I don’t know what’s happening to Lee Chung-Yong but he hasn’t been making the Crystal Palace squad list, I think he may still be injured. If you have any information on Lee Chung-Yong please comment below.Kim Jin-Su should start against Borussia Mönchengladbach, it will be a tough game for him this week.
Yun Suk-Young finally started for QPR, he started as a left winger. Good to see Yun getting some playing time. He should either start or be on the bench against Leeds.
Suk Hyun-Jun is doing great. He scored a goal in the Cup last week. He should start against Uniao Madeira.
Son Heung-Min should start against Chelsea. Hopefully we can see Sonny score a goal against last year champions Chelsea. Mark your calendars it will be a great match.
It has been reported that Park Joo-Ho sustained an injury during international week. I am not sure how fit he is, if fit he should make a bench appearance.
Great news! Although Ryu Seung-Woo didn’t play this week. He made a bench appearance in the Champions league game against BATE. Hopefully Roger Schdmidt hasn’t forgotten about Ryu.
Another big match, Ki Sung-Yeung and Swansea against Liverpool. Ki should start.
Hong Jeong-Ho is still injured but now started some light running. He should be back after Winter break.
Koo Ja-Cheol scored last week against Stuttgart, good to see Koo scoring a lot of goals these days. He should start against Wolfsburg, he will be facing this former club this week.
Ji Dong-Won provided an assist in the Europa League this week, link is attached below. I expect him to either start or benched against Wolfsburg. Augsburg has it tough this week, I really hope they can pull it together.
