David Villa: Outmanned, not Outmatched | Inside the Audi Player Index

Twelve minutes into their home match vs. conference rival Chicago Fire, Yangel Herrera was shown a 2nd yellow card and New York City FC found themselves a man down.

Anyone watching may have expected NYC to spend the remaining 78 minutes absorbing pressure from a high-powered Chicago attack. Instead, David Villa led his team to a 2-1 victory, registering six shots, five key passes and the opening goal, and his team walked away with a full three points. Check out his best moments on this episode of Inside the Audi Player Index.
