Sounders FC vs. San Jose, lineups

san jose home 2013


Welcome back to CenturyLink Field.

It’s been a while, huh? Four weeks to be exact since the Sounders have played here. And look, there’s a design in the turf. That’s new.

Is this the day Seattle gets out of last place in the Western Conference?

We shall see. San Jose has won four-straight in this head-to-head series and will be getting forward Alan Gordon back from suspension. The visitors will lose midfielder Marvin Chavez to suspension, however, and forward Steve Lenhart could be out with a heel injury.

Injuries and suspensions are an issue for the Sounders, too, as Lamar Neagle and DeAndre Yedlin come back, but Marcus Hahnemann is out. The injuries to keep an eye on for the hosts are Obafemi Martins (knee), Steve Zakuani (groin) and Shalrie Joseph (hamstring).

Expect some changes due to a quick turnaround, too.

I’ll post lineups here when they become available.
