New York City FC player ratings are determined by Hudson River Blue readers — here are your NYCFC player ratings after the torpid 0-0 draw with the New Jersey Red Bulls in the Bronx. 

Starting XI

Mounsef Bakrar (off 91′) – 5.2

Mounsef got in-behind a couple of times but was unable to test the keeper in any capacity really. I was hoping for a bit more from Mounsef on Saturday. FotMob gave a bang-average 6.1

Matías Pellegrini (off 66′) – 3.7

It was somewhat of a head-scratcher to see Matí Pellegrini start over the likes of Julián Fernández, Talles Magno, and Alonso Martínez. 

He didn’t contribute much going forward, was subbed out after 66 minutes, and picked up a yellow that will see him suspended from this Wednesday’s matchup vs Orlando City. Solid day at the office.

FotMob gave a 6.0 for the Argentine’s efforts.

Santiago Rodríguez – 5.7

I thought Santi looked okay on Saturday, and showed some signs of danger to the Red Bull backline. But, he’s just not pulling the strings like we need him to as a Designated Player these days.

Last season, he took games by the scruff of the neck and got us big goals in big moments. This year, he’s just lacking that final product. FotMob gave a 6.1.
