New York City FC Head Coach Ronny Deila:

On performance tonight...

"I think it speaks for itself that they played well. Mitriță played really well in the #10 role. Isi worked good and was involved on the front end on the right side. We were more effective tonight than we have been in the other games. When you score early, it is easier to get more goals. The whole team performance was really good. We didn't give them anything, keep on holding clean sheets, and then when we start scoring as well then that's another step in the right direction."

New York City FC Forward Ismael Tajouri-Shradi:

On being back in the starting eleven...

"It has been great. I have been waiting such a long time. I am more than happy to be back and start some games. Last one was two months ago or more than two months. I am really happy to be back in the starting eleven and get some minutes. I can't wait to get some more minutes in the next few games. It has not been an easy time for me, I am just happy to be back in the team and can't wait to get some points."
