Weekend Preview / Schedule Jan 30

Cup action + Bundesliga = lots of Fox this weekend.  There's midweek action next week in UK though so keep that in mind.  It's nearing the end of the window too so there's that variable which might mess with who plays though I think Yun is the only major candidate for a move.

Son Heung Min -- I think after going full 90 twice, he'll get a rest on the bench, though maybe he will come on as a sub.  If he does start, it means he'll probably not start midweek next week.

Hong Jeong Ho -- He should start and hopefully continues his strong form in a critical match at home vs another relegation candidate.

Ji Dong Won -- He will probably start though being first pulled last weekend may mean a spot on the bench.  Since Caiuby is out though due to suspension and Werner is still injured, I think he will start out wide.

Koo Ja Cheol -- Koo returned to running and fitness training today. He missed winter training so the weekend might be too soon to start but perhaps he gets enough team training in to get on the bench.

Park Joo Ho -- Schmelzer sounded confident playing last Sunday (kind of weird that he was protected for just one day) so Park Joo Ho is probable to get benched if healthy to start.

Lee Chung Yong -- I would think that he gets a start here and it's too bad that the match isn't being televised.  Perhaps Pardew might want to field a stronger team for the cup though but given injuries and suspensions, not too much choice so LCY should be on bench if not a starter.

Suk Hyun Jun -- Perhaps he gets a start.  Not been following too closely as to what's going on here especially with lots of transfers into Porto in past couple days.

Kim Jin Su -- He will start but it won't be easy vs. the weapons at Bayern.  A tough test for his confidence and abilities.

Ki Sung Yueng -- No action with Swansea out of FA Cup.

Yun Suk Young -- No action with QPR out of FA Cup.  He also didn't play midweek.
