It's stats time, folks. Let's dig into the most interesting numbers from across the league.

Dante Vanzeir: +3.2

The New York Red Bulls put together a dominating display on Saturday, defeating an admittedly depleted Inter Miami side 4-0 in the pouring rain. Lewis Morgan had a hat-trick against his former team and the Red Bulls did plenty of damage, even without star DP playmaker Emil Forsberg and starting left back John Tolkin. 

Alongside Morgan, Dante Vanzeir had a strong performance with four assists on the night in just his third start of the year. The Belgian striker became the first player in club history and just the eighth player in league history to accomplish that feat.

Just remarkable.
