NYCFC vs Vancouver Whitecaps Player Ratings

Mounsef Bakrar's nifty nutmeg-the-keeper-goal earned him POTM honors.

Two goals in two games ain't bad |

New York City FC player ratings are determined by Hudson River Blue readers — here are your NYCFC player ratings after the wasteful 1-1 draw with Vancouver Whitecaps in the Bronx. 

Starting XI

Mounsef Bakrar (off 74′) – 7.2

NYCFC’s shiny new striker scored his second goal in as many games: It’s good to see Mounsef Bakrar in the lineup. And it’s maybe a little concerning that the fans grew accustomed to a toothless attack that they swoon like teenagers in love when they see a forward doing forward things. FotMob gave the striker a 7.3.

Andres Jasson – (off 56′) – 4.5

From here to zero 4.5 in just three days: Your POTM on Wednesday was a source of frustration on this disappointing afternoon. It wasn’t just that Andres Jasson skied a sitter he should have converted, it’s that he looked a little lost out there. The Connecticut Kid was pulled off early in the second half, and earned a 6.0 from FotMob.

Santiago Rodríguez – 6.1

NYCFC’s No 10 was back in the Starting XI, and he looked ok. As in, he was fine. We’re still waiting for Santiago Rodríguez, Designated Player, to step up and grab a game by the horns. In the meantime, we get solid performances like this one. FotMob gave the midfielder a 7.3

Maxi Moralez  – 7.4

The NYCFC playmaker was back in the starting lineup and pulling the strings in the midfield. Hindsight is 20/20, but it’s hard to write about the afternoon’s performance without fixating on the knock he suffered in the dying minutes of the game — and that seemingly will send him to get season-ending knee surgery

A less wasteful NYCFC would have been protecting a lead, not chasing a win. But after the attack failed to convert chances throughout the game, the 36-year-old Maxi Moralez lunged to get a ball and give the team one last chance — and couldn’t leave the field under his own power. FotMob gave the NYCFC legend a 7.5 for the second game in a row.
