Revolution Vs. DC United Lineups Update: The Moreno Era Begins

Jay Heaps' chosen starting lineup carries with it few surprises. Shalrie Joseph's suspension forced some shuffling in midfield, but overall the lineup remains largely the same. Kevin Alston has reprised his starting role at right-back, while the fitness of John Lozano has not stopped Stephen McCarthy from holding onto his first-choice status in central defense.

To cover for Joseph's absence, coach Heaps elected to move Kelyn Rowe inside to play centrally with Clyde Simms backing him up. Lee Nguyen stays at left-wing, while Ryan Guy takes Rowe's place on the right. The real excitement is up top, however: Heaps and his staff are finally able to trot out their first-choice striker tandem, with Saer Sene partnering controversial Colombian target man Jose Moreno in attack.

Moreno made his debut against Dallas and announced his presence with a vicious shot, but he will have to prove his fitness and his talent with results as the starter against DC today. Speaking of strikers, new signing Bjorn Runstrom made the bench, along with Benny Feilhaber, who was questionable coming into the weekend.
