Villa scored the opening goal on a team-high six shot attempts during Sunday's 2-1 win over Portland.

Villa's goal was a bit controversial, as RJ Allen appeared to handle the ball before sending an inch-perfect through ball to him, but he coolly slotted it home to tie for the league lead in scoring. He will head into Wednesday's match versus Toronto having scored six goals in his last six matches.

Villa scored both goals for NYCFC in Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Toronto.

Villa scored his first goal of the season with a penalty kick, and then just four minutes later he scored his second. Villa bagged 18 goals last season and surely has the upside to reach that level again.

Villa said he could be available for loan until March after New York FC failed to reach the MLS playoffs, according to the Daily Mail.

The veteran insisted that nothing was complete, but that he has been fielding a number of calls on the subject. He moved to the MLS from La Liga in 2014.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Villa (hamstring) will start in Saturday's game against the Earthquakes.

Villa has been sidelined with hamstring injury of late but NYC is facing elimination from the playoff race and desperately needs him on the pitch. With that, it's possible that Villa is playing while less than 100 percent, although Villa at less than full strength is still a valuable asset across all formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Villa (hamstring) is not in the 18-man squad to face Toronto on Wednesday.

Villa was questionable coming into the match due to the ailment, and he'll take a seat with the hope that he can recover in time to face San Jose at home on Saturday. Patrick Mullins will start against Toronto on Wednesday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Villa exited Saturday's game against FC Dallas with a minor hamstring injury, Dallas' TV broadcast reports.

Villa was replaced by Patrick Mullins at halftime more so as a precaution than an inability to play. His status will be monitored over the coming short week of training before Wednesday's game against Toronto, but he doesn't seem to be in any danger of missing significant time off the field.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Villa took a game-high six shots, with five on target, and he scored his 14th goal of the season during NYC FC's 3-1 win over D.C. United on Thursday.

Villa continues to be everything that NYC FC wanted when they signed him last year, as his goal tally now trails only Kei Kamara (17) and Sebastian Giovinco (14) in all of MLS, while he is also third in shots and second in shots on target.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Villa scored from the penalty spot in the 68th minute and then assisted on Tommy McNamara's 85th-minute goal during New York City FC's 3-2 loss to Montreal on Saturday.

Villa finished with seven shots, including three on goal, to continue his blistering form. He now has seven goals in his last five games, and 10 in his last eight. His 13 goals are second to only Kei Kamara (15) in Major League Soccer, and he'll look to close the gap next weekend against the Red Bulls, who Villa has not scored against this season in two games.
