The good news for the Sounders? Well, they’re still in first place.
That’s about the only positive thing left to say after a lopsided 5-0 defeat on the road Sunday against the New England Revolution. The five-goal loss was the team’s worst in an MLS game, and it matched the worst when including the CONCACAF Champions League, having lost to Mexico’s Santos Laguna by a 6-1 score in 2012.
The four goals allowed before halftime also tied a franchise worst for a half.
Here is a chart of the worst defeats suffered by Sounders FC:
