MLS Power Rankings Week 11: Inter Miami continues to set the bar

Week 11 of the MLS season is in the books, and the latest round of action really shifted the standings around in a tight Western Conference.

In the East, Inter Miami continue to lead the way, but some in-form sides are giving them chase. Let’s take a look at where every team stands in the latest edition of our power rankings. 

1. Inter Miami

W7 D3 L2, 1st Eastern Conference

Inter Miami thumped the New York Red Bulls 6-2 - despite trailing 1-0 at halftime - over the weekend in an impressive display. That was a fourth win on the spin for the Eastern Conference leaders, netting 16 goals in that run. 

2. Real Salt Lake

W6 D3 L2, 1st Western Conference

In the West, Real Salt Lake stayed out in front with a third-straight win. A 1-0 victory over out-of-sorts Sporting KC is far from the biggest result of their campaign, but it extended a seven-game unbeaten run.

3. Minnesota United

W6 D2 L2, 2nd Western Conference

Minnesota United are just a point shy of top spot in the West following a three-game winning streak. They’ve impressively bounced back from defeats against Houston Dynamo and Philadelphia Union to jump into second, despite star playmaker Emanuel Reynoso playing just 31 minutes so far this season.

Having played a game fewer than Real Salt Lake, Minnesota United have the best points-per-game ratio in the West, but there’s very little between the teams. 

4. FC Cincinnati

W6 D3 L2, 2nd Eastern Conference

Cincinnati are giving chase to Inter Miami in the East, they are another side on a three-game winning streak in MLS, taking them to six victories for the campaign.

Cincinnati have picked up vital wins at Atlanta United and Orlando City, and they’ve really impressed away from home with four wins from six road games. 

5. Toronto FC

W6 D1 L4, 3rd Eastern Conference

Toronto FC are enjoying a great season under John Herdman, putting last season’s struggles behind them. With three consecutive wins, TFC have moved within five points of Inter Miami.

Given that Toronto were rooted to the bottom of the East alongside a Messi-less Miami last season, their turnaround is remarkable. 

6. Colorado Rapids

W5 D3 L3, 5th Western Conference

Outside of the leaders in the two conferences, no team has accumulated more points across the last six games than Colorado Rapids. They’ve won four from six, scoring 13 times in that stretch, and so far their reuslts have justified their offseason rebuild.

7. LA Galaxy

W5 D4 D2, 3rd Western Conference

LA Galaxy’s form has tailed off a little, but they remain towards the top of the Western Conference. The Galaxy have failed to win or score in their last couple of matches, but they’re not far removed from putting three goals past the Vancouver Whitecaps and four goals past the San Jose Earthquakes in recent victories. 

8. Vancouver Whitecaps

W5, D3 L2, 4th Western Conference

The Whitecaps look capable of a solid season this term, having lost only once in their last six matches. They’ll certainly rue their two home defeats at this early stage, especially as they’re just three points off top spot, but the Brian White-Ryan Gauld-Fabrice Picault trio in front of a rotation-heavy midfield has worked well. 

9. Austin FC

W4, D4, L3, 6th Western Conference

Austin are in flying form and that’s lifted them into the top six, which is a bit of a surprise given their lack of offseason movement. They’ve won four of their last six matches and with three clean sheets in a row, there’s clearly a strong foundation to build upon. 

10. New York City FC

W4 D2 L5, 7th Eastern Conference

New York City may have lost last time out, but they’ve picked up three wins from their previous four games to sit inside the playoff spots. City need to improve their away record, but their recent strong homestand suggests they can make the postseason. 

11. New York Red Bulls

W4 D5 L2, 4th Eastern Conference

This might be a low ranking for the side fourth in the East, but the Red Bulls are winless in four after this past weekend's heavy loss to Inter Miami. If this slide continues, they risk falling out of the playoff spots altogether given they’re currently just three points clear of ninth. 

12. Philadelphia Union

W3 D5 L2, 8th Eastern Conference

The Union are in poor form, which puts their playoff chances at risk. They’ve gone four games without a victory and they’ve suffered defeats at home to Real Salt Lake and the Seattle Sounders in that stretch. 

13. DC United

W3 D5 L3, 9th Eastern Conference

DC allowed a 2-0 lead to slip against Philadelphia at the weekend, leaving them ninth in the East with just one win in six. 

14. Los Angeles FC

W4 D3 L4, 7th Western Conference

Los Angeles FC are on the bubble in the West’s playoff race following a run of one victory in four games, and they have conceded at least two goals in each game in that span.

15. Columbus Crew

W3 D6 L1, 5th Eastern Conference

Columbus Crew have enjoyed an impressive campaign, suffering only one defeat across 10 matches this season. That consistency has put them on course for a playoff spot, but they simply don’t win enough games to feature any higher.

The Crew are winless in their last six and they need to start turning draws into victories in order to avoid slipping down the standings. 

16. St. Louis City
17. Charlotte FC
18. Houston Dynamo
19. Atlanta United
20. CF Montreal
21. Nashville SC
22. Seattle Sounders
23. Sporting Kansas City
24. Chicago Fire
25. San Jose Earthquakes
26. New England Revolution
27. Orlando City
28. FC Dallas
29. Portland Timbers
