The San Jose Earthquakes endured a disappointing two-match road swing, suffering a pair of losses to offset a promising two wins to start the season.

Fortunately for the Earthquakes, they'll be back at home to take on Seattle on Saturday, and are 2-0 at Avaya Stadium this season.

Their slow start to 2017 is nothing to get worked up about.

It doesn't take a tactical genius or a statistical whiz to suss out that the Seattle Sounders play really well when Nicolas Lodeiro and Clint Dempsey are on the field together. One need only look at the four times they suited up together last year to see what the fully operational battle station looks like.

Ho-hum, just another outstanding performance for the midfielder.

SEATTLE — Even with a makeshift backline and Clint Dempsey starting on the bench, the Seattle Sounders probably went to bed following Friday's game feeling as though they dropped two points rather than won one. The reasons aren't difficult to suss out.

Bobby Wood's injury has left Bruce Arena with some tough choices.

Clint Dempsey's status within the United States national team has been on quite a roller-coaster over the past few months.

First we expected Dempsey to at least get invited to January camp. After it was revealed he'd stay with the Sounders, head coach Bruce Arena strongly hinted that the USMNT would be playing the upcoming World Cup qualifiers without their second-leading all-time scorer.
