The XI | Seven Changes for Season 5 Finale

xi anton Philly decision day

New York City FC heads to Talen Energy Stadium to take on the Philadelphia Union for the final match of the regular season. 

With playoffs on the horizon and a desire to go out on top, Dome Torrent has made seven changes to his starting lineup.

Taty Castellanos, Alex Ring, and Maxime Chanot have made their return to the XI after serving their one-game suspensions for yellow card accumulation. 

Anton Tinnerholm is also back with the squad and is fully fit once again after being out for two matches with an injury.

Along with Tinnerholm, James Sands is also fit enough to be on the team's roster going into decision day. He will be starting the night out on the bench, but he could play his first minutes back on the road against Philadelphia.

Ronald Matarrita will also be starting his night out on the bench so Ben Sweat will be taking his place in the defensive line. 

Meanwhile, Ismael Tajouri-Shradi and Ebenezer Ofori have received the nod from Torrent and have earned the start for the matchup, coming in for Alexandru Mitriță and Tony Rocha.

As the Boys in Blue look to finish the season on a high note, tune in to YES Network, FOX Sports Go, or come on out to Reichenbach Hall to cheer on NYCFC.

NYCFC XI: Johnson, Tinnerholm, Chanot, Callens, Sweat, Ring (C), Ofori, Moralez, Tajouri-Shradi, Castellanos, Héber 

Subs: Stuver, Ibeagha, Sands, Matarrita, Rocha, Medina, Mackay-Steven
