Poll: Which DP will have the biggest impact on Sunday's game?

The stage is set for a historic battle at Toyota Park on Sunday. The New York Red Bulls, with three Designated Players in toe, head to Chicago to face a new-look Fire squad that promises to make a push for the playoffs. It's a star-studded affair: Never before in league history have five DPs appeared on the field at the same time.

Mexican standout Nery Castillo is slated to make his Fire debut, and he'll have to contend with compatriot Rafael Márquez, who will also make his MLS debut. Márquez's teammate, Thierry Henry, will likely go up against former Arsenal teammate Freddie Ljungberg. The pair won hatfuls of games together at Arsenal, but from here on out they'll be in strict competition. Both will be looking to make a big impression in Sunday night's match—especially Ljungberg, who will be making his home debut.

And let's not forget the tried-and-true goalscoring prowess of Juan Pablo Angel, one of the league's original super powers and always a threat in front of goal.

But which player do you think will have the biggest impact on Sunday night's Eastern Conference point grab? Who will be the game-changer? Let us know!
