Undefeated through the first four games (three wins and a draw, 10 pts), Chivas USA sits alone at the top of the MLS standings, and will host the expansion Seattle Sounders FC this Saturday, April 18, at 7:30 p.m. at The Home Depot Center. The Sounders (3-1-0, 9 pts), despite a 1-0 loss to Kansas City last weekend, trail the Red-and-White by just one point and have the second best mark in the league. Featuring head coach Sigi Schmid, who led the Columbus Crew to the MLS Cup last year and has previously coached both the LA Galaxy and UCLA, the Sounders have conceded just one goal through their first four games, but will be missing goalkeeper Kasey Keller, who received a red card against Kansas City.
Listen to Preki, Zach Thornton, Carey Talley and Mariano Trujillo discuss the early-season success of Chivas USA's defense, and look ahead to Saturday's first-place showdown with Seattle in our Official YouTube Channel here:
