Six New York Red Bulls Make MLS Team of the Week, pres. by Audi

The New York Red Bulls dominated the MLS Team of the Week, presented by Audi, for Week 12.

Bradley Wright-Phillips, Kaku and Michael Amir Murillo were all named to the Starting XI.

Wright-Phillips drew a penalty and scored a second-half double to help lead the Red Bulls to a 3-1 victory over Atlanta United, and he now leads the league in goals scored with eight. Kaku added two assists, adding to his league-leading total, now at nine.

Ryan Meara and Aaron Long made the Team of the Week Bench.

Meara started his first MLS match since 2015 -- and first with the Red Bulls since 2015 -- and made six saves, one shy of his career high. Long helped the Red Bulls hold Atlanta, the other top-scoring team in the league, to just one goal.

Jesse Marsch was tabbed as the best coach in MLS for the week.
