Hong Jeong Ho came on a late time wasting sub.  He will probably be on the bench as a defensive option.

Lee Chung Yong has been excellent so far since the change in managers, helping lead Bolton to Lennon's second win.  He should start again on Friday.

Son Heung Min had a pretty poor game, inaccurate with his passes and having trouble beating defenders on the dribble.  His frustration came to a boil when he got red carded for kicking opponent in the shin after being roughly taken tough.  He should start again vs his former club this weekend though.

Koo Ja Cheol came on as a defensive midfielder.  He looked pretty rusty with quite a few errors but also had some nice plays as well.  Park Joo Ho is also returning to training this week as well.  Koo had a bout of illness so his role will be dependent on that.  He may be bench again if he can't get right.  Probably one match too early for Park Joo Ho though a bench spot may be an option.

Kim Bo Kyung is off the squad again and may be eagerly awaiting the January window as its unlikely he'll make the squad this weekend.

Yun Suk Young has excelled in his two starts, winning QPR's man of the match this past weekend with a tough performance vs Aston Villa.  While he still shows a few signs of rustiness (poor crossing and still some indecision), he appears to be improving by the match though he has a tough assignment this weekend in Chelsea.  He should start.

Ki Sung Yueng was left off the squad to rest and unfortunately Swansea gave up a lead in the final minutes to be knocked out of the cup.  He should start again this weekend.

Ji Dong Won hurt his knee and even reserve team football may be too much with his injury.

Suk Hyun Jun wasn't a part of the squad.  Will investigate.

Kim Jin Su is still probably a few weeks away still.
