The big news here is Omar Gonzalez finally returning to the LA Galaxy starting lineup after his stint in US national team camp and the World Cup which kept him away for months. Keane and Zardes remain up top, with Landon Donovan now playing a wide midfielder role.
With a flat four midfield playing in front of them, Gonzalez gets his old partner in crime back with DeLaGarza as a center back and Robbie Rogers taking on the left back role returning from injury. The two of them complement each other well covering each other's weaknesses that it's a real shame they have to be broken up so often.
Seattle has Obefemi Martins as the lone target forward with Clint Dempsey behind him, but there are significant absences as both Chad Marshall and Brad Evans are missing.
The match kicks off at 7:00pm on ESPN2.
