New York Red Bulls will aim to make it three straight wins in the MLS when they travel to Gillette Stadium to take on New England Revolution.
The hosts head into the game in superb form and will look to pick up their fifth victory on the bounce.
New England Revolution continued their blistering start to the campaign last time out as they claimed a 3-2 win away to New York City FC.
Midfielder Tommy McNamara scored the winner in the 88th minute, three minutes after Ismael Tajouri-Shradi drew the hosts level.
Bruce Arena’s men have now gone six games unbeaten, picking up one draw and winning their last five games.
This impressive run of results has seen New England Revolution surge to the summit of the Eastern Conference table. They have a five-point cushion on second-placed Orlando City.
New York Red Bulls, on the other hand, have hit their stride in recent weeks. Gerhard Struber’s side ended their two-game losing streak when they claimed a 2-1 victory over Orlando City just before the international break.
This was quickly followed by a 2-0 victory when they welcomed Nashville SC to the Red Bull Arena last time out.
Fabio and Kyle Duncan scored in either half to hand New York Red Bulls their first victory over the newly-promoted side.
This upturn in form has helped them rise to fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings, level on 12 points with DC United.
