ESPNFC has provided some sketchy Portuguese times but given lack of TV options, not going to chase it down harder.

Son Heung Min played for 77 minutes.  He was more bad than good though he did have a number of quality touches.  His effectiveness waned quickly after the hour.  Unfortunately, Leverkusen lost in penalties and is out of CL.  I think he should start this weekend.

Kim Bo Kyung played 90 in a loss but seemed to be doing well.  He should start again.

Hong Jeong Ho hasn't made the squad yet and with an international break looming, I'd expect him to be left out with re-assessing his situation over the break.

Ji Dong Won has struggled to make an impact and thus perhaps he's benched though he might still start as his substitutes didn't do any better.

Kim Jin Su should start.

Lee Chung Yong will hopefully return to training soon but this week would be too soon.

Ki Sung Yueng looked a bit tired and will have a large amount of international duty but its a good opportunity for Swansea to get some points as they seek to break their points record so he most likely will start.

Koo Ja Cheol was very lively and with Hofmann maybe not 100%, he may get the start.

Park Joo Ho looked really good at LB and I hope that he continues to start there though he may be on the bench or at DM.

Yun Suk Young has struggled but given lack of alternatives, he should start.

Suk was a sub and perhaps he does the same this weekend.
