Eddie Johnson, Fredy Montero one of the top-scoring duos in MLS

Eddie Johnson scored another goal Saturday. Fredy Montero did, too. It was the fourth time this year they’ve both scored in a game and, as a result, they climbed up the charts when it comes to the top-scoring duo in MLS.

Here’s a makeshift chart that ranks Seattle’s strike tandem at No. 6:

27 — Chris Wondolowski (18) and Alan Gordon (9), San Jose

26 — Chris Wondolowski (18) and Steven Lenhart (8), San Jose

24 — Kenny Cooper (13) and Thierry Henry (11), New York

20 — Alvaro Saborio (14) and Fabian Espindola (6), Real Salt Lake

20 — Robbie Keane (11) and Landon Donovan (9), Los Angeles Galaxy

19 — Eddie Johnson (11) and Fredy Montero (8), Sounders FC

“We are not worried about who is the best striking pair in the league,” said Johnson. “Every striker, every team, every pair has their own style of play. Fredy and I have a style of play that is a lot different from other teams in the league. At the end of the day, it is about us. Fredy is competitive. I’m competitive. I think he’s trying to be the leading goal scorer. That’s one of my goals, too. If we’re both trying to be leading goal scorers, it’s going to get more goals from both of us, so it’s good for the team.”

What do you think? Would you take Johnson and Montero as the top-scoring duo from this point to the end of the regular season?
