Major League Soccer power rankings — week eleven

These are a couple days old, but in case you missed them in print or online, here they are. Rankings and records are from before last night’s MLS games.

* * *

1. (1) Los Angeles Galaxy 9-0-2

With a big 2-0 win at Columbus, has Bruce Arena already locked up MLS Coach of the Year?

2. (2) Columbus Crew 6-1-2

Unbeaten so far on the road, but travel to San Jose and Colorado for two tough games before the World Cup break.

3. (4) Real Salt Lake 6-3-1

Will be sad to see the month of May go after winning all five games and scoring 14 goals.

4. (5) Colorado Rapids 5-3-1

Defense has definitely picked up an underachieving offense with just seven goals allowed.

5. (8) Toronto FC 5-4-1

Quietly one of the hottest teams in the league with 10 points earned in its past four games.

6. (3) San Jose Earthquakes 5-3-1

After sobering 3-1 loss at home to Toronto, must now play two tough games in a short week.

7. (6) Houston Dynamo 5-5-1

Have dubious distinction of allowing Philly’s first-ever road win, in stoppage time, no less.

8. (7) New York Red Bulls 5-5-0

That’s four losses in a row now for Hans Backe’s team, being outscored 11-3 in the process.

9. (10) FC Dallas 2-6-2

The only team in the league with an even goal-differential also has an MLS-most six draws.

10. (11) Chicago Fire 2-3-4

Needed bad calls to tie Dallas. Is even with Seattle for the most disappointing team so far.

11. (9) Sounders FC 3-5-3

Will scoring woes improve at home? Maybe. Guys in green have just 4 goals at Qwest Field.

12. (14) New England Revolution 3-6-2

Come to Seattle down to its 3rd-string goalkeeper after devastating injury to Preston Burpo.

13. (12) Kansas City Wizards 2-5-2

Downhill tumble just continues after a 4-1 loss to Salt Lake; winless now in seven straight.

14. (13) Chivas USA 3-7-1

That’s now three consecutive matches allowing a game-winner in the final minutes. Yikes.

15. (15) Philadelphia Union 2-5-1

It’s always interesting with only MLS team that has hasn’t played either a 1-0 or 0-0 game

16. (16) D.C. United 2-8-0

Entrenched in last despite 3-2 win over the weekend. Still has as many home wins as Seattle
