Dempsey starts up top, Valdez out for the Sounders at FC Dallas

New, 3 comments

There are few changes in Seattle's starting lineup for their road match at FC Dallas, with the only change from last week's lineup being Cristian Roldan in for Aaron Kovar. This means Clint Dempsey is officially starting at center forward (a position he seemed to play for chunks of last week's match), while Roldan will start in central midfield. Dempsey is flanked by Jordan Morris and Herculez Gomez.

Nelson Valdez picked up a late calf strain and didn't make the trip to Dallas at all. No other surprises on the bench as Nathan Sturgis takes the spot vacated by Valdez.

FC Dallas' starting lineup is below, former Sounder Mauro Rosales starts on the bench.
