Tottenham could be without Son Heung-min and Eric Dier for Sunday's clash with Chelsea.

Son injured his calf on international duty with South Korea, while Dier had to be withdrawn just 12 minutes into Saturday's loss to Crystal Palace.

Both players will definitely miss Thursday's Europa Conference League clash with Rennes, and it is not guaranteed they will face Chelsea.

Football.London journalist Alasdair Gold has revealed: "The current feeling is that Son (calf) and Dier, who picked up a really bad dead leg at Palace, are struggling to be fit for the Chelsea game.

"At least for Dier, it's not the serious longer-term injury it looked at the time. Fingers crossed both improve quicker than expected in the days ahead."
