Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur remains goalless after eight consecutive matches so far this season.
Son started in a UEFA Champions League match against Sporting CP in Lisbon, Portugal on Tuesday, but was substituted off in the 72nd minute without recording a single shot. Tottenham lost 2-0, conceding two goals in injury time.
Son will likely get another opportunity to score his first goal of the season on Sunday in a Premier League game against Leicester City at home.
However, there is a possibility that he will be dropped from the starting lineup.
"All the players have to accept the rotation," Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte said in a press conference on Monday. "You have to change old habits, otherwise it means you want to stay in balance and it means you don't want to have ambition."
Last season, however, when asked whether he would consider resting Son, Conte said he would be "crazy" to leave out Son.
