NYCFC vs CF Montréal Player Ratings

The Connecticut Kid is your Player of the Match.

Two goals and counting |

New York City FC player ratings are determined by Hudson River Blue readers — here are your NYCFC player ratings after the emphatic 2-0 midweek win over CF Montréal at Yankee Soccer Stadium.

What a difference a game makes: Last week, your response was so anemic we decided to suspend the POTM award because there simply weren’t enough votes, but the electorate was back in force this week. Too bad regular Player Ratings writer John Baney is off trekking across the Alps — he would’ve enjoyed these numbers.

Starting XI

Mounsef Bakrar (off 84′) – 7.8

Finally, a striker doing striker things. Mounsef Bakrar got in behind the Montréal defenders, stretched the lines, harassed the goalkeeper. So what if he only managed three shots, and just two of those were on target. One of those found the back of the net in the 37th minute for the team’s second goal of the game — it was just the second time in 17 games that NYCFC have scored more than once. 

We could watch Baki’s first touch over and over again. FotMob gave the striker a 7.7.

Andres Jasson – (off 84′) – 8.0

Head coach Nick Cushing’s decision to start the Connecticut Kid over Julían Fernández, Alonso Martínez, and Matías Pellegrini was the right one. The 21-year-old took one shot and buried it for his second goal of the season — and his MLS career. FotMob gave the winger a 7.8 — this is one of the few examples of HRB readers being more generous than the algorithm. But then Andres Jasson went to Yale and knows a thing or two about grade inflation.
