NYCFC need more from the fullbacks

This stretch of seven matches in 21 days is putting New York City FC’s depth at fullback through a real-time stress test. A number of injuries and absences at the two shallowest positions on the club’s depth chart have forced Ronny Deila to make some tough decisions. Thus far, the team and the defense’s results have been impossible to quibble with, as the club have notched clean sheets in their last four MLS matches, are unbeaten in eight across all competitions, and once again look like the class of the Eastern Conference.

While the team has thrived and is currently living its best post-CONCACAF Champions League life, the available pool of left- and right-backs still looks like a bit of a mess.
