Midweek schedule Aug 25

Recap will come later today I hope (technical issues).  CL for Son and Capital One Cup for English players.


Ki Sung Yueng may return for Swansea's Capital One Cup match vs York City.  Being completely held out of Saturday may mean that he's not quite ready but the cup match seems like a good opportunity to get back into match action especially at home (i.e. no travel) 2:45 PM ET; no TV.

Lee Chung Yong and Crystal Palace host Shrewsbury Town in cup match.  Pardew mentioned Chungy was practicing well.  This should be the chance for him to make his claim for more match action. He has a high probability of starting. 2:45 PM ET; no TV.

Yun Suk Young and QPR host Carlisle United in the cup. Local press had suggested that Yun might have featured in U21 side to get his first minutes after a missed preseason.  But Yun didn't play so perhaps he gets thrown into cup action instead or it may reflect a setback of some sort. 2:45 PM ET; no TV.


Son Heung Min and Leverkusen host Lazio in second leg of CL playoff needing to overcome first leg 0-1 defeat. Son missed the weekend due to illness and even if healthy probably would have been benched for form. Might a weekend off help Son get back into it?  His replacements didn't do great this weekend so perhaps Son gets the start but he could be bench for fitness or form reasons. 2:45 on FS2

Ryu Seung Woo is also with Son but I expect him to only fill out the bench or left off completely.
