Six consecutive games without defeat for New York City FC. After the 4-0 defeat against Toronto, Domenec Torrent's team has completely changed gear. For New York City three draws against Montreal Impact, Minnesota United and Orlando City, and three wins against DC United, Chicago Fire and Montreal Impact. A positive trend that has propelled New York City FC to the top of the rankings. The Blues have collected 15 points in the standings and are five points from the top but with one less game still to play compared to Philadelphia Union and DC United currently the top two teams in the standings.

The situation for New York City FC has completely reversed. After a disappointing start to the season, Domenec Torrent was able to find the right solution. The 3-4-3 adopted by the Blues coach was the winning move. The team is more loose in the game, manages to keep the field and possession better. Furthermore, having unlocked the first victory gave greater confidence to the whole environment. The mind of the players is free, there is no weight of having to win by force even if the goal is always to win every game. New York City FC then flies and is undoubtedly the most fit team of the moment. The City is now expected by a major new test against Zlatan Ibrahimovic's LA Galaxy. A game that will tell a lot about the real potential of the team.
