Tottenham have confirmed that Son Heung-min will undergo surgery to address the facial injury he suffered against Marseille.

The South Korean was forced off before the half-hour mark after a nasty clash with Chancel Mbemba left him dazed, while footage from after the game showed Son celebrating the victory with a nasty swollen eye socket.

Now, Spurs have confirmed that Son will head under the knife.

“We can confirm that Son Heung-min will undergo surgery to stabilise a fracture around his left eye,” a statement read.

“The South Korea international suffered the injury during the first half of Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League victory at Olympique Marseille.

“Following surgery, Son will commence rehabilitation with our medical staff and we shall update supporters further in due course.”

Tottenham are already without both Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison, with Lucas Moura and Bryan Gil flanking Harry Kane in the eventual 2-1 win in France.
