New England Revolution top in the East after 6-game streak

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WHDH) -

After opening their season with just one win in their first five games the New England Revolution have bounced back by going unbeaten over their last six games and are now sitting in first place in the Eastern Conference.

“I think we put a lot of pressure on teams, when we get the ball on the ground and move it quickly. I think we're one of the best teams in the league as far as creating chances and finishing them off,” Revolution forward Patrick Mullins said.

The Revs have scored ten goals in the last two games. They’re the third team in MLS history to score five goals in back-to-back games.

“It is amazing that it's not just one person scoring it’s all five of us, it's different players. Even defenders, two defenders score for us so it’s great we’re getting all these chances,” Revolution midfielder Diego Fagundez said.

The Revolution defense has been absolutely stellar especially at Gillette Stadium. They're the only team in the MLS that hasn't allowed a goal at home this year

“This is something we take pride in is defending our home field. Our fans get behind us and we feel like when we play at home we should take the game to the other team and really put them on the defensive. We defend well by attacking, keeping the ball in the opposition's half,” defender Chris Tierney said.

The Revs will host D.C. United this Saturday. United won the first meeting which was the last time New England lost a game before their current streak.
