David Jensen will be back between the pipes for the New York Red Bulls, making his sixth start of the season. Jensen is 2-2-1 on the season as a starter.
Interim Head Coach Bradley Carnell will see Brian White also return to the Starting XI. White has made three starts with seven appearances in 2020.
Outside of those two changes, the same lineup that beat D.C. United will return to the pitch for New York.
The back line of Aaron Long, Sean Nealis and Tim Parker will be joined by Kyle Duncan and Jason Pendant on the wings.
Dru Yearwood and Cristian Cásseres Jr. will lock down the midfield, with Kaku and Daniel Royer pushing the field forward.
Yearwood is making his second straight start in MLS since joining the Red Bulls.
Kaku had his hand in both goals against D.C. United last weekend to help propel New York to a 2-0 win. Kaku moved into New York’s Top-10 all-time assists and game-winning assists list with his 22nd and 23rd career MLS regular-season assist and his seventh career game-winning assist.
Carnell will have Amro Tarek, Jared Stroud, Samuel Tetteh, Ben Mines, Florian Valot, Omir Fernandez, Mandela Egbo and Tom Barlow on the bench. Kendall McIntosh will serve as backup goalkeeper.
Ryan Meara, Sean Davis, Marc Rzatkowski and Patrick Seagrist are sidelined with injuries.
