New York City FC Head Coach Ronny Deila:

On the game...

"As a coach you have to try and put yourself in situations that you have a good chance to win the game. That means you have to create more than the opponent, keep them away from getting chances and create something yourself. I think we did that very good today. I think the team was playing very good through the game. We don't get what we deserved in the end. Having said that, it's happened a lot of times now. Where we are dominant inside the boxes. We are taking the possession in the game as well, in their half all the time. We need to believe in what we're doing. This is the way forward to be a top team and win trophies. You need to control games on the ball and defend high up on the pitch when you have opportunities to do that. We weren't effective enough and they were really effective. I feel a little bit sad for the players because we deserved more. We're gonna play so many games now. It's keep on believing. Keep on improving the thing we can improve. We know what that is. The small things inside the boxes. Keep on being disciplined and organized, like we were today."

New York City FC Defender Anton Tinnerholm:

On frustrations after two losses...

"It's tough mentally when you the feeling after every game is that we're better than them. You look at the stats, you look at the expected goals, look at everything. It's not like we can change anything like we play, but this last thing is missing and it's really, really frustrating. The best part is now is that it's a new game on Wednesday and we want some revenge on Montreal. It's a lot of games coming up, and we have to bounce back directly."
