Tonight the New England Revolution take on Chivas USA in Carson, California. The Revs are looking to build on last week's 3-2 win versus Sporting Kansas City and their midweek victory over DC United in the Open Cup, while Chivas USA are coming off an important 2-1 win over San Jose.

Andrew Sousa has been listed as probable for the contest, while Matt Reis makes an appearance on the questionable list, this time with a shoulder sprain. Pat Phelan is doubtful while battling concussion symptoms, and Marko Perovic is confirmed to be out with a left knee sprain.
