Son Heung Min -- I have to think that Pochettino will continue the shape that has worked well recently, and so Son should start on the left and certainly will be first offensive choice off bench if needed.

Lee Chung Yong -- Maybe a bench spot... not keeping close tabs on Crystal Palace's roster health.

Ji Dong Won -- I don't think Baum will change what worked but I'm sure Ji is one of Baum's favored options on the bench. It may not be this match, but the final three matches are very difficult so Ji will have to be ready to contribute in any role.

Koo Ja Cheol -- Out injured.

Park Joo Ho -- Unlikely to make squad but I think Schmelzer and Durm both injured.

Ki Sung Yueng -- I think Clement showed his hand taking Ki off for Fer last weekend so if Fer can go 90, I think Ki will be on the bench.

Kwon Chang Hoon -- Hopefully his good showing last weekend means that KCH gets a start. Perhaps if he had started, the draw would have been two more points away from relegation.
