The severity of Son’s injury is not yet known, but the fact he was able to walk off the field would have been an encouraging sign for Jose Mourinho.
Despite being forced into an early change, the substitute Lamela made an instant impact, scoring a sublime Rabona just 13 minutes after coming on to give Spurs the lead.
Martin Odegaard levelled the score before the half time break with a deflected finish for his first Premier League goal for Arsenal.

Mourinho will be hoping Son’s injury is not too serious, as the striker has been a pivotal figure in their team this season, scoring 13 goals and registering nine assists from 28 Premier League matches.
He has also struck up a formidable partnership with striker and club captain Harry Kane who has 16 goals and 13 assists himself.
Spurs will likely not find out the nature of Son’s problems until he has tests next week.
