Chicago Fire v New England Revolution: Acosta says composure key for misfiring hosts

Kellyn Acosta says the Chicago Fire need to be more precise with their ball progression if they are to end their barren run and begin to climb the MLS standings.

Frank Klopas’ team sit 12th in the Eastern Conference and have failed to win – or even find the net – in three matches ahead of Saturday’s clash with the New England Revolution.

Chicago scored nine goals in their first five MLS matches in 2024 but have since netted two in their last five, and midfielder Acosta says composure is the key to improving their attacking output.

“It’s a combination of moving the ball back to front and finding our forwards,” Acosta said.

“I feel like we’ve got to get them the ball in dangerous areas where they are bringing out their qualities, and I think we have not done a good job of progressing the ball to them.”
