New York City Football Club Head Coach Ronny Deila has challenged his players to match the intensity of their upcoming opponents San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday.

“Obviously it’s a bit difficult but they haven't been so different from what they were before,” Deila said of the team’s tactical approach under Covelo. “I've seen their last game when they beat Seattle – they’re a very good, aggressive team. There are a lot of legs in the team, they're aggressive in pressing. They press man against man almost all over the pitch, and maybe there will be some changes to that, but this is going be a totally different game than we had against Real Salt Lake and Toronto. It’s going to be more of a Philadelphia, Red Bull game, and that's something we have to be up for. We have to match that intensity, we have to match that fight if we’re going to get three points.”
