New York City FC is ready for the first game of the new season. However, Ronny Deila will have to make his debut against DC United without six players.
Ronny Deila will be without Brazilian striker Héber as he continues his recovery from the knee injury he sustained last year. He is joined on the sidelines by fellow countryman Thiago awaiting a visa.
Elsewhere, new signing Cody Mizell is absent with a groin problem, while Gedion Zelalem, Justin Haak and Tony Rocha will also miss the trip to the capital.
