|DID YOU KNOW?|
- Philadelphia striker Jack McInerney is the current MLS leading scorer. The 20-year-old has scored six goals in seven matches so far this season.
- These teams already met once this season. McInerney was the difference in a 1-0 Union win on March 16.
- McInerney has been especially effective against the Revolution, scoring four goals (three game-winners and an equalizer) in six games versus New England.
- New England has scored just two goals this year, the weakest offense in MLS. Worse for the Revs, one of that pair was an own goal in a 4-1 loss to New York last week.
- Philadelphia comes into this match with a three-game unbeaten streak. New England hasn't won since its opening game of the season.
