'World Cup's in a few weeks, I'm sure he'd be gutted if he missed it': Fans express concern for Son Heung-min and Tottenham on social media after South Korean goes off injured to add to their injury woes with Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison out
- Son Heung-min went off injured during the first half against Marseille in France
- Tottenham trailed at break after difficult first half in which they were pinned in
- Defeat at Marseille would spell the end of their Champions League campaign
The South Korean was forced off after appearing unsteady having taken a blow to the head from Chancel Mbemba.
Tottenham's first half misery was compounded by a goal from Mbemba deep into time added on largely because of Son's injury.

Reacting Son going off, supporters expressed their concern for the South Korean while also expressing displeasure at Antonio Conte's choice of replacement.
'That looked nasty on Son. Hope he's okay. World Cup's in a few weeks, I'm sure he'd be gutted if he missed it,' one wrote.
'Son is injured what?' another dramatically noted.

Another pointed to Tottenham's present injury struggles and tried to make sense of the impact of them by comparing it to Arsenal.
'Spurs now have Kulusevksi, Richarlison, Son injured,' they wrote. 'That is an equivalent of having Saka, Martinelli, Odegaard injured.'
Others sought to criticise Antonio Conte and his substitution decisions after he replaced Son with a Yves Bissouma, a defensive midfielder.

'Honestly Spurs are so s*** to watch, Son gets injured and you bring on a defensive midfielder? Just Kane up there attacking? What is the point in playing football,' they wrote.
'Son gets injured and Conte doesn't bring on another attacker that's crazy,' another noted.
One other user wrote that the present situation reminded them of the club's difficulties under Jose Mourinho.
'Reminds me of the time Son & Kane were injured under Mourinho. Like the rest of the team doesn't know how to play football,' they wrote.
Another, perhaps coming from a more extreme wing of the Tottenham support, reaffirmed their desire for Conte to leave the club.

'What’s funny is everyone will still defend Conte, saying we had injuries, Son went out injured, the disallowed goal against Sporting, Conte not being in the touchline,' they wrote.
'He has to f****** go, stop with the excuses.'
The existentialism surrounding Tottenham subsided slightly in the second half with Conte's side getting back into the game via a Clement Lenglet header.
They must avoid defeat in France to secure their path to the last 16.
