MLS: Real Salt Lake at New York City FC Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rimando - 5.5 I don't remember very many particularly impressive saves from Rimando. He made a few stops in the first half, but mostly, NYC was off target. He nearly got a PK save on David Villa and you could tell he wanted it back.

Demar Phillips - 6 Phillips was pretty sharp, but was getting caught in some tough spots when NYC was pressuring.

Justen Glad - 5.5 Glad had a pretty decent night and was unlucky on the nutmeg goal, but it was a vast improvement from the Columbus game.

Aaron Maund - 5.5 Our CBs were not what I would call air tight on defense. Too many easy chances were coming for New York. On a positive note, Maund and Glad seem to be communicating better.

Chris Wingert - 4 Wingert did not have his best game against his former team. He gave the ball away cheaply in some critical spots, picked up a yellow, and seemed to fatigue as the game went on. He'll get back to normal in the next game I suspect.

Sunny Obayan - 7 Sunny had a very nice game except for one bad giveaway in the first half that gave NYC a good chance. But the highlight of the game for me was his pass to Yura that set up the comeback goal.

Javier Morales - 6.5 Morales didn't get on the stat sheet, but he was getting the ball in the right spots for good things to happen.

Luke Mulholland - 5 Mulholland was invisible for long stretches of the game, but it's not that he had a poor showing. He was simply doing some clean work in the middle.

Juan Manuel Martinez - 7 What a goal from Burrito. He took it off his chest and blasted it perfectly past a couple defenders to put RSL up much to the dismay of the City fans.

Yura Movsisyan - 7.5 Yura was involved in two of the three goals RSL had. On the goal that tied the game, he took a beautiful first touch off the pass from Sunny and used his skill and strength to score. On the own goal, he alleviated pressure and found Javi who sent the ball in. Otherwise, he simply led the team with his effort.

Joao Plata - 5 Plata had a strangely quiet game and was unable to really get things going all night. He drew some attention, but didn't have the ball at his feet very much.

Substitutes

Tony Beltran - 5.5 Tony came on for the last 20 minutes and took control of his side pretty quickly.

Devon Sandoval - N/A

John Stertzer - N/A
