Midweek Schedule/Preview Feb 2nd

First, I'm dropping Yun Suk Young off the coverage list.  I'll let you know if anything changes but it's a lot of energy for a guy who doesn't play ever.  Second, I'm going to post a handful of opinion posts over next few months but nothing quite ready yet.

All matches are Tuesday on NBC Extra Time only.

Son Heung Min & Tottenham @ Norwich City - 2:45 PM ET - Son should get a start given rotation and while he wasn't perfect, he didn't do anything terribly wrong and Lamela and other players didn't win their spot back either.

Lee Chung Yong & Crystal Palace vs. Bournemouth - 3 PM ET - Was LCY's performance on the weekend enough to get him a start?  A lot depends on the cascading effects of injuries to Cabaye and Gayle, and potential returns for Bolasie.  I expect a bench spot for sure and a strong opportunity to start.

Ki Sung Yueng & Swansea @ West Brom - 3 PM ET - Hopefully the extra rest puts some spring back into Ki's steps.  He should start and we'll see how a new striker and CM fit into the plans.
