MLS Power Rankings: Week 9 – DC surge to top as Vancouver fall away

Another week of MLS action is behind us but the next is right around the corner as Week 10 will start on Tuesday night.

But before that happens, it’s time to look at the MLSGB Power Rankings after Week 9’s results. There were 24 goals in the ten games, with New York Red Bulls and Colorado Rapids both enjoying a double gameweek after their clash at Red Bull Arena on Wednesday night.

At the top end of the league, Vancouver Whitecaps failed to win for the fourth time in their last five games as their impressive start looks to have faded. They find themselves outside the top three in our latest rankings after leading the pack for so long.

DC United move up to top spot after another win extended their unbeaten run to six. They have the best points-per-game ratio in MLS after nine weeks and surely deserve to be at the top of the pile.

Behind them are the New England Revolution, who climb once again to take up second spot after a third straight win at home to the Red Bulls, who lost for the first time this season.

There are no remaining unbeaten sides as the competitive nature of MLS proves to be too high for anyone to avoid defeat for that long.

New York City FC and Philadelphia Union both lost for the third straight game and find themselves in the bottom three and in big trouble.

Montreal Impact are still bottom, but they haven’t played for three weeks and should start climbing the Power Rankings if they can find some form.

Here’s how the MLSGB Power Rankings look after Week 8:
