Predicting Atlanta United’s 11 vs. New York Red Bulls

Who will start for Atlanta United in Sunday’s game at New York Red Bulls?

Atlanta United (6-3-2) has won five consecutive games, each by shutout to set an MLS record, while Red Bulls (4-5-2) have won three of four.

This is a huge game because Atlanta United needs to keep pace with Philadelphia in the East. The Five Stripes trail the Union by three points but has a game in hand. Atlanta United trails D.C. United by four points but has two games in hand.

Manager Frank de Boer was able to rest Michael Parkhurst and Darlington Nagbe during Wednesday’s 1-0 win at Vancouver. Julian Gressel and Miles Robinson also came off the bench.

I think Eric Remedi may get a rest in this game. Other than that, I don’t think any players will be left behind for this game.

Here we go:

Goalkeeper Brad Guzan

Right fullback Franco Escobar. 

Centerback Miles Robinson. He’s back in the lineup.

Centerback Leandro Gonzalez Pirez. 

Left fullback Michael Parkhurst. He’s back in the lineup.

Defensive midfielder Jeff Larentowicz.

Defensive midfielder Darlington Nagbe. He’s back in the lineup.

Wide midfielder Julian Gressel. He’s back in the lineup.

Wide midfielder Hector Villalba.

Attacking midfielder Pity Martinez. 

Striker Josef Martinez.
