They ended up playing the same group in the back for a number of games. I think with (Michael) Umana, (Dario) Delgado, (Mariano) Trujillo and (Ante) Jazic that group really started to understand each other. But it was really the group in front: the midfielders and forwards did a good job of pressuring the opponents. They made it difficult for you to play and, as a result, they won balls back and took advantage of their opportunities.”NOTES: The Sounders have won four straight league matches and are unbeaten over their last five. Chivas is 2-1-2 over its last five MLS games. However, the loss came in the most-recent match, 2-1 last weekend at Toronto. … Seattle has gone a season-best 261 minutes without allowing a goal. … The Goats’ top two goalkeepers have been injured at various times this season. Dan Kennedy suffered a season-ending biceps injury last weekend against Toronto. Thornton is listed as probable tonight. … Chivas defender Jonathan Bornstein is expected to be available tonight after playing 90 minutes Tuesday in the U.S. national team’s 2-0 loss to Brazil. … If Seattle defender Tyrone Marshall is cautioned he will have to sit out the next league game. … The referee will be Alex Prus. … Seattle and Chivas will meet again Sept. 1 in a U.S. Open Cup semifinal at Starfire Sports Stadium in Tukwila.NEXT: Seattle returns to CONCACAF Champions League play Thursday at Marathon of Honduras.
