Team of the Week: Long in Starting XI, Muyl on Bench

New York Red Bulls defender Aaron Long was named to the MLS Team of the Week Starting XI for Week 8.

Midfielder Alex Muyl also got a nod for the TotW bench.

Long, one of two Red Bulls field players to log every minute of every MLS match in 2017, has helped anchor a defensive line that hasn't given up a home goal, including back-to-back clean sheets.

Muyl scored his second of the season, his second game-winning goal in two weeks.
