The New York Cosmos will host the Jersey Express this season, with a date against New York City FC awaiting the winner. The boys in green will be without a regular starter, however, as Ayoze is serving a one-match suspension following a red card in last year's fifth round match against the Philadelphia Union.

Without Ayoze, the Cosmos will likely move Hunter Gorskie to left back, while welcoming right back Hunter Freeman back to the starting lineup. Other options would include using Jimmy Mulligan on the left, or inserting Samuel Caceres into the eleven in place of either Freeman or Gorskie.
We'll have more on the match as game time approaches, but I'd anticipate a near full strength lineup against the Express. With a home match against New York's newest MLS side waiting, I wouldn't have it any other way.
