Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min could return to action against Chelsea on Sunday. Even as he continues to recover from a calf injury sustained while on international duty, he could be ready soon. So, even though he sprained a calf muscle in his right leg in shocking football news just last week, Son could return from his injury to face Chelsea this weekend, which is sooner than most people expected.
Son Heung-min sprained a muscle in his right calf recently, while away on international duty with South Korea.

Furthermore, he also will be unavailable to face Rennes with Tottenham in Thursday’s opening Europa Conference League clash.

However, journalist Matt Law now reports that the South Korean star hasn’t given up hope.
He is finishing his recovery ahead of schedule and will thus be, hopefully, facing the Blues in the north London.
