ANALYST

New York City FC are back in action with another MLS fixture this weekend as they take on DC United on Saturday. Both teams have been inconsistent this season and will want to win this game.

DC United are in seventh place in the MLS Eastern Conference standings and have not been at their best this year. The away side suffered a 3-2 defeat against New England Revolution last week and will want to bounce back in this match.

New York City FC, on the other hand, are in eighth place in the league table at the moment and have slumped after a strong start to their campaign. The hosts suffered a 1-0 defeat in the Hudson River Derby and cannot afford another debacle in this fixture.
