Paul Robinson has said that Tottenham Hotspur head coach Nuno could recall Son Heung-min to the starting lineup against Crystal Palace.

Tottenham will take on Crystal Palace away from home at Selhurst Park in London on Saturday afternoon.

South Korea international forward Son is doubtful for the London derby due to injury.

Former Spurs goalkeeper Robinson believes that if Son is not able to play against Palace, then head coach Nuno will recall Brazil international winger Lucas into the starting lineup.

Robinson told Football Insider: “He’s the first name on the Spurs teamsheet alongside Harry Kane. He’s an outstanding player for Spurs, and he’ll be a big miss.

“But then you look at the talent they’ve got in the squad. Lucas Moura will always come in and perform, and Steven Bergwijn has had a great start to the season.

“This is why Spurs have got a squad of quality players – they’ve got more than enough to deal with this injury.”

Tottenham can be backed at 15/2 on Betfair to win the London derby against Palace 2-0.
