Muddled in Montreal - New York Red Bulls player ratings: @ Montreal Impact; MLS 2017, Week 14

The Red Bulls lost on the road again. The Player Ratings are not impressed.

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Red Bulls slipped to their seventh loss of MLS 2017, and sixth straight defeat away from home this season, thanks to a lapse in concentration in the second half that let Blerim Dzemaili in for his first league goal since joining Montreal Impact.

The Red Bulls didn't have much by way of answer to L'Impact's 67th-minute goal, and Montreal closed out the 1-0 win to send RBNY back home with another momentum-killing road loss to think about.

Luis Robles - 8

He couldn't do much about Dzemaili's goal, but he got to pretty much everything else that came his way. Let down once again by a defensive slip-up that cost him a clean sheet and the Red Bulls a point.

Kemar Lawrence - 7

Had a tough assignment trying to keep Dominic Oduro quiet, but Montreal's speedster doesn't often meet a full back who can chase him down.

Aaron Long - 7

Damien Perrinelle - 6

Michael Amir Murillo - 6

On another day, maybe BWP scores off the cross Murillo served in the 5th minute and RBNY is reflecting on a different result.

Felipe - 7

Sean Davis - 6

Built on last week's performance, looking generally steadier and more comfortable - more like his 2016 self - in midfield.

Mike Grella - 6

Sacha Kljestan - 5

Some distance from his best, and in his role as captain bears some responsibility for the team being a step behind Montreal in the events leading up to the goal.

Daniel Royer - 5

Bradley Wright-Phillips - 4

Didn't have a lot of chances and wasn't sharp enough with ones he got.


Alex Muyl - 4

Fredrik Gulbrandsen - 4

Gonzalo Veron - 4

Replacing Royer with Muyl almost as soon as RBNY fell behind seemed an odd move - it wasn't particularly clear what Muyl would add to the quest for an equalizer. The decision to bring Gulbrandsen and Veron on together for the last 15 minutes was a more positive decision, but also somewhat predictable.


Jesse Marsch - 4

Marsch remains the Sex Panther of MLS coaches.
