Seattle Sounders fans will have to wait at least one more week to see Clint Dempsey, Obafemi Martins, and Eddie Johnson all together in the starting lineup.

Dempsey was a late addition to the Sounders injury list on Saturday, being listed as out with a hamstring injury. The news means that fans are deprived of a dream matchup between Donovan and Dempsey when the Los Angeles Galaxy host the Sounders on Saturday evening.

According to reports, the Nacogdoches, Texas native didn’t travel to Los Angeles with the team, staying back to rehab his injury. Since moving to the Sounders on August 3, Dempsey has played five games, starting just three as he’s split time between his club and the U.S. Men’s National Team.

What do you think of this news? Disappointed that we won’t be able to see Donovan go head-to-head with Dempsey on Saturday? Does this change your prediction of the match?
