That defender is Jack Elliott and since he had earned his spot in the Philadelphia Union starting XI, he hasn’t looked back. Since Elliott took a starting role next to Oguchi Onyewu on April 15th against New York City FC, the defense has solidified while being the major catalyst behind the Philadelphia Union’s season turnaround.
Looking into statistics, Elliott has started 13 games for the Philadelphia Union. In those games, the Union have allowed 12 goals and collected six clean sheets. That’s an average of .92 goals allowed per game. Kinda good right?
