New York City FC looks to close in on the top of the MLS East table when the club visits the Seattle Sounders in a Sunday afternoon showdown.

New York City FC needs a win to see pace with Major League Soccer East Division leaders Atlanta United FC, when they travel across the country for an inter-divisional matchup with the Seattle Sounders FC in a battle of two of the hottest MLS teams in July, and a game that will live stream from Seattle on Sunday.

Though Seattle sits with six wins, five draws, and four losses at 10th place in the West, per the Sounder At Heart site, and 17th overall in the Supporter’s Shield race, the team has enjoyed a successful month, unbeaten in their last five matches with three wins and two draws.

New York, however, enters the road match as winners of four straight, recording 10 goals while conceding only three in their most recent five contests. But coming off a win just three days ago in Orlando, Florida, then making the single longest trip of the season for any MLS team, the New York City side could find its endurance tested, as Sounder At Heart reported.

Former Spain international David Villa is expected to miss his sixth straight game for New York City FC, after starting only 10 of the club’s 21 games so far this season, as Marca.com reported, posing a further issue for the squad’s depth.

Despite New York City’s recent success, now trailing Atlanta United by just four points at the top of the MLS East table, Head Coach Dome Torrent ripped his team after Thursday’s narrow win over Orlando, according to the MLS Soccer site.

“I’m not happy with our performance because I can’t play that way. If you want to win MLS, even when [Orlando] play with 10 players, we play bad, really bad,” the Spaniard said. “Maybe it’s because we won 2-0 in the first half, I don’t know, but we have to improve, improve a lot. Believe me.”
