All of this leaves Jim Curtin’s team five points clear at the top of the east, just three adrift LAFC it the race for the Supporters’ Shield.

So, Atlanta United be warned, Chester isn’t a particularly fun place to visit right now.

All five goals came in the second 45, with Alan Franco, Josef Martínez and Juan Sánchez Purata nodding home for the hosts, the first time an MLS club has scored 3+ header in the same game.

MartĂ­nez personally has now scored eight times against D.C. United, the joint-most against a single opponent.

So, anything other than an emphatic Philadelphia win would be a major surprise.
