MLS Power Poll: Week 27 and a few changes are a foot

Here are the results of Doug Roberson’s weekly one-man MLS Power Poll:

Here are the results, which only take into account the results and not potential: 

1. LAFC (19-4-6) 

Last week: 1. 

Draw with Orlando 2-2. 

No Carlos Vela and this team again looked very average. I realize very average is redundant. It’s like saying most excellent.

-

2. Philadelphia (15-8-6) 

Last week: 2. 

-

3. NYCFC (15-5-8) 

Last week: 3. 

Defeated New England 2-1. 

Now in control in the East, thanks to some of the poorest refereeing you have seen this season.

Last week: 4. 

-

5. Minnesota (13-9-6)
