Loss, injury could spell change
Preview: Minnesota United is back after a bye week and plays the fourth of five road games that start this season. It heads east now after going 2-1 on a West Coast trip after included a 3-2 loss two weeks ago to the L.A. Galaxy. Expect lineup changes; coach Adrian Heath promised them after a bad first half in Los Angeles. Midfielder Rasmus Schuller is out with an injured thigh suffered with his Finland national team. That could mean Ethan Finlay’s first start since he tore his ACL a year ago at Schuller’s spot. Changes could come up top as well, where Angelo Rodriguez and Abu Danladi impressed off the bench in L.A. … A bye week was the last thing Danladi needed after 16 impressive minutes in his first action this season. “When you play after having not played for a long time, you get in rhythm,” he said. “I’m looking forward to this game so I can build off that.”…The Revolution’s 0-3-1 start is its worst in 18 years, and coach Brad Friedel called out his players after Sunday’s 2-0 loss to expansion Cincinnati. New England is 0-2 at home. “I know what’s coming this week” after Friedel’s words, Loons coach Adrian Heath said. “He questioned players’ work ethic and attitude. I know what players are like. Once you start to accuse them, I guarantee their training has been full on this week.”…The Revolution’s Cody Cropper is from Maple Grove, and Teal Bunbury grew up in Prior Lake.
Injuries: Midfielders Schuller (thigh) and Kevin Molino (knee) are out for United FC. So are Revolution MF Isaac Angking (knee) and F Justin Rennicks (hamstring).
