  DID YOU KNOW?
  • In the four all-time meetings, the home side has won every time. The last encounter, in October 2011, sealed a playoff appearance for New York.
  • The Union have seven points from eight games, second worst in the East and well behind New York, 19 points from 10 games and second best in the East.
  • Philly's pathetic tally of five goals scored in 2012 (tied for worst in the league) is dwarfed by New York's 20. Kenny Cooper and Thierry Henry alone have combined for 17.
  • Juan Agudelo returned from a knee injury to appear as a substitute in the 1-0 win over the LA Galaxy, his first appearance since the season opener. That game also marked Ryan Meara's third straight shutout. The rookie leads MLS with 37 saves.
  • Gabriel Farfan is suspended for this game. The 23-year-old started a midweek friendly against Schalke 04, which Philly won 2-1.
