New York City Football Club Head Coach Ronny Deila believes his side will face a tough game on Wednesday against D.C. United.

“It's a tough, tough game,” he said. “A lot of similarities from what they’ve been doing before and it's still a very direct and pressing team. There is a lot of energy and quality upfront. Their two fullbacks are also very very good. So they have to have a good team.”

He later added: “They are tough to play against because they're very direct - you lose the ball and you win the ball a lot. Then it's about how we deal with transitions offensively and defensively. How quickly do we react? How good are we at winning second balls? When you win it, find a blue shirt to play with. It’s a challenging opponent to play against.”
