MLS Preview: D.C. United - Seattle Sounders

Still missing U.S. internationals Clint Dempsey and DeAndre Yedlin, the Sounders return to MLS action to take on United in a clash of the top two teams in MLS.

Their $7 million man may still be a hemisphere away, but the Seattle Sounders will return to MLS action nonetheless when they visit D.C. United on Saturday in a clash of the top two teams in MLS.

The meeting at RFK Stadium (7 p.m. ET, MLS Live) will mark the fifth game Seattle will play without Clint Dempsey, as well as DeAndre Yedlin, because of U.S. national team duty at the World Cup. Despite the notable absences, the Sounders (10-3-2) have managed to go 3-0-1 during that stretch.

Seattle will be missing its other designated player striker as well, with Obafemi Martins suspended. And center back Djimi Traore is still dealing with an adductor injury.

United (7-4-4) is coming off a 4-2 win at the Montreal Impact in its final game before the World Cup break.

The home side will be missing a critical player of its own, with MVP candidate Fabian Espindola sidelined by an MCL injury. Playmaker Luis Silva figures to take his place after notching a hat trick against the Impact.
