We'll see how much I get to watch live with family in town this weekend.  So live updates on my twitter feed may be missing but there should be a recap within some level of timeliness.

Yun Suk Young -- We'll see how much more QPR play defensively with Yun at LM... gut feeling is that experiment may be winding down soon, with Yun either dropping to the bench or maybe even out of 18 again.  My gut feeling based on zero facts is that he won't start this week but be on the bench.

Hong Jeong Ho -- Probably still out with injuries pending updates this week.

Ji Dong Won -- I think Ji is currently the first offensive sub off the bench until he gets more consistently useful in the box with goals still a struggle at times for Augsburg and few scorers in form for them.  There's a non-trivial chance of him starting but I think after a good and tough fight at Wolfsburg, Wienzierl will want to stick with a similar XI.

Koo Ja Cheol -- Koo should start as he continues to really be the spark plug of the Augsburg team with his versatility and aggressiveness.  Koo has done most everything really well and if there's anything to add, I'd hope for a bit more class to go with all that grit to help break down opponents defenses more efficiently.

Kim Jin Su -- Toljan has been training on his own so I think Kim Jin Su should start but more out of default rather than KJS dominating his role.  He needs to get back onto the form he briefly splashed with Steven's arrival and more importantly the form he had for that long stretch on his initial arrival in Hoffenheim.  He's been around too long for excuses for the amount of variability he shows minute to minute.

Ki Sung Yueng -- I think he should start but with Swansea drifting towards the bottom, Monk may go for something unexpected (even if non-optimal as we saw last weekend with Britton over Cork).

Son Heung Min -- He's provided danger even if a bit off form.  He should start just on that basis though with injuries to Alli and Mason, he'd probably start even if he were struggling more.  He'll be looking to get a goal again to get that momentum going again.

Suk Hyun Jun -- He's been starting regularly and should continue to do so.

Park Joo Ho -- His so-so form has come at a poor time with the battle for spots in Dortmund's squad strong, especially with Schmelzer playing well ahead of him.  He'll probably be on the bench or out of the squad again and with knockout rounds assured, may look to Europa match next week to earn some more opportunities.

Lee Chung Yong -- This weekend will most likely be his best chance to start out wide and impress with injuries and suspensions to players ahead.  It may be that Pardew goes with a different choice (e.g. another striker) but for now, it looks like a start is very probable and bench certainty if he doesn't start.
