Lots of televised matches this weekend.  With family in town, we'll see how much I get to see live.

Kim Jin Su has been a regular starter so I suspect he should start again though with a tough matchup this weekend.

Lee Chung Yong has a small chance of making the squad after Sako got hurt and was declared out.  That said, Pardew seems antsy to get his forwards back in the squad.  I expect he'll make the squad though clearly a large possibility of being left off.

Yun Suk Young may get in at LM or left off the squad.  Perhaps Yun has carved himself a spot in the squad now but he could be left off again like last time he started.  I'm leaning towards in the squad but not start.

Suk Hyun Jun should start and he'll be looking to impress before January window opens.

Son Heung Min was pulled after 70ish minutes.  He started off slowly but towards the end, he had found his rhythm, getting behind the defense frequently, blasting a shot off the crossbar, and assisting in Kane's winner with a nice flick on.  He looked to be getting stronger as he was subbed so I think he was subbed off to rest him for Chelsea, having helped Tottenham qualify for knockout stages.  So I expect a start.

Park Joo Ho was left at home as it turns out he had an injury from international duty.  Since there were pictures of him training, I don't think its serious so he may be an option to start this weekend, or more likely on the bench.

Ki Sung Yueng should be more rested now and has no excuse for another soft performance like last week.  I think he starts though he could be benched if Monk wants to shake things up some more.

Hong Jeong Ho continues to run but a return to action still seems a way off.

Ji Dong Won missed a golden opportunity to score for himself but helped create what should have been the winner as his powerful shot deflected to Bobadilla who scored the rebound.  Unfortunately, Augsburg let in two goals in the final few minutes and somehow lost.  Ji was a bit inconsistent, though he was clearly trying hard and had some really good stuff too.  I expect bench for him.

Koo Ja Cheol came on late but really didn't do much good but nothing bad.  I expect him to start vs his old club as Augsburg look for critical Bundesliga points.
