Weekend Recap Dec 26th

Quick turnaround here with matches midweek.  (Un-)fortunately, not much to recap for this weekend.

Lee Chung Yong -- Chungy had a baby and returned home to be with the kid.  He'll probably be back  soon but will be out for another match.

Yun Suk Young -- Out of squad yet again.  We'll see what happens in new year.

Ki Sung Yueng -- Scored his first goal, as he opportunistically pounced on GK error and knocked in a loose ball for an easy goal.  Unlike last weekend, he was less influential... it looked at times that Pulis had schemed to slow him down but Ki didn't take advantage of space that he didn't have.  Not a bad performance but a bit labored.

Son Heung Min -- Came on as a late sub with the match looking well in hand and both sides looking like they were saving energy for the next match.  He got behind the defense once but he was wrongly called for offsides and he didn't really have a good touch anyway.  He'll be looking to impress on the next match.
