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.

Villa had two goals on six shots, one assist, three crosses and one foul drawn during NYC FC's 5-3 win over Orlando City on Sunday.

Villa had a tremendous bounce back game after the Revolution held him without a shot attempt last weekend. Villa has now bagged a brace in four of his last six matches, and his 12 goals on the season trail only Kei Kamara (15) and Sebastian Giovinco (12).

Villa failed to take a single shot but had five crosses and two fouls drawn during NYC FC's 1-0 loss at New England on Saturday.

Villa came into the game with four goals in his last two games and six goals in his last four, but the Revs did a great job of limiting him, which was aided after Ned Grabavoy was sent off in the 55th minute. He'll look to bounce back next Sunday against Orlando City, which should be the MLS debuts of both Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo.

Villa took two shots and scored twice during NYC FC's 2-1 victory at Montreal on Saturday. He also added two crosses and drew four fouls.

Villa has been in excellent form of late, scoring four goals in his last three games and six in his last six. NYC FC will get a major boost in the midfield as well, as Frank Lampard will make his debut Sunday against Toronto.

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.
