NYCFC vs Atlanta United player ratings

It was a draw that felt like a loss — and according to the xG should have been a win.

New York City FC player ratings are determined by Hudson River Blue readers — here are your NYCFC player ratings for the team's second consecutive 1-1 draw, this one against an Atlanta United missing Georgios Giakoumakis.

With a reported attendance of 21,497 at Citi Field, New York City at least came out ahead in one contest: The club comfortably outdrew their hosts the New York Mets, who managed just 15,020 fans for the double-header played on Thursday, and 16,853 fans the game before that.

Those 21,497 in the stands walked away disappointed in the performances of the New York City squad, and your ratings reflect that. We're once again including FotMob's ratings as a reference, and most of your numbers are a solid one to two points (or more) below those produced by the algorithm. You're a tough crowd.

You saved your harshest criticism for striker Mounsef Bakrar, who remains scoreless in six starts. The 23-year-old continues to make dangerous runs and put himself in good positions, and he continues to scuff the ball wide or sky it over the bar.
