I’m not at Sporting Park for today’s game (he do have a freelancer on the scene), but I’ll be hosting the live chat same as always. Here are the lineups:
Sounders FC lineup: GK Michael Gspurning, D Zach Scott, D Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, D Djimi Traore, D Leo Gonzalez, M Brad Evans, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Servando Carrasco, M Mario Martinez, F David Estrada, F Eddie Johnson
Sounders FC bench: GK Marcus Hahnemann, D Patrick Ianni, D Dylan Remick, M Andy Rose, M Alex Caskey, M Mauro Rosales, F Eriq Zavaleta
Sporting KC lineup: GK Jimmy Nielsen; D Josh Gardner, D Ike Opara, D Aurelien Collin, D Chance Myers, M Oriol Rosell, M Peterson Joseph, M Benny Feilhaber, F Jacob Peterson, F CJ Sapong, F Graham Zusi
Sporting KC bench: GK Eric Kronberg, M Mechack Jerome, D Lawrence Olum, D Seth Sinovic, M Mikey Lopez, F Claudio Bieler, F Kei Kamara
NOTES: Estrada, Scott and Carrasco all get their second starts of the season. Alonso is back, but Obafemi Martins, Steve Zakuani, Shalrie Joseph and Marc Burch are all still out. Lamar Neagle and DeAndre Yedlin are suspended after getting red cards last game. This is Seattle’s 12th lineup in 12 games this season.
