    Tottenham's Premier League stats so far this season…


    Son Heung-min will be forced to self-isolate for two weeks on his return from South Korea over continued fears surrounding the coronavirus.

    The Tottenham star was given permission to return to his homeland last month to undergo surgery for a broken arm he sustained in the 3-2 win over Aston Villa on February 16.

    Jose Mourinho said: “I think the normal advice comes from the authorities, comes from the government. I'm not going to make any comment, I'm nobody, I'm no specialist.

    “I just get the legal advice and what my club gets from authorities, and of course we follow everything.

    “That's why I'm saying that Sonny when he's back from Seoul we will have to follow the protocols and we are not going to have him immediately here.

    “Where he will be? I don't know how to be specific with that, I just know we have to follow some safety protocols.”


    Mourinho, speaking ahead of the club’s clash against Wolves on Sunday, said: “I would say he is a little bit ahead.

    “It gives me a hope of, instead of one or two matches, he might now play three, four or five.

    “He's doing what he can do at this stage but always with a good feeling.

    “Sometimes follow protocol and some setbacks because of not the best feeling on this action or that movement.

    “But everything is going well. He's having very good feelings.

    “So, positive.”


    The Premier League may be forced to hold crisis talks to decide whether Liverpool can be crowned champions if coronavirus wipes out the end of the season, reports Duncan Wright.

    There is a growing threat the illness could wreck sporting events around the globe as health chiefs battle to contain the spread of the disease.

    Huge public gatherings, such as football matches and concerts, may have to be called off in the worst-case scenario in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

    So far, more than 80,000 people in almost 50 countries have been infected with coronavirus – with around 2,800 killed.

    Arsenal, meanwhile, have prohibited any journalists suffering a cough from attending their press conferences.



    Jose Mourinho has also talked about Son Heung-min's return.

    Asked if the South Korean will be back before the end of the season, he said: “That's the hope but we're far from it.

    “He's coming back soon and we have to follow safety protocols.

    “Then we'll look at all the possibilities.

    “I cannot imagine when but there's a good chance before the end of the season we'll have Harry and Sonny playing together.”
