Park Joo Ho -- Doubt it as he didn't make squad midweek.

Lee Chung Yong -- Maybe more than PJH but not really as he also was left out midweek.

Ki Sung Yueng -- With Cork and Fer getting fit, and Clement praising Britton, Ki could be odd man out. Then again we don't know if Cork/Fer can go 90. A huge opportunity against a wounded and fatigued United side. I suspect Ki will be on the bench but maybe he starts if Cork/Fer aren't 100%.

Ji Dong Won -- I guess Caiuby of all people is nearing a return (but doesn't have doctor clearance) and Finnbogason isn't suspended so we'll see what team Baum selects but I expect Ji in the squad and probably in the starting XI. A must win.

Koo Ja Cheol -- Out injured.

Kwon Chang Hoon -- With a win last week, maybe ODO doesn't change what worked last week which means bench for KCH. Of course with another week to get fit, perhaps he gets the start.

Son Heung Min -- Tottenham looked far better in 4-2-3-1 than with five in the back, but I'd think Poch would want to use his top XI for the NLD. As for Son, he came off the bench at HT and had a few missed dribbles but didn't really get a chance to get involved too much as the action was on the other side. Hard to say if Son starts, especially as it remains to be seen how Poch reacts to Arsenal's new shape, but he'd certainly be on the bench if not.
