TOTTENHAM are bracing themselves for the loss of Son Heung-min as he takes time out of club duty for a second international competition this season with South Korea.

The forward is set to participate in the Asian Cup having already won a gold medal at the Asian Games, and an exemption from military service, back in September.

Asian Cup 2019 fixtures and results

 Tottenham are set to be without Son-Heung-min for a key period in their season

When does Son Heung-min go to the Asian Cup?

Son Heung-min will go to the Asian Cup after Tottenham's home game against Manchester United on Sunday.

The tournament is underway, but Son has missed South Korea's opening 1-0 win over the Philippines and will also be in London for their second match against Kyrgyzstan.

He will, however, be at the competition for their final group game - a derby against China.

Which Tottenham games will Son Heung-min miss?

The best case scenario for Tottenham fans is South Korea getting knocked out at the group stage, in which case he could travel to and from the United Arab Emirates without missing a single Spurs game.

But this seems unlikely after South Korea won their opening group game.

Here are the games Son Heung-min will miss depending on his country's progress:

If South Korea are knocked out at the group stage - None

If South Korea are knocked out in the last 16 - Fulham (a)

If South Korea are knocked out in the quarter-final - Chelsea (a - Carabao Cup), Crystal Palace (a - FA Cup)

If South Korea are knocked out in the semi-final - Watford (h)

If South Korea reach the final - Newcastle (h)

Crystal Palace v Watford: match preview

Watford have been a rollercoaster ride producing the sublime and less sublime so far. They have been an open book scoring and conceding freely, the 3-3 draw with Bournemouth last time out a perfect example of their season. Crystal Palace are enjoying a welcome upturn with unlikely wins against Leicester, Manchester City and Wolves in their last five matches. Another win could put Palace nine points above the relegation zone. Javi Gracia should be worried, especially as the sole goalscoring burden has been lifted from Wilfired Zaha. Graham Searles

Chelsea v Newcastle: match preview

Chelsea will want to move on from their defeat in the League Cup and are likely to do just that against Newcastle. To do so Maurizio Sarri needs to figure out what is ailing his side considering their relative poor form since beating Manchester City in December. Newcastle could give him chance to experiment because Rafael Bentítez has a depleted squad through injury, players away on international duty and Kenedy ineligible against his parent club.
