Revolution vs. Union 2013 Lineups: Guy, Fagundez Get the Start

SAINEY!!!!! - Jim Rogash

The Revolution lineups have been announced, an while there are some similarities to last week, a few changes were made as they prepare to face the Union. Also, a very special someone has made an appearance on the bench tonight.

New England Revolution head coach Jay Heaps has trotted out a lineup similar to the one that lost 4-1 to New York last week as his team prepares to take on the Philadelphia Union at home. Two minor differences highlight a starting XI that doesn't appear to have greatly improved over last week.

In a well-expected move, Stephen McCarthy replaces the injured A.J. Soares at center-back. Soares was listed as out for tonight's game, and McCarthy filled in for him against New York. Obviously, Heaps liked what he saw from one of last season's top performers and wants to see more of it.

Ryan Guy also earns the start, this time in place of Andy Dorman (ostensibly) in central midfield. He saw extensive time in the center of midfield last season, and will be expected to bring an energetic box-to-box presence alongside Kalifa Cisse.

Diego Fagundez starts up top next to Jerry Bengtson again. Saer Sene lurks on the bench, so expect to see him in the second half. The high-scoring Frenchman was not on the injury report this week, but obviously has not had enough time to get starting-fit.

Oh, and I saved the best for last: SAINEY NYASSI HAS MADE THE BENCH. FREE NYASSI.
