Result: New York Red Bulls smash seven past hapless rivals New York City FC

New York City FC, a side managed by Patrick Vieira and featuring Andrea Pirlo, David Villa and Frank Lampard, are thrashed 7-0 by city rivals New York Red Bulls.

New York Red Bulls have thrashed city rivals New York City FC 7-0 in Saturday's MLS derby at the Yankee Stadium.

Despite boasting marquee players such as Andrea Pirlo, David Villa and Frank Lampard, Patrick Vieira's charges fell behind as early as the third minute after Dax McCarty headed past goalkeeper Josh Saunders.

Bradley Wright-Phillips, brother of ex-England international Shaun, then struck a brace as the Red Bulls led their New York rivals 3-0 at half time.

Jesse Marsch's side continued to run riot after the restart, as poor NYCFC defending led to McCarty heading home from another corner in the 51st minute.

From then on the Sky Blues crumbled as Alex Muyl made it five just before the hour, before substitute Gonzalo Veron headed into an empty net from four yards out and Gideon Baah added a seventh from close range.
