Revolution Vs. Sporting Kansas City Lineups

The lineups are out, and thinks are looking fairly interesting from the New England Revolution front.

Revolution: Matt Reis; Kevin Alston, Stephen McCarthy, AJ Soares, Chris Tierney; Lee Nguyen, Clyde Simms, Benny Feilhaber, Shalrie Joseph, Kelyn Rowe; Saer Sene

Bench: Bobby Shuttleworth, Tyler Polak, Ryan Guy, Diego Fagundez, Jeremiah White, Blake Brettschneider, Fernando Cardenas

Sporting: Jimmy Nielsen; Chance Myers, Matt Besler, Aurelien Collin, Seth SInovic; Roger Espinoza, Julio Cesar, Graham Zusi; Kei Kamara, CJ Sapong, Bobby Convey

Bench: Jon Kempin, Michael Harrington, Soony Saad, Lawrence Olum, Paulo Nagamura, Luke Sassano, Jacob Peterson

It looks as though the Revolution have moved to a 4-5-1 look that will probably morph into more of a 4-2-3-1/4-3-3 when on the attack. This will allow the Revs to take greater advantage of their strength in the midfield, allowing Clyde Simms and Shalrie Joseph to maximize their talents as holding and box-to-box midfielders, respectively. Also, Benny Feilhaber has been pushed to his more favored central position, where he will hope to see more of the ball and create chances.

French striker Saer Sene is making his first MLS start - and his MLS debut - up top after missing last week's match with knee swelling. He will have to work hard in the solo striker position tonight. Also, after an impressive performance last week, Lee Nguyen has earned his first MLS start on the left wing.
