The Sebastien Le Toux era for the New York Red Bulls kicks off Sunday, with the new acquisition taking on one of his former teams when the Red Bulls host the Seattle Sounders at Red Bull Arena (4 p.m., ESPN/ESPN3.com).

After being sent to New York from Vancouver on Friday night, Le Toux is in the starting lineup for New York, as is new goalkeeper acquisition Bill Gaudette, who replaces injured rookie Ryan Meara (hip). Thierry Henry and Rafa Marquez are also in Hans Backe's starting XI.

For the Sounders, who are fresh off clinching a berth in the U.S. Open Cup final for the fourth straight year, Fredy Montero remains on the bench as Sigi Schmid goes with hot hand Eddie Johnson (five goals in last six league games) alone up top in hopes of securing the club's second straight win after a nine-game winless stretch.

The match is also significant in that Ben Olsen's MLS All-Star Game matchday roster and MLS comissioner Don Garber's two All-Star selections will be revealed at halftime.
