Without Nelson Haedo Valdez the Seattle Sounders will turn to Jordan Morris as the starter at center forward. The rest of the attack is similar to the win over the Impact. Andreas Ivanschitz and Aaron Kovar are the wingers with Clint Dempsey back as a goal-scoring center mid.

The rest of the midfield and defense is as expected with Joevin Jones again starting after getting a bit of rest in the win.

There was a time when a Houston Dynamo versus Seattle Sounders FC match would be an MLS Cup Playoff preview. Today is not that time. Both teams are below the red line. Few expect Houston to challenge in the West and Seattle is chock full of disappointment.

The myriad struggles of the Houston Dynamo's embattled backline early this season have been well-documented, but when the Dynamo travel back to BBVA Compass Stadium to play against the Seattle Sounders—a team with multiple difficulties of their own—they will have an opportunity to correct the defense's misgivings.

SEATTLE Strange, but the most striking moment in the Seattle Sounders' 1-0 win over the visiting Montreal Impact on Saturday night was not Clint Dempsey's game-winning header in the 79th minute, a goal that ended the Sounders three-game, season-opening losing streak and that at least temporarily lifted a shroud of anxiety hovering over the nearly 40,000 in attendance at CenturyLink Field.

SEATTLE With just more than 10 minutes to play inSaturday night's match against the Montreal Impact, the Seattle Sounders looked headed for their fourth straight disappointing performance. Mired in a largely toothless and scoreless draw, it seemed the Sounders would end the night with just one point from their first four matches.

The lack of offense is a bit worrying. There are two DPs, a high priced HGP and a fancy creator all up top, and yet the Seattle Sounders are a rather poor side by actual and expected goals through three MLS games. None of these players are in the spot where they would be best. Ryan and Dave talked through a few ideas and eventually settled on the solution.

The United States isn't completely out of danger, but they again control their own destiny and hope for the Hex.

With their backs against the wall the United States Men's National Team played a very American game. It was gritty, rough, and fortunate. Starting in a 4-3-3 with their top talents in more typical positions, Jurgen Klinsmann's men put up a potent 4-nil drubbing.

It feels good to wake up and rate the players in a victory, right? No one would call this a perfect performance, but some excellent defensive play kept a clean sheet, and a stop-and-go offense squeezed in a goal at the other end. It was certainly a match to build on.

We the raters get to consider a different-looking team this week.

Seattle had more chances late on, but the match finished with just the one goal

The Sounders' fourth match of the season started rather slowly, as the first half ended with only one shot on goal for Seattle and two for visitors Montreal Impact. A slightly altered lineup saw Aaron Kovar and Dylan Remick come in forJordan Morris and Joevin Jones, and the Sounders played in what looked more like a 4-2-3-1 than the 4-3-3 they had been playing thus far this season.

Of course when there's a decent amount of momentum to questioning Jurgen Klinsmann, he saves his job.

Just because the United States Men's National Team made short work of Guatemala Tuesday night doesn't mean a whole lot for the USSF going forward. Columbus, Ohio (of all places) is an absolute fortress for Jurgen's side, and it should have come as no surprise that the men got off to a great start.

Not a single player is being obviously played out of position, as DeAndre Yedlin has been returned to his more natural right back and Geoff Cameron is anchoring the defense at center back.

A game-by-game look at where Clint has played, and how effective he's been.

Clint Dempsey was one of the main creators for the Seattle Sounders attack last season, at least when he was healthy and not suspended. He consistently put himself in dangerous positions, made runs that gave his teammates space, and linked up with attackers to exploit defensive weaknesses.

This was a vintage Dempsey goal, as he runs onto a free ball in the box after Gyasi Zardes kept it alive with a nice challenge.
