New England Revolution vs. Philadelphia Union: Revs Seek Revenge Against Philly

Earlier this season, back in May, the Revs felt hard done by their 1-1 draw in Philadelphia. Union striker Kacper Przybylko smashed into Matt Turner, forcing him to spill the ball and tying the game up very late. New England will look to get their three points back at Gillette Stadium on Sunday night.

NE XI:

GK: TURNER

DEF: JONES, FARRELL, KESSLER, BYE

MID: MACIEL, MCNAMARA, POLSTER, BUCHANAN

FWD: BOU, BUKSA

LINEUP NOTES: Carles Gil remains out, not even on the bench. Luis Caicedo out, as always. Jon Bell is still recovering from the injury suffered a few matches ago against Montreal. Buchanan will take up the #10 role of Carles Gil for the second straight game.

PHI XI:

GK: BLAKE

DEF: FINDLAY, ELLIOTT, GLESNES

MID: MBAIZO, MCGLYNN, MARTÍNEZ, FLACH, AARONSON, SULLIVAN

FWD: SANTOS

LINEUP NOTES: Alvas Powell is out with a hamstring strain. Jack De Vries and Anthony Fontana will miss with concussion symptoms. Cory Burke is also questionable. Philadelphia with a partly second choice lineup with the CONCACAF Champions League on Thursday later this week.

The Revs will host the Philadelphia Union at Gillette Stadium at 6:00 PM EST in what is a must win game for the MLS leaders.
