The Sounders' first loss of the season dropped the team to fifth place in the MLS Western Conference standings over the weekend. The team's 1-0 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes placed Seattle in the lower half of the Western Conference.
Seattle currently has six points, while Real Salt Lake, San Jose, Colorado and Vancouver all have collected eight or nine points. The season is still early and as a result, the Sounders could easily jump back into the top half of the standings with a win this weekend against the D.C. United.
The Sounders' Eddie Johnson may make his return in Saturday's game against D.C.. Saturday's game in Washington D.C. will be the Sounders' first game on the road this season.
The D.C. United are 1-2-1 on the season with their sole win being a 4-1 win against FC Dallas on Saturday.
