Park Joo-Ho is out of Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League team so he did not play mid-week. With a game on this weekend he should at least make bench against Darmstadt.

Kim Jin-Su wasn’t in the starting or reserves list last week, I expect it to be the same this week too. Tough situation for both Park Joo-Ho and Kim Jin-Su.

Suk Hyun-Jun started last week with his new club Trabzonspor I heard he was quite decent. He should start this week too. We all hope he gets his great form back. For people with Twitter, Suk Hyun-Jun recently got a Twitter account. You should give him a follow it’s: @suk_hyunjun.

Lee Chung-Yong should make bench this week against Stoke City. Hope he impresses when subbed on later in the game.

Ki Sung-Yueng started last week against Chelsea. He should start again this week against Southampton.

With Augsburg striker Caiuby out for the rest of 2016, this means Ji Dong-Won has to step out. Kind of good news as Ji will get more playing time. (Sorry Caiuby)

As Koo Ja-Cheol is a vital player for Augsburg he should start against Mainz. He faces his former club again.

Son Heung-Min scored an amazing brace last week. He should start as he was subbed off early mid-week. Let’s go Sonny.
