Kenny Cooper's run of form against Toronto FC is both remarkable and, in terms of how much damage a single player has inflicted on any single MLS club, unmatched.

Over his past four MLS seasons, the FC Dallas big body has scored eight times against TFC, registering four braces, including three game-winning goals over three separate seasons.

Looking ahead to Saturday's match against league-leading FC Dallas, the Reds can take solace in the fact they’ll only have to deal with the high-flying Hoops — Cooper included — once this season. That is, unless a surprise MLS Cup run is in the cards.

Beyond Cooper, TFC’s embattled back four will have to account for six additional Dallas scorers — proof the Texans have the potential to hurt opposing clubs in countless ways.
