Stay compact

This is another big test on the road for the 'Caps.

It will be a small and narrow pitch at Yankee Stadium.

This should make staying compact easier, a big key for this match.

Ryan Gauld is magic

The form of Gauld has been terrific.

He has 10 goals and nine assists in his last 14 matches in all competitions. In MLS, he leads the league in goal contributions since May 31 with 16 (nine goals and seven assists).

He's fast becoming an MLS MVP candidate. We need to keep the wee man on the ball as often as possible.

Road warriors

We can see a shift in the mindset playing away from home.

Staying hard to beat will be key.

But just as important, the pace of our counterattack has been very good, we just need to continue taking our chances.
