Koreans Abroad Weekend Preview

By @KoreaFootAbroad

Smooshing a quick midweek preview (of which virtually no chance of playing) into this so a bit earlier than normal on weekend preview.  As a result, take predictions with a bit more uncertainty though we can predict preference fairly well.

Let's hope for a bit more to watch this weekend, even if a slight improvement.

Lee Chung Yong -- Maybe with midweek fixture, LCY has a slightly greater chance of doing something but unlikely as Crystal Palace is also getting healthier. There's a greater chance of him being left off squad barring injuries midweek.

Hong Jeong Ho -- After a middling performance from the other 3 CHs last weekend, perhaps HJH gets the start but really depends on how fit he and other CHs are.  Really up to Weinzierl and I'd put at 50/50.

Koo Ja Cheol -- He should be fresh and hopefully he spends his energy well and not too wastefully as he often does when amped up.

Ji Dong Won -- Back in training so we'll see if this weekend is too soon.  Maybe a bench role if he's not 100%.

Kim Jin Su -- Picked up a hamstring training midweek, and wouldn't have made squad if healthy anyway.

Ki Sung Yueng -- With safety looking more likely, does Ki get a run out to test players for next season and increase potential resale value?  He may need to wait for a dip from one of the starting CMs first otherwise.

Park Joo Ho -- I'm not sure he even traveled to Liverpool but I don't expect him to play either way or either day.

Suk Hyun Jun -- With the club in a period of instability, we'll see what XI is selected.  Suk should make bench if he doesn't start, but not sure which way that will go.

Son Heung Min -- Tottenham actually has too much to play for and thus Pochettino will most likely field his strongest XI... which means Son on the bench.
