The battering suffered in Toronto was a rare misstep for New York City FC,
who rapidly returned to their winning habits, with their midfield formed by Alexander Ring and Yangel Herrera.
The way Patrick Vieira has read the needs of his roster in order to become more competitive, shows us that the French manager has the right attitude to work in the Major League Soccer, which is understanding the context and adapting to it, with the needed reply.
The Citizens have won 3-2 in the New York derby and then went to LA, where they have beaten the Galaxy 2-0.
Now they will host a team that has the worst away record in the whole Western Conference, since they have got 3 draws and not a single win in 11 matches played as visitors.
The New England Revolution are a strange side. Despite having in their roster some of the most talented and exciting players of the MLS, such as Diego Fagundez or Lee Nguyen, a veteran striker, a tough midfield and a promising goalkeeper, the Revs are still struggling to stay in matches and to be competitive.
That hurts their ambitions, which are still high, despite their position in the table, as it is shown by their most recent signing, the Hungarian Nemeth, who can even make his debut this Sunday.
The pressure is constantly on now for manager Jay Heaps, who will have to show better, given the talent he has at his disposal.
New York City vs New England Revolution Pick:
For this match, the most likely outcome is the home win.
David Villa has, besides the security out back, the help of youngsters Jack Harrison and Jonathan Lewis, to help him get this win.
However, the propensity for defensive errors in the New York’s defence can also allow the Revs to get a goal.
But at the Yankee Stadium, and with a chance to get some advantage over their main rivals (since Chicago and Toronto will face off on Saturday), the Citizens must win this match.
