Lee Chung Yong -- Still out injured. Did sign autographs so not forgotten lol.

Ki Sung Yueng -- Will Ki play in a more advanced role to jumpstart their offense or will Clement shuffle the deck? I'd suspect that Ki should start... been most reliable of the army of DM/CM. But this team is awful and what Clement does to fix things...

Son Heung Min -- At least his scoring is on fire even if he had a pretty meh performance. Against inferior opposition but without playmakers like Eriksen, things had a lumpy feel but Son and Llorente did link up well when the ball did get into dangerous areas. But he struggled whenever he tried to get into a playmaker role and did show a bit of sloppiness in general. He did come out reasonably early to rest him for tomorrow. I'd think Poch has to start one of the few guys scoring.

Kwon Chang Hoon -- It's amazing how far KCH has come in first half of season where he has to start. Hopefully he keeps going.

Suk Hyun Jun -- A tough matchup but I'd think for that role Suk will start.

Lee Seung Woo -- I assume he will stay on the bench and we'll hope he at least gets the sub minutes.

Ji Dong Won -- I think with things going well, Ji will remain on bench except maybe garbage time. It is getting near time to see what Augsburg winter plans for him will be.

Koo Ja Cheol -- Kinda like Ji, I think this winter window is uncertain for Koo: feels like he's too good and valuable for Augsburg to let go, but things are going ok without Koo's outsized influence. This weekend, I expect him to return to the bench with Khedira back.
