On Keaton Parks' development...

"The last 10 games he has been one of the best players on the team. He [covers] a lot of space. He always looks forward. He gets into positions. He is steady on the ball. Tight, good touches. He's growing every day. He's now a really good player, but he's going to be even better if he keeps working the way he does. I thought the midfield today with Ringy [Alex Ring], Keaton and Jesus was good. They controlled the midfield and its easier to control the game as well."

New York City FC Midfielder Keaton Parks:

On his performance tonight...

"I felt really comfortable tonight. I felt really good going into the game. I think I took it upon myself, not so much because James is out, or that we had a different lineup, or that Maxi is out, or any of that...Maybe we started a little slow tonight, I just took responsibility to switch that up. I wanted us to get on the front foot. I knew we were the better team, so I just wanted to be that guy to get us out of it."
