The New York Red Bulls return home looking to keep their unbeaten start going when they face the Houston Dynamo at Red Bull Arena. Missing a host of starters, the Red Bulls reached a scoreless draw at Columbus last weekend. The Dynamo took their first point of the campaign last time out, playing to a draw at the Seattle Sounders.

Calen Carr joined his new Houston Dynamo teammates for his first training session Monday at the Carl Lewis Track & Field Complex.

Carr watched the session alongside trainer Theron Enns while still nursing a concussion that sidelined him for part of the preseason. Not being able to participate has not dampened the newest Dynamo forward's desire to get back to action and contribute to his new club.

The Houston Dynamo attack had a tough time gaining traction Friday night at Qwest Field in their 1-1 draw in Seattle. The host Sounders outshot the Dynamo 26-6 on the night, and Houston managed just two shots on goal in the match. One of those was enough to earn the draw, but it certainly did not ease concerns for the club going forward.

Thanks
to Major League Soccer’s new game-day statistics partner Opta, there is a lot
more data to be had about MLS games in 2011. Here are a few quick observations
from Friday night’s Houston-Seattle match:

Some
of the top-line stats are exactly what you would expect. Seattle outshot the
Dynamo by a convincing 26-6 margin and, facing that kind of firepower, Houston
recorded six blocked shots. Seattle had the edge in corners (12-1) and open
play crosses (21-7).

home.
