Koo Ja Cheol -- He should start... not sure if Finnbogason is fit enough to play but for now I think Koo will be second striker/10. A chance for Augsburg to get things going.

Ki Sung Yueng -- He seems to be coming up a lot in press conferences but for now both Ki and Carvahal are saying the right things about focusing on relegation fight rather than contract. Of course the latter had a crazy metaphor about fires and water lol.

Lee Chung Yong -- The K league clubs are still interested (not sure when their window closes) so we'll see what happens but for now I expect bench warming.

Kwon Chang Hoon -- I think he will start but of course he's not an automatic teamsheet guy.

Suk Hyun Jun -- Suk has been starting despite not producing post-injury. Nobody else is really stepping up so I don't expect a change.

Lee Seung Woo -- Like LCY, expecting bench warming.

Son Heung Min -- Son caused danger all match and yet was really a bit wasteful in the final touch and Tottenham paid the price. Far from Son's fault given he was one of the best out there and scored their only goal, but even that goal reflected his inaccuracy where he mishit a volley onto his plant foot which fortuitously landed in goal. He'll have to think of the times when he mishit volleys or shot just wide in light of their elimination. To be honest, I don't think this team was going to win the CL, so perhaps for the best that they can focus on FA cup and finishing top 4.
