Sounders vs. FC Dallas, starting lineups: Brad Evans returns, Tyrone Mears absent

Brad Evans is back in the Seattle Sounders starting lineup after missing their last two league matches. Evans is just one of several changes, though. Oniel Fisher replaces Tyrone Mears, who is not even in the 18, and Andreas Ivanschitz is in the forward band instead of Nelson Valdez.

Although it's listed as a 4-3-3, it will be interesting to see how it actually plays. The way it's drawn up suggests Clint Dempsey will be playing ostensibly as a No. 9, with Ivanschitz and Morris on the wings. But it's reasonably likely that it will play more as a 4-4-2, with Dempsey sitting underneath Morris and Cristian Roldan going wide.
