Spurs could reportedly be without both Heung-Min Son and Christian Eriksen when they face Watford this weekend. Tottenham will be looking to bounce back from a nightmare week before to the international break, suffering a 7-2 defeat against Bavarians in the UCL before then falling to a 3-0 loss away at Brighton.
In turn, perhaps the break came at a good time for Spurs, but Mauricio would have been hoping that he would have a full team to choose from this weekend. Son started this season excellently as he already played nine games, scored three goals and provided three assists in all tournaments.
Mauricio Pochettino may well have to do without both Son and Christian, at least in his starting XI, as the former arrived back late from international duty after what has been described as a gruelling clash with North Korea while the latter picked up a dead leg while in action for Denmark.
With that in mind, a decent run of consequences will quickly move them up the table, and so amid the blows of having key individuals missing against Watford, Argentine tactician will hope that he still has enough quality available to see his team pick up all three points and get back to winning ways.
