Week listings and previews for our Korean Players Abroad. Europa League was on today morning, Park Joo-Ho’s Borussia Dortmund vs Son Heung-Min’s Tottenham Hotspur. Final score was 3-0 win for BVB, goals by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and brace by Marco Reus. Son Heung-Min started and was later subbed off while Park Joo-Ho was excluded from the squad list. A win was in Dortmund’s favour as Tottenham made 7 rotations this game. Match to watch this week is Tottenham Hotspur’s vs Aston Villa. Will the Spurs maintain their 2nd place position?

Since this week is a FA Cup match for Crystal Palace I expect Lee Chung-Yong to get some playing time. He should at least start or make bench this week against Reading.

Hong Jeong-Ho started last week against Bayer Leverkusen, if fit I expect him to start again against Darmstadt.

Ji Dong-Won was excluded from the squad list last week, with a new striker at Augsburg it will be harder for him to start. I expect him to make bench this week against Darmstadt.

Hat trick Koo should start this week against Darmstadt, Koo Ja-Cheol has been top form these days.

Kim Jin-Su finally made bench last week with Hoffenheim but he has missed couple of training sessions this week with a cold. I expect him to be excluded from the squad list against Wolfsburg.

Ki Sung-Yueng is a vital player for Swansea City he should start this week against Bournemouth.

Suk Hyun-Jun has been getting some great playing time at FC Porto, I expect him to either start or be benched against C.F. Uniao.

Son Heung-Min started today in the Europa League against Borussia Dortmund, I think he will be rested for the game against Aston Villa. He should make bench at least.

Park Joo-Ho still hasn’t been making the squad list for a couple of weeks now, I don’t think there will be change anytime soon with Borussia Dortmund’s excellent form.
