  • These teams are meeting for a third time this season. Jack McInerney’s 90th-minute goal was the difference in a 2-1 Union victory on July 29 at PPL Park, followed by a scoreless draw on Sept. 1 in Foxborough.
  • The Union have never lost to the Revolution, with three wins (and three draws) in six all-time meetings.
  • New England's only away win in MLS season was a 3-1 victory over reigning champion LA Galaxy on March 31.
  • Twenty-year-old striker Jack McInerney has scored twice in his last two appearances to give him six goals, good enough to make him the Union's joint top scorer this season.
  • Philadelphia's Sheanon Williams will miss this game through suspension due to yellow card accumulation.
