In-form Harrison can find the net again for New York City

Patrick Vieira guided New York City to a first playoff appearance last season

Sky Sports 3 & Mix, 6pm

New York City are aiming to bounce back against Philadelphia Union after a disappointing draw at home to New England Revolution on Wednesday. They twice relinquished the lead and are in something of a slump after winning only one in their last five matches.

Philadelphia, by contrast, have been in terrific form, winning four of their last five matches, but they are also on a recovery mission after a midweek loss to Real Salt Lake.

Union will be buoyed by the fact that City have to play their third game in just six days and may be fatigued. Philadelphia have the ability to cause problems for the home side with the livewire CJ Sapong in attack.

However, considering City have Andrea Pirlo and Alexander Ring to slot back in midfield if needed, the value in the match could lie elsewhere.

Jack Harrison has been transformed by coach Patrick Vieira this season. He has been utilised high up the pitch, playing up front with David Villa, and has notched six times in 13 games.

He looks good value in the first-goalscorer market to find the net in his third consecutive match.
