The high-flying Philadelphia Union will seek to pick up a sixth MLS win on the trot when they travel to the BMO Field Stadium to face Toronto FC on Sunday.

The Reds, meanwhile, will look to get one over the visitors, having failed to win the last three meetings between the two teams.

Toronto were denied their third win on the spin last weekend, as they could only salvage a 2-2 draw away to Real Salt Lake. Before that, the Reds saw off DC United and New York City FC in their previous two outings, scoring four goals and conceding two.

With eight points from six games, Toronto are eighth in the Eastern Conference standings, level on points with seventh-placed Columbus Crew.

Meanwhile, Philadelphia maintained their sensational start to the season as they saw off Columbus Crew 1-0 last time out. They have now won their last five games and are the only unbeaten team in the East.

Philadelphia lead the way in their conference table after picking up 16 points from six games so far.
