My Major League Soccer power rankings — week 15

LA Galaxy Logo.jpg1. (1) Los Angeles Galaxy 9-2-7

Unbeaten in last nine and have been comfortably on top of the table since May 1.

2. (3) FC Dallas 8-4-4

Brek Shea, who’s played some defense, already has a career-high six goals.

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

Have just one win in the last seven games, but a dubious PK call vs. D.C. stole one.

4. (6) Seattle Sounders FC 6-4-7

Fredy Montero has scored four goals in five games against next opponent: New York.

5. (4) New York Red Bulls 5-2-8

Comes to Seattle without leading scorer Thierry Henry having tied five of last six games.

6. (2) Philadelphia Union 6-4-4

No place like home to recover from a loss to Vancouver. Unbeaten at PPL park (4-0-3).

7. (9) Columbus Crew 5-4-6

Often maligned DP Andrew Mendoza has four goals in five games leading a 2-1-2 run.

8. (7) San Jose Earthquakes 5-5-4

Matchup against No. 1 L.A. might not be so bad. 3-0-1 in the last four vs. the Galaxy.

9. (8) Colorado Rapids 5-4-7

Conor Casey is heating up. The star forward has scored three goals in the last four games.

10. (10) D.C. United 4-5-5

Charlie Davies continues to rack up his goal total with PKs, even those he dives to earn.

11. (11) Chivas USA 4-6-5

Four players share team-lead in goals with three: Moreno, Braun, Mondaini and LaBrocca.

12. (14) Sporting Kansas City 3-6-4

Undefeated in five straight (2-0-3), but losing Ryan Smith for the season was unexpected.

13. (13) Portland Timbers 5-6-3

Expansion side is still seeking its first road win, but Dallas won’t be easiest place to find it.

14. (12) Houston Dynamo 4-6-6

With history help this slumping team? 7-3-1 against this weekend’s opponent: D.C. United.

15. (18) Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2-6-8

Snapped a three-month, 15-game winless streak against Philadelphia. Will it be jump start?

16. (15) New England Revolution 3-7-6

Comes to CenturyLink Field on Sunday hoping to snap a six-game winless streak.

17. (16) Chicago Fire 2-4-9

Has played to a bland eight ties in last 10 games. Also has just one home win this season.

18. (17) Toronto FC 2-6-9

Goal differential (-11) is by far the league’s worst. Coach says the team needs more talent.
