The New York Red Bulls will roll into Toyota Park with their most consistent Starting XI.

The Red Bulls will see Kemar Lawrence, Tim Parker, Aaron Long and Michael Amir Murillo start across the defense.

The midfield mix will be made up of Sean Davis, Marc Rzatkowski, Tyler Adams, Kaku and Daniel Royer.

Royer has tallied four goals in the last four games, including three goals in the last two. The Austrian midfielder had his hot streak last season in the middle of the Summer as he tallied six goals in a four-match span during July.

Bradley Wright-Phillips will start at forward for New York, while Captain Luis Robles starts in goal.

Head Coach Chris Armas will have Ryan Meara available as the backup keeper off the bench, alongside Fidel Escobar, Derrick Etienne, Jr., Andreas Ivan, Connor Lade, Ryan Meara, Alex Muyl and Brian White.

Ivan makes his first gameday roster since being signed during the summer transfer window and acquiring his P-1 Visa.
