MOST COMMENTED

[MLS PREVIEW] New York's attack has dazzled at times this season while its inconsistent defense has struggled, so a solid showing at both ends of the field in beating Chicago, 1-0, last week gives it an ideal starting point to test Chivas USA's impressive home record.

CHIVAS USA (11-6-4) vs. RED BULL NEW YORK (11-9-3)
Sunday, 8 p.m., Direct Kick


Also ideal is the presence of Juan Pablo Angel, who again drew praise for his savvy work off the ball against Chicago in addition to the finish he applied to a Dane Richards ball. He is tied for the league lead with 14 goals and irrespective of Chivas USA's excellent defensive record, he will test them, as will Richards, who seems to have broken through the lull that afflicts most rookies with stronger play the past two games.

The Red Bulls may also be bolstered by the return of Dema Kovalenko, who played a full reserve game last week as he recovers from facial injuries suffered in a car crash.

Jozy Altidore sat out the Chicago game with a leg injury yet the front line has been strengthened by the addition of Liberian Francis Doe, whose energy and skill have brightened his two appearances as a sub.

Ante Razov and Sacha Kljestan scored the goals when Chivas USA downed the Red Bulls, 2-0, at Giants Stadium July 26
