Player to watch: Erik Thommy

Attacking midfielder Erik Thommy is the player to watch in our Sporting Kansas City vs Houston Dynamo prediction, as he is coach Peter Vermes’ key weapon in the attack this season. With four goals to his name in 2024, Thommy is proving to be a valuable asset for his manager.

Thommy vital for Sporting

Erik was a starter for his team in most of the games this season. Surely, he will be among the starters for Sporting Kansas City against Houston Dynamo as well.
