The defeat of New York City FC against New York Red Bulls has thrown into despair not only the fans but also the team that is in danger of suffering a severe psychological backlash. New York City FC has lost the Hudson River Derby and is now also out of the playoffs. In the last eight games, Ronny Deila's team has won only once. The budget in the derby also weighs a lot: in the last three games played, NYCFC has won only one point.

On Sunday, Deila's team went behind after 3 minutes for the goal of Cristian Casseres Jr and failed to recover a game that could have given the decisive turning point in this season finale.

But New York City FC failed to react. Ronny Deila is now calling the team to stick together, even though there are only five games to go until the end of the regular season and reaching the playoffs now seems almost impossible.
