New York City missed out on the opporunity to add some pressure back on their title rivals last weekend. They faced MLS Western Conference leaders FC Dallas at home. The hosts took an early lead but ended up 2–1 down to Dallas going into the latter stages of the game. Hosts managed to score an equaliser with 12 minutes remaining, but it has to be seen as a missed chance. This stalemate made it three victories, three draws, and two losses in their last eight fixtures in the MLS, a streak which has seen Toronto FC and New York Red Bulls catch them up in the standings. They are currently two points adrift of leaders Toronto FC, but the leaders have a game in reserve as well. As regards team news, midfielders Frank Lampard and Connor Brandt are sidelined, along with Shannon Gomez and Maxime Chanot.
Meanwhile, Chicago Fire remain in their usual whereabouts: The cellar of the MLS Eastern Conference table. They finished in this place last season and have occupied it for the vast majority of this term, with only little hope for the fans. As regards injury news for this fixture, the visitors are expecting to have a fully fit squad available for selection on Friday night.
