Tottenham will be without Heung Min Son for the fixture with Manchester United next Sunday.
Son suffered an injury in Spurs’ draw on Sunday afternoon against Newcastle United.
Jose Mourinho told Sky Sports: “It’s an injury. We’ll have him out for a while. It’s his hamstring.”
Son went off injured at half-time and this comes as a big blow for Spurs.
The South Korean scored four goals in one game a week ago as Spurs beat Southampton 5-2.
A terrible afternoon for Mourinho
Spurs conceded an injury time penalty against Newcastle to cost them a win.
Despite playing a game more than United, they are just one point above the Red Devils in the table.
Mourinho stormed down the tunnel after the game, and told reporters: “At some clubs, even after the last whistle, it’s possible for something important to happen, but for us I knew that after the last whistle it was over.”
This was a dig at United’s late penalty winner against Brighton on Saturday.
Ahead of the game Mourinho took a bizarre dig at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, telling The Independent: “He’d never accept to play with a 17-yard box, I think he would prefer a 22-yard box. For him it would be better.”
Mourinho has left United, but he cannot get the team out his head.
In two attempts he has failed to beat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, losing one and drawing one.
Next Sunday’s game is at Old Trafford, and not having Son available comes as a big blow for Mourinho, and has a positive impact for United.
