The Seattle Sounders are making a few changes to the starting lineup this week as they prepare to take-on the Colorado Rapids on Friday night. Fredy Montero is back in the starting XI after recuperating from a wrist surgery that's left him in a cast and on the sideline. The back-line will also have a new look as Leo Gonzalez and Jeff Parke were both sent to the bench, with Tyson Wahl and Patrick Ianni taking their places.
Here are the full lineups, as tweeted by Joshua Mayers
Sounders FC lineup: GK Kasey Keller, D James Riley, D Patrick Ianni, D Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, D Tyson Wahl, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Brad Evans, M Mauro Rosales, M Steve Zakuani, F Fredy Montero, F O'Brian White

On the plus side, Tyrone Marshall is starting for the Rapids, significantly increasing the chances Seattle receives a penalty kick.
