FC Dallas are the current holders of the best record in the league. With another dominant win against a Houston Dynamo team that many thought would perform much better, FCD are on their way to MLS Cup glory. What is going in MLS 2014? The amount of upsets, surprises, penalty kicks and red cards has been more than overwhelming, but oh so awesome.
Here are five storylines that you should be following in MLS Week 6 action.
The master of game-winning goals and dazzling attacking play may finally see the all-time MLS goal-scoring record be his this week. His chances are certainly good, especially after a terrific performance last week for his club. Donovan is a true goal-master who all young forwards should look up to.
Yes, the most deadly striker in MLS is still out with an injury, but no, that does not mean his club will go down in flames. Michael Bradley did a fantastic job last week and will look to lead the team to victory this week, even if he is listed as questionable for the match. Toronto has numerous attacking options and should not be counted out just because one player is on the bench.
Last time these two clubs met, the Houston Dynamo put four goals in the Revolution net. Will Bruin is looking for more goals after a slow past few games. While Diego Fagundez still is looking for his first goal of 2014. This match could certainly get physical and one-sided rather quickly if both clubs don't play with class and the desire to win.
The Seattle Sounders certainly produced one of the games of the season last week with their come-from-behind win. Even with Clint Dempsey playing so well, the Sounders will have their hands full all game with the dynamic attack of FC Dallas. The reds are atop the MLS Power Rankings and have the best record in the league. FCD is on track for another victory against a shaky Sounders defense.
After the soccer world was shocked by a surprise trade between the Montreal Impact and Philadelphia Union last week, fans will finally get the chance to see how Jack McInerney performs at his new club. The Impact will look to pair Marco Di Vaio and McInerney up-top for one dangerously looking attack. This move could actually save J-Mac's career and potentially get him a call-up to the U.S. National Team if he plays his cards right.
