Rate the U: New England sweep

Cory Burke scored thanks to VAR and Andre Blake came up big in goal to keep the Philadelphia Union streak going

MLS: New England Revolution at Philadelphia Union Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

It was hardly the complete performance put in a week ago against NYCFC, but the Philadelphia Union managed to pick up all three points while beating the New England Revolution for a third time this season on Saturday night.

Andre Blake was his typical fantastic self in goal, particularly when the Union needed him most to preserve a one-goal lead and Cory Burke made it seven goals in seven starts (he’s scored in all but one of those starts) with an assist from the video assistant referee, which ruled he was onside on the play where he was played in behind the defense by Haris Medunjanin and was able to take it in for a breakaway goal.

Medunjanin and captain Alejandro Bedoya continue to carry the team with their play in midfield while the partnerships of C.J. Sapong out wide and Cory Burke up top and Jack Elliott and Auston Trusty in central defense continue to pay dividends across what has now reached a four-game win streak in all competitions.
