ANALYST

The MLS is back in action with another set of fixtures this week as New York City FC take on Chicago Fire on Wednesday. The two teams have experienced contrasting fortunes this year and will want to win this game.

Chicago Fire are in 12th place in the MLS Eastern Conference standings and have not been at their best this season. The hosts played out a 0-0 stalemate against Nashville SC in their previous game and have a point to prove in this match.

New York City FC, on the other hand, are in third place in the league table at the moment and have exceeded expectations this year. The away side suffered a 1-0 defeat in the Hudson River Derby over the weekend and will need to bounce back this week.
