  • New York is one of two teams left in MLS which hasn't lost at home this season. The Houston Dynamo are the other.
  • With a midweek win over Chivas USA, Seattle advanced to the U.S. Open Cup final. Seattle has won three Open Cups in a row and will visit Sporting Kansas City for its fourth straight final.
  • These teams have split their meetings over the past two seasons. Each team won away in 2010 and then at home in 2011.
  • New York employs the second (Kenny Cooper) and fourth (Thierry Henry) top scorers in the league this year, but defenders have scored four of the team's last five goals.
  • Five players are one booking away from a suspension, including Fredy Montero, Eddie Johnson, Dane Richards, Joel Lindpere and Dax McCarty.
