Lineups vs. New England Revolution

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – After three straight home matches, Sounders FC took to the road to face the New England Revolution on Sunday to cap off a stretch of three games in nine days. While Seattle Head Coach Sigi Schmid hinted that his lineup may need some shuffling to hand the rigorous schedule, he is starting 10 of the same players from Wednesday's 2-1 win over FC Dallas at CenturyLink Field.

Brad Evans will get his second consecutive start at left back on a back line that includes DeAndre Yedlin at right back and a center back pairing of Chad Marshall and Djimi Traore, who is the only change from Wednesday, starting in place of Zach Scott. Stefan Frei will start at goalkeeper as he continues to bring down his 1.40 goals against average.

In the midfield, Lamar Neagle and Marco Pappa will flank the central pairing of Osvaldo Alonso and Gonzalo Pineda. Neagle has three goals and one assist in his last four matches to bring his season total to four goals and three assists.

Clint Dempsey makes his return to Gillette Stadium, where he played the first three years of his professional career with New England from 2004-2006, earning MLS Rookie of the Year honors in 2004 and MLS Best XI honors in 2005 and 2006 before leaving for Fulham. He starts at forward on Sunday along with Obafemi Martins as the dynamic scoring duo looks to break New England's four-match home shutout streak.

Schmid will have a bench of Marcus Hahnemann, Zach Scott, Leo Gonzalez, Micheal Azira, Andy Rose, Kenny Cooper and Chad Barrett.

Sounders FC XI: Frei; Yedlin, Marshall, Traore, Evans; Pappa, Alonso, Pineda, Neagle; Dempsey, Martins.
