MLS SUNDAY
A look at the upcoming game


New England Revolution (6-9-5, 23 pts)@ Philadelphia Union (6-10-2, 20 pts), 7:00 pm ET (NBCSN)
The Philadelphia Union will have a hard time matching the spectacle of last Wednesday’s MLS All-Star Game at PPL Park, but they’ll settle for three points against the New England Revolution and a step up in the Eastern Conference standings on Sunday. Philadelphia’s three-game winning streak ended with last Saturday’s 2-0 road loss to the New York Red Bulls, a rare shutout in a recent streak of offensive production that saw them score 12 goals in their previous five games. For all but defender Carlos Valdes and midfielder Michael Farfan, this week’s All-Star Game offered a welcome respite for a Union team coming off a run of nine games in 27 days. The Revs are winless in three, but played Sporting Kansas City to a scoreless draw last weekend at Livestrong Sporting Park. New England has won only once on the road all season, against seven losses and a pair of draws, both recent. The rash of injuries that has plagued the Revolution for most of the season appears to have abated somewhat, with center back Stephen McCarthy and veteran midfielder Shalrie Joseph returning to the lineup against Kansas City. Ryan Guy was all over the field, seeing time at forward, midfield and the backline, and after Matt Reis went down after a late elbow in the face from Kei Kamara, Revolution coach Jay Heaps said “If Matt Reis wasn’t able to get up, then Ryan Guy was going in goal. I think he would have set the record for number of different positions in one game.”
