New York City vs San Jose player ratings

A pair of New York City attacking players received ratings over 9.0, yet neither player was in Nick Cushing's Starting XI. It’s been that kind of streak for a team that has won five in a row.

New York City FC player ratings are determined by Hudson River Blue readers: Here are your NYCFC player ratings from the 5-1 thumping of the San Jose Earthquakes at Yankee Soccer Stadium, New York City's fifth straight win.

It was a fifth straight win for New York City FC at Yankee Soccer Stadium on Matchday 16, and the 5-1 pasting of the San Jose Earthquakes meant some very high numbers in your player ratings.

A scoreless match at halftime became a goal-fest after the break, resulting in two attacking players receiving ratings over 9.0. Interestingly, neither of those players was included in Nick Cushing's Starting XI.

When two substitutes are graded so highly, it stands to reason the coach who sent them on also gets a high grade, which was the case for Cushing. The NYCFC head coach tied his highest rating ever across the two seasons we've conducted these post-match surveys.

This has been a period in which almost everything has gone right for New York City, and they've been getting contributions from all across the roster. That spreading of the proverbial wealth was evident in these ratings, as 11 of the 16 involved NYCFC players rated at or above a 7.0.

Read on for the full ratings from a dominant Friday night in the Bronx for the home team.
