Jose Mourinho is optimistic that Son Heung-min’s injury sustained late in the game against Manchester City insisted serious.

Son took a blow on the ankle after a challenge with City’s Joao Cancelo, and looked in some discomfort with Mourinho revealing it was a nasty cut which warranted a card.

But, with Spurs taking on Wolfsberger in the Europa League knockouts on Thursday, the Portuguese is hoping the South Korean forward will be fit to play.

“Well he has a wound in his ankle. A wound means a stud. A stud in the ankle means a card,” Mourinho said.

“I don’t think a red, so the VAR can only interfere for a red. I don’t think a red, but if that’s not a yellow and the referee was 5 metres distance but it is a wound in the ankle. Hopefully nothing big.”
