Major League Soccer power rankings — week twenty-six

1. (1) Real Salt Lake 13-4-8

Home unbeaten streak at 23; hasn’t allowed a goal since Aug. 11, a run of 532 minutes.

2. (2) FC Dallas 10-2-12

Continued its fine form against N.Y., but knee injury to GK Kevin Hartman is big concern.

Needed late comeback at home against lowly D.C., but were first to clinch playoff berth.

4. (5) New York Red Bulls 12-8-5

First a fine of $2K, then a knee injury. Not a good week for high-priced star Thierry Henry.

5. (4) Columbus Crew 13-7-5

Have lost just once in last nine games (5-1-3) to slowly sneak back into playoff picture.

10. (11) Toronto FC 8-10-7

With two stunning free-kick goals, Dwayne De Rosario is legitimate MVP contender.

11. (10) Chicago Fire 6-9-8

In freefall mode: no goals in 272 min., winless streak at 6, didn’t get a shot on goal last game.

12. (12) Chivas USA 7-13-4

Could spread its own disappointment to others in role of spoiler in final weeks.

13. (15) Philadelphia Union 6-12-6

Expansion side has pieces to build around (Le Toux, Mwanga) after up-and-down Year One.

14. (14) Houston Dynamo 6-13-5

Even in meaningless late-season games, 17-year-old rookie Andy Najar continues to shine.
