David Villa leads comeback effort, tops Audi Player Index

New York City FC forward David Villa leads the way in the Audi Player Index.

Villa tallied twice in a 2-1 win over Seattle, the 50th and 51st goals of his MLS career. It was a comeback victory, with Villa scoring in the 52nd and 77th minutes to overcome a 1-0 deficit. The win was a bounce back for NYCFC, which lost 1-0 in its previous game to its local rival, the Red Bulls.

Villa needed the fifth-fewest games to reach 50 regular-season goals (78). The four players who reached that mark faster, per the Elias Sports Bureau's research, are Raul Diaz Arce (67), Carlos Ruiz (69), Roy Lassiter (75) and Taylor Twellman (77).

Villa currently leads MLS with 67 shots. He has more than twice as many shots as anyone else on his team. His 10 goals are tied for second in the league to Chicago's Nemanja Nikolic (13).

He'll likely lead New York this season. He trailed Red Bulls rival Bradley Wright-Phillips by one goal in 2016. Villa's four goals on the road trail only Romain Alessandrini's five for LA Galaxy.
