FC Dallas returns to Toyota Stadium tomorrow night to face Sporting Kansas City! Dallas currently has a 1-1-1 record, with their latest result being a 1-1 tie against the Vancouver Whitecaps away. Kansas City is at 0-2-1 right now and their last result was a 0-0 draw against L.A Galaxy, which was Kansas' home opener.

Debut of Jimenez-


The news was dropped earlier this week that Jesus Jimenez is finally eligible for selection! Jimenez's Dallas debut has been held up due to visa issues. His availability gives coach Nico Estevez more firepower on the bench or even a chance a use a different formation.

The chance that Jimenez will play tomorrow is pretty high. The main question is whether Coach Nico will have come off the bench or start. This brings me to the next section of this preview, my predicted starting lineup:


Starting Eleven-

For my predicted starting lineup, I have Dallas in the single striker formation, with that striker being Jesus Ferreira. I thought about having Jimenez among the starters but I couldn't think of who he would replace. Alan Velasco has been pretty good so far this season, Paul Arriola is the team captain and since he had the own-goal last weekend, I feel like benching him this game would negatively affect his confidence.


I have Sebastian Ibeagha and Nkosi Tafari as the starting center backs. Ibeagha had that excellent goal last game and Tafari assisted on it. Jose Martinez could replace either of them, but I think that these two deserve another game starting together.


Prediction-


3-1, FC Dallas. Unfortunately, Dallas hasn't had a clean sheet yet this season and I think it might be a bit before they do. Alan Velasco adds his second goal of the season, Jesus Ferreira adds his third, and finally Jimenez scores in his debut.
