Sung-Yueng will not be available to play for Swansea when they face Southampton on Sunday since he's still competing in the Asia Cup for Korea Republic, Express reports.

Sung-Yueng has been away from Swansea for the entire month of January and he won't be available for Premier League play until Feb. 7 against Sunderland. Upon his return, he will more than likely regain his spot in the starting XI since he racked up 19 starts before heading to Asia.

Sung-Yueng netted his third goal of the season to give Swansea the 1-0 victory over Hull City on Saturday.

Sung-Yueng isn't a major threat to score from game-to-game, although he's now taken a total of 16 shots over 17 Premier League games. He will be looking for his first assist and fourth goal of the season when Swansea faces Aston Villa on Friday.

Sung-Yeung (shoulder) managed to play the full 90 minutes during his return to the pitch Saturday against Everton.

Sung-Yeung was able to train ahead of Saturday's match but still needed a late fitness test before taking the pitch. Swansea drew to a 0-0 tie against Everton on Saturday and will likely be challenged by Arsenal this upcoming Sunday.

Sung-Yueng (shoulder) has been able to train ahead of Saturday's match against Everton but will still face a late fitness test to determine his availability.

Sung-Yueng was not available for Tuesday's Capital One Cup loss to Liverpool and was allowed to rest his injured shoulder instead. With this rest and confirmation that he's been able to train, it seems likely that the 25-year-old will be available to face Everton, although a late fitness test may ultimately prove otherwise.

Sung-Yueng was able to record a goal during Swansea City's 2-1 victory over Manchester United on Saturday.

Sung-Yueng had a disappointing end to his 2013-14 season as he dealt with knee tendinitis, but he appears to have made a full recovery based from Saturday's performance. By hitting the pitch at full speed and playing all 90 minutes against United, Sung-Yueng may be an enticing player to watch when Swansea faces Burnley on Saturday.

Ki is suffering from knee tendonitis and is expected to miss a couple of weeks, Chronicle Live reports.

Ki has three goals and one assist in 28 appearances this season, making him a relatively weak fantasy option given his midfield status.

Ki grabbed a late goal as a sub in the 2-1 loss to Liverpool on Wednesday.

Ki also hit the frame of the goal minutes before he netted with his header off a corner. He was likely a substitute just to grab some rest, as this is a busy week for most of the EPL squads. Ki is arguably Sunderland's most valuable player right now, as he continues to contribute offensively and even defensively for the Black Cats.
