Coming off a 2-1 win over Los Angeles FC, New York City will aim to carry on that momentum when they welcome New England Revolution to the Red Bull Arena on Sunday.
The New England Revolution have been impressive so far and will be looking to extend their winning streak to four games in the MLS.
New York City ended their three-game unbeaten run last time out when they claimed a 2-1 win away to Los Angeles FC.
After Corey Baird gave Los Angeles the lead in the 56th-minute, Jason Kreis' men turned the game around through goals from Jesus Medina and Ismael Tajouri-Shradi.
This helped New York City rise to fourth place in the Eastern Conference table, one point behind third-placed Orlando City.
Meanwhile, New England Revolution have enjoyed a blistering start to the new MLS campaign.
They sit at the summit of the Eastern Conference table with a three-point cushion on second-placed Philadelphia Union.
Bruce Arena's men made it three wins from three outings last time out when they beat Cincinnati 1-0 at TQL Stadium .
Polish forward Adam Buksa scored the only goal of the game in the 70th minute to cap off an impressive team display.
The New England Revolution will now aim to continue this fine form and strengthen their position at the top of the table.
