over Aston Villa during the weekend was a bittersweet one. The victory means they moved to within a point of fourth-placed Chelsea – who were beaten by Manchester United over 24 hours later – in the Premier League table ahead of their trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday. However, Son Heung-min fractured his arm and now requires surgery and will miss the Champions league tie against RB Leipzig and Jose Mourinho thinks he could miss the rest of the season:
?? Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho on Heung-Min Son’s injury keeping him out for the season:
?"I don't count on him to play again this season, he's very optimistic, I hope he's right, in my mind I'm not thinking about that".

And Tottenham fans were quick to find when and where the injury occurred and it seemed to occur 54 seconds into the match:

Obviously this is a huge blow to the Champions League chances. Also a huge blow for the race for 4th place in the Premier League. Am I remaining optimistic? Absolutely. But with no Harry Kane, and no Sonny it’s going to be tough to come by goals. And with Champions League and Chelsea in back to back games this couldn’t have happened at a worse time. I know many have been saying the real Mourinho era starts next season, and now the reality might be hitting us straight in the face. But, I will remain optimistic and hope that I am surprised. COYS.
