Last weekend saw New York City lose 3–1 at New England Revolution, with that loss making it 2 wins, 2 draws, and 2 defeats in their last 6 fixtures in the MLS. All of these failures to win have come away from home though, and at home they are actually on a five match winning streak and have scored an impressive 14 goals. As regards team news, Right back Shannon Gomez and holding midfielder Connor Brandt remain sidelined for the hosts.
Meanwhile, FC Dallas are in prime position to claim the Supporters Shield after they missed out on goal difference last term. Their 4–2 win in midweek saw them clinch the US Open Cup to give them that extra boost of confidence as well. Last weekend did see them lose 1–0 at home to Colorado Rapids, but their two wins prior to that game kept them a comfortable margin above the chasing pack. The visitors currently have a four point advantage over LA Galaxy below them and a five point lead on the Eastern Conference leaders Toronto FC. However, that defeat to Colorado Rapids could cost them dearly. The Rapids are just five points adrift of them and have two games in hand. Centre back Zach Loyd is still injured for FC Dallas.
