New York City vs DC United player ratings

Santiago Rodríguez not only had a goal and an assist, he was the engine that powered New York City FC's win — and he's your POTM.

New York City FC player ratings are determined by Hudson River Blue readers: Here are your NYCFC player ratings after the impressive 2-0 win in Queens over a dangerous DC United.

Funny what a well-executed win will do to your player ratings, which climbed considerably over the ones you handed out last week after the 2-0 win over the New England Revolution. Same result, same score, different vibe: The squad we watched play on Saturday night were more composed and creative, and your numbers show it.

It was mostly 6s last week, and mostly 7s now. Even more interesting to the Behavioral Science and Statistics divisions here at HRB, your numbers are close to those produced by the FotMob algorithm. Usually, half of your ratings are 1 to 2 points lower than those of FotMob. This week it's more like .2 points, and some align perfectly.

One exception is Mounsef Bakrar. You rated him a 5.2, while FotMob gave him a 7.2. The striker might have one of the best xGs in Major League Soccer, but he has yet to score in nine appearances, and it looks like the hockey assist he provided to Santiago Rodríguez's opening goal wasn't enough for him to earn your love.

Note: FotMob ratings are in parentheses.
