Sounders v FC Dallas - Injuries, Referee, Statistics, TV

George John listed as Questionable - Tony Medina

A selection of prematch data such as injury situations, suspensions, the officials and team statistics. Also, you can catch the match on ESPN with Adrian Healey, Taylor Twellman, and Alexi Lalas or on 97.3 FM with Ross Fletcher and Kasey Keller if you can't make it to the stadium.

Both the Seattle Sounders and FC Dallas are impacted by injury and suspension. The biggest lineup question facing Seattle is can Jhon Kennedy Hurtado start his first game with his new mask. For the Toros the question of whether or not to push stars Shea and John through injury may come down to the result of the Portland-Vancouver match. If Vancouver loses the pressure mounts for Hyndman's squad to make a push.

The statistics for Dallas are a bit odd. Their season really took place in two parts. The first they were awful and the second they were decent, but not great. Some things are clear. They are good in dead ball situations and poor in run of play (particularly open play crosses - yeah!). They play at a high pace, but do not do well late in matches. At this point in time they might be considered an average MLS side.
