Injury Report: Three Out, One Questionable

The reigning MLS Cup champions are in town on Saturday for a truly mouthwatering inter-conference showdown.

Seattle Sounders arrive at Yankee Stadium in excellent form following a run of four wins in their last five games in all competitions but who is fit to face off against them?

There’s bad news for Head Coach Patrick Vieira as Maxi Moralez is ruled out of the game with the injury sustained against Red Bulls last time out.

The Argentine midfielder picked up the knock and was an enforced withdrawal at half-time of the US Open Cup match on Wednesday and is not fit to play as a result.

Ronald Matarrita will also be out of the 18 after sustaining an injury in training on his return from international duty with Costa Rica and Khiry Shelton remains on the sidelines.

Maxime Chanot missed the midweek game with a hamstring injury but has returned to training with his teammates and will be assessed on Saturday.

For the visitors, both Tony Alfaro and Brad Evans are rated as questionable.
