Spurs forward Son has missed Ange Postecoglou's side's last five matches in all competitions, and the north Londoners will be delighted to have their talismanic figure back in the fold as they prepare to host Brighton at home this weekend.
Captaining his country at the Asian Cup finals in Qatar, Son will have been left dejected after South Korea suffered a shock semi-final defeat at the hands of underdogs Jordan.
Spurs' number seven will hope his swift return to Premier League action can help lift his spirits, with the ex-Bayer Leverkusen forward having struck an impressive 12 goals in 20 league games so far this term.
Brighton could be obliging visitors for Spurs, too, with Roberto De Zerbi's Seagulls having kept just two Premier League clean sheets all season.
Winning at home to Brentford and drawing away at Manchester United and Everton in the Premier League in Son's absence, Spurs boss Postecoglou will be hoping the return of his skipper can help galvanise his charges as they hunt down Champions League qualification.
One player who has seemingly thrived in Son's absence is Richarlison, with the Brazilian having hit four goals in the three Premier League games his South Korean teammate missed on international duty.
Richarlison's form as Spurs' central striker means Son is likely to be utilised on the left-hand side of Postecoglou's attacking 4-3-3 setup in the coming weeks.
Tottenham are remarkably yet to fail to score in a Premier League game this season, with the return of one of the country's most clinical finishers in Son boosting their chances of continuing this impressive run.
