New York City FC player ratings are determined by Hudson River Blue readers: These are your NYCFC player ratings from the comfortable 2-0 win over CF Montréal at Citi Field.

Home has been kind to New York City FC this season, and home wins like the in-control performance that beat CF Montréal 2-0 result in a generous set of scores in your player ratings.

The result didn't feel much in doubt once Alonso Martínez opened the scoring after 10 minutes. Montréal had few clear chances, credited with 0.9 expected goals (xG) and four shots on target. Their clearest and best opportunity to score was saved expertly by All-Star snub Matt Freese in the 19th minute, and after that, NYCFC was mostly in control.

Chances were easy to create for New York City, they produced 2.6 xG and had seven shots on target, though only their most clinical finisher and new clear-cut best striker option put them away.

Alonso Martínez starred and unsurprisingly was named Player of the Match, but the team was solid across the board, reflected in these ratings, with nine members of the Starting XI scoring at or above 7.0.
