Midweek Jan 22nd

Only one match midweek and that's Ki Sung Yueng and Sunderland taking a 1-0 aggregate lead to Manchester United in the 2nd leg of the League Cup semis (with the winner taking on Manchester City in the finals).  2:45 PM ET on BeIn.

As for Ki, he had one of his worst performances Saturday, in particular a couple of poor passes that gave Southampton chances.  He also didn't work back as far which limited his effectiveness in the first half... not sure if that was tactical or fatigue.  That said, Sunderland pulled out the draw with Ki opening things up for the 2nd goal with a good run and cross that led to the goal.  He should start tomorrow.
