Son Heung Min -- Son tried hard but couldn't get anything going on a very wet pitch in a big rain storm. Lost the ball more often than one would like but he did have a couple good chances but unfortunately couldn't finish them. With very (insanely) short rest, I don't have a great idea on who will start but I suspect Son will again and be bench on the weekend.

Lee Seung Woo -- It seemed there was an injury making the matchday squad uncertain when they called 24 players, and it turned out to be LSW with that minor injury. Doesn't really make much difference but perhaps he gets to warm bench this weekend if he's recovered.

Ki Sung Yueng -- Still out with that calf strain. If he's back to fit, one would think that it wouldn't be risked for a cup match either in terms of Swansea's relegation fight or possible transfer but perhaps Ki might need some minutes either from bench or from the start to get back in the swing of things.

Lee Chung Yong -- A sighting! Got garbage seconds and then warmed the bench in following match. Was it to get his value up or to build depth (that's needed more with Puncheon out)? He has had some minor injuries so not purely selection, and perhaps he can earn some positive momentum for more minutes or for transfer. One would think that he'd get a chance here and would be a great opportunity on TV.
