MLS Week 4 MVP Candidates
John Rieger - USA TODAY Sports

What a difference one week makes. Most of the players who I thought were MVP worthy last week are no longer on the list. These are the players who impressed me this week, and I think they will continue to impress throughout the season.

Diego Valeri is really shinning for the Portland Timbers this season. He is a DP who takes chances and is never scared of trying for a goal. He will continue being valuable to Portland down the line.

4. Graham Zusi

Graham Zusi is one of the best players in the league, and he's been a great midfielder for Sporting Kansas City this season. He has scored one goal for his club and has two assists. If he keeps this up, maybe he'll lead Sporting to another cup as he becomes league MVP.

3. Federico Higuain

Federico Higuain may be the reason that Columbus Crew are doing as well as they are. He has three goals and two assists in three matches. If he keeps it up, I can see him as a MVP finalist without a doubt.

Nick Rimando is the goalkeeper you want guarding your net. Not only does he make some incredible saves, but he's currently the leader in saves in the entire league. He's the only player I've put in the top five for two weeks in a row, and I think he may just stay put.

Erick Torres is an incredible forward, and he is one of the reasons why Chivas USA is doing well this season. He's scored four goals in four games, which is an incredible feat, and I think he'll only keep going. He's a player who defenders need to keep an eye on, and I'd bet he'll stay that way.
