@manjuk,
I know twenty people
.............
for
the party.
a) definitely come
b) are definitely coming
c) will definitely come
d) are definitely going to come

b, c and d all work though d) seems to need TO the party


I’m sure you
__________
a lot
better after a good night’s sleep.
a) feel
b) are feeling
c) will feel
d) are going to feel

All four are okay with differing meaning as related to time.

If the plane gets in late I
.............
my train connection.
a) am missing
b) will miss
c) am going to miss
d) will be missing

a) is possible in a joking sort of fashion, b) and c) sound normal and neutral and d) sounds funny, and I can't think of a reason why.

@manjuk,
English does not have a future tense. It has many ways to describe a future situation.
