Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur suffered an injury in a home match against Newcastle United in the English Premier League on Sunday.
After the 1-1 draw, Spurs manager Jose Mourinho confirmed that Son hurt his hamstring. "It's an injury. We'll have him out for a while. It's his hamstring," he said.
Son was replaced by Steven Bergwijn at half-time.
Starting in the club's EPL season opener against Everton on Sep. 13, Son appeared in five games in two weeks, traveling about 8,200 km from Britain to Bulgaria and North Macedonia.
He started in all five matches and played full-time in four, scoring five goals and two assists. It is not certain when he can return to the pitch.
After a game against Chelsea on Tuesday in the EFL Cup, currently known as Carabao Cup, Tottenham faces Maccabi Haifa in a Europa League playoff on Thursday and Manchester United in a Premier League match on Oct. 4.
