The New York Red Bulls found their way back to winning in Week 7 of MLS 2017 and back to the affections of the selectors of the league's official Team of the Week.

For the occasion of his first goal of the season, Alex Muyl was named to the bench of this week's official all-MLS Best XI.

Muyl is the fifth Red Bull to catch the eye of MLS TotW so far this season. Felipe made the bench in Weeks 1 and 2; Luis Robles and Tyler Adams got among the subs for Week 4. Aaron Long is the only RBNY player to win selection to the TotW starting lineup, for his Week 4 performance against Real Salt Lake.

In his second year as a pro, Muyl has made seven appearances in all competitions for RBNY to date this season. His goal against D.C. United was just the second to be scored by a Red Bull not named Bradley Wright-Phillips in 2017.
