Villa scored from the penalty spot in the eighth minute and then netted in the 58th minute during New York City FC's 2-0 win at Toronto on Saturday.

Villa took a game-high five shots, with three on target, and he now has six goals on the season, with four coming in his last four games. NYC FC have three wins and a draw over that span, and Villa leading the attack has been a huge part of the recent run of form.

Villa took seven shots, registered an assist, and ultimately scored his fourth goal of the season during Saturday's 3-1 victory over the Impact.

Villa is one of the most explosive offensive players in the MLS and he proved it with Saturday's lucrative outing. Next up for NYC FC is a match against Toronto on Saturday.

Villa took four unsuccessful shots during Saturday's 2-1 win over Philadelphia.

The 34-year-old has now taken a total of 44 shots on 11 appearances this season but has just three goals to his credit. Nevertheless, the Spaniard is a threat to score in every game and should be held in high regard across all formats.

David Villa said Thursday that he is fully recovered from his hamstring injury and believes he can play a full match Sunday against the Red Bulls, according to the New York Daily News. "I feel good," Villa said. "I'll be able to go 90."

Villa missed a number of games with the ailment and then came off the bench last Sunday against Seattle. The NYC FC attack is obviously much more potent when Villa is on the pitch, and it appears he'll be there for the big NY derby.

Villa is unlikely to play Friday against Chicago because of his hamstring injury, reports.

Villa suffered a setback with a previous injury last Thursday against Philadelphia and was then held out of Sunday's game against Portland. Manager Jason Kreis noted that Villa is working on his own and has not joined with full team training yet, which he will obviously have to do before a return is considered. If he does sit out, his next opportunity to play will come May 3 against Seattle.

Villa (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Portland, according to the New York Post.

Villa was highly questionable after being forced out of Thursday's game against Philadelphia due to the ailment. Khiry Shelton, Patrick Mullins and Tony Taylor will start up top in the 4-3-3.

Villa (hamstring) remains questionable for Sunday's game against Portland, reports.

Villa aggravated a previous issue during Thursday's match against Philadelphia, and while he has not been ruled out for Sunday's game, it seems like a bit of a long shot that he will play.

Villa was removed at halftime of New York City FC's match against Philadelphia on Thursday after aggravating his previous groin injury, according to the New York Post.

Villa was a popular pick in season-long games because of his double-gameweek, but it now seems like a long shot that he'll play Sunday night against Portland. Kwame Watson-Siriboe came on for Villa on Thursday, though it's no guarantee he'll get the weekend start.
