Starting XI: GK Djordje Petrović; LB DeJuan Jones, D Jon Bell, D Henry Kessler, D Andrew Farrell, RB Brandon Bye; M Maciel, M Matt Polster, M Tommy McNamara, M Noel Buck; F Gustavo Bou ©

  • Bruce Arena makes one change to his Starting XI from Sunday’s 3-0 win over NYCFC, as defender Brandon Bye starts in place of midfielder Carles Gil. Gil is unavailable tonight as he remained in Boston with his wife, Maria, who gave birth to the couple’s first child on Saturday. 
  • Andrew Farrell becomes the first player in club history to appear in 300 MLS regular season games for New England. The club’s all-time leader in MLS appearances, starts, and minutes played, Farrell guides a Revolution backline that owns an active streak of 255 minutes without conceding a goal, with nine clean sheets on the season. 
  • Djordje Petrović earned MLS Team of the Week honors with a seven-save shutout performance on Sunday vs. NYCFC. The 22-year-old Serbian is three shutouts away from matching Matt Reis’ single-season record (10 – 2005, 2006, 2007).
  • Homegrown Player Noel Buck of Arlington, Mass. collects his third consecutive start. The 17-year-old netted his first MLS goal on Sunday, becoming the youngest Revolution player to score a goal since Diego Fagundez in 2011.
  • Gustavo Bou owns a team-high five goals in as many appearances against the Red Bulls. Bou (5,967) is 34 minutes shy of eclipsing 6,000 minutes played in MLS. 
  • Tommy McNamara has reached the scoresheet in five of the last seven games, with two goals and four assists during that span. McNamara is now three starts away from his 150th in MLS. 
  • Matt Polster suits up for his 25th appearance, and 21st start, of the 2022 campaign. 
  • Maciel registers his 15th appearance of the 2022 season. The Revolution II alum has completed 91.3 percent of his pass attempts this season, the best rate on the team.
  • Henry Kessler, a native of New York City, ranks second on the team behind Maciel in passing percentage, completing his passes a 90.5 percent clip, fourth best among all MLS defenders in 2022. 
  • Brandon Bye returns to the starting lineup after missing one game with a minor leg injury, while DeJuan Jones enters tonight’s 42 minutes away from surpassing 7,500 played in MLS. 
  • Jon Bell features in the Starting XI for the second straight game. The Revolution II graduate started at left back against New York City and netted his second career goal, the opening tally of the game.
