New York City FC 0-7 New York Red Bulls

Frank Lampard
Frank Lampard has been called the worst MLS signing ever by several US media outlets

Frank Lampard was jeered by his own fans as his New York City side were humiliated 7-0 by New York Red Bulls.

Substitute Lampard, 37, was making his first appearance of the season in the week it was revealed that he earns $6m (£4.1m) - more than the entire Red Bulls squad.

Patrick Vieira's City - who started with fellow big names Andrea Pirlo and David Villa - had 57.7% of possession.

Bradley Wright-Phillips scored twice for the Red Bulls.

The former Manchester City striker now has 50 goals in MLS - one fewer than Thierry Henry managed for the same club.

Red Bulls were already 5-0 up when ex-Chelsea and England midfielder Lampard, who had been out with a calf injury, replaced Pirlo with 15 minutes remaining.

The win equals the record for the biggest margin in MLS history.

Los Angeles Galaxy beat Dallas Burn 8-1 in 1998 while Chicago Fire beat Kansas City Wizards 7-0 in 2001.

Lampard, Pirlo and Villa are all in the league's top 10 earnersexternal-link, with Red Bulls' top earner Wright-Phillips in contrast set to make $650,000 (£448,000) this season.
