Koo Ja Cheol -- Baum sounded happy about Koo's temporary wearing of the captain's armband, and with lots of injuries, we should see Koo start again but perhaps Baum will have a funny shape to reflect the lack of a natural RB.

Ki Sung Yueng -- Started in a surprise for me, playing as DM. Given that Sheffield Wednesday were playing pretty deep, that meant that Ki didn't have to do too much. He got subbed off at HT which seemed a sign to me that Ki was there to ensure that Swansea didn't lose the match early and that he should start again this weekend.

Son Heung Min -- A good game from Son as he scored twice, had a PK goal incorrectly ruled illegal, and also assisted a goal and was subbed off first when the match was well in hand. That said some of his problems of taking to long in the box and failing to beat GK in tight one-on-ones remain an issue. Being subbed off is a good sign for him to start this weekend, but also may mean that he'll be on the bench for CL midweek.

Suk Hyun Jun -- Will probably start but needs to get going as Troyes are in the relegation zone.

Kwon Chang Hoon -- We'll see how fit he is, and given propensity for being benched when not 100%, probably means he'll be on bench even if fit.

Lee Seung Woo -- A must win vs bottom of the table Benevento means that LSW probably won't play.

Lee Chung Yong -- Was last week's cameo a sign of being used again? Probably not so I assume he'll continue to warm the bench.
