Despite NYCFC's best efforts to secure the three points they met a dogged opponent in SKC. Deila took time to commend Sporting KC for their hard work off the ball and defensive strength. The visitors limited NYCFC to three attempts on target during the ninety minutes, with Deila admitting his side could have done more in the final third. 

“They work really hard,” Deila said. “You have to give credit to Kansas as well. They made it hard for us. They were strong upfront. They kicked a lot in behind to try and catch us out with the space in behind the defence. They did that in the beginning of the game and I think we adjusted well. They had maybe two or three chances so that’s ok defensively, but offensively we had a couple of big chances and we didn’t take them. It wasn’t our best day but at the same time we get a point.”
