Midfielders

Hany Mukhtar leads all players with 188 points, and the Nashville SC playmaker is coming off a monster 21-point haul versus Toronto FC in his last appearance. He’s scored or assisted in each of Nashville’s last five home games, racking up four goals and three assists over that span.

Look for Mukhtar to continue to carry the Boys in Gold at home against Minnesota United FC on Sunday (9 pm ET | FS1, FOX Deportes).

Forwards

Lorenzo Insigne opened his MLS account with the game-winning goal in Toronto FC’s 4-3 win at Nashville last round. He now has a goal and an assist in limited minutes through his first three MLS games.

A home game against a Portland Timbers team that shipped four goals in their last road match could see the Italian star forward make his mark at BMO Field for the first time.
