Result: New York City FC claim historic first win

Goals from David Villa and Patrick Mullins give New York City FC their first ever win with a 2-0 victory over New England Revolution.

Goals from David Villa and Patrick Mullins gave New York City FC their first ever win with a 2-0 victory over New England Revolution this evening.

Villa scored the Manchester City-affiliate side's first ever competitive home goal in the 18th minute when he fired a low shot past Revolution keeper Bobby Shuttleworth.

The former Barcelona and Valencia star almost doubled his account shortly after when he got on the end of cross before firing wide.

Shuttleworth was equal to Villa's effort after the hour mark as the Spaniard searched for his second of the game.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men in the second half when Jose Goncalves was dismissed for a challenge on Khiry Shelton as the City man was clean through on goal.

The New York outfit almost made it 2-0 late on but Adam Nemec could only find the side-netting when he flashed an effort goalwards.

However, ex-Revolution man Mullins finally doubled the lead late on when he pounced on a square pass from Villa to slot home and claim the first win for the side.
