INSIDE THE 18: New York Makes Some Changes To 18-Man Roster

Head Coach Jesse Marsch and the New York Red Bulls will send out a slightly altered Starting 11 and 18-man gameday roster against Orlando City SC on Saturday night at Red Bull Arena.



Slotting in for an injured Daniel Royer, Alex Muyl will get the start for New York and will be accompanied by Sacha Kljestan, Sean Davis and Bradley Wright-Phillips in the attack.

Wright-Phillips tied Brian McBride and Raul Diaz Arce for No. 14 on the MLS all-time scoring list. With one more goal, BWP will tie Robbie Keane (83) for No. 13 in the record books. Wright-Phillips has three career goals versus Orlando.

Felipe will command the defensive midfield and will be supported by Kemar Lawrence, Tyler Adams, Damien Perrinelle, Aaron Long and Michael Amir Murillo.

Luis Robles will start in goal for New York.

Robles will tie Dax McCarty’s club record of 163 MLS starts. Robles has played the full 90 minutes of every MLS start in his career for the Red Bulls.

On the bench for the Red Bulls: Ryan Meara, Arun Basuljevic, Vincent Bezecourt, Aurelien Collin, Connor Lade, Derrick Etienne, Jr. and Gonzalo Veron.

Bezecourt is making his first MLS gameday roster after signing a MLS deal on Friday. He previously appeared on an U.S. Open Cup gameday roster earlier this season.

Collin and Lade are both on the 18-man roster after injuries forced them to miss time.

Sal Zizzo is suspended due to an accumulation of yellow cards against New York City FC.
