  • Clint Dempsey's second game with the Seattle Sounders will be a return home of sorts, with the USA captain having grown up in Nacogdoches, a small town north of Houston.

  • Houston comes into the match on the back of a loss to Real Salt Lake, with that result leaving the club in the final playoff spot in the East.

  • Two Seattle players took part in the USA's win over Bosnia on Wednesday, with Eddie Johnson - who is suspended for the game against Houston - opening the scoring for the USA. Brad Evans also played in the match.

  • Saturday's match will be Seattle's first at BBVA Compass Stadium.

  • Prior to the loss to RSL, Houston was on a four-match winning run in MLS play.
