Minnesota vs. NYCFC, At the Back
One man who will miss this encounter is Alexander Callens, who remains on the injury list with a hamstring problem.
Sebastien Ibeagha did a solid job alongside Chanot vs. Montreal as the team captured its second clean sheet of the young season, so could be well-placed to continue deputizing for the Peruvian at the heart of the back four.
Another option could be Ben Sweat who has also been fielded at center-back in his time with the Club.
With Darwin Quintero expected back on the Loons’ side after injury, keeping things tight at the back will be important vs. a Minnesota team who’ve won three of their opening five MLS games.
