It’s the oldest rivalry in MLS, and everyone here at D.C. United gets it.

“We’ve talked about it in team meetings,” said Preston Burpo. “This is a big deal for our club, this rivalry. This is the original rivalry of MLS. So, yeah that’s been discussed and guys are excited.”

In order to look forward to New York, we first have to look back at last weekend’s game against New England. Some things went well for the Black-and-Red and other things still need to improve.

In its fourth game of the season, United was able to take three points with a 2-0 victory over the New England Revolution. The Black-and-Red kept high pressure and created dangerous opportunities, eventually causing an own goal by New England. Then, in stoppage time, newly signed Chris Rolfe decided to seal the deal with a beautiful one-touch strike.
