As you can see, Philadelphia Union is in the lead in the Eastern Conference, while LAFC does the same in the Western Conference, but they have chasers who are looking to snatch the leadership of the tournament at all costs.

Which teams can take control of the MLS standings?

In the Eastern Conference, the New York Red Bulls aspire to take the lead from the Union, and yesterday they took another step towards this goal by beating the New England Revolution with a 0-1 score, with a goal by Matt Polster

However, this defeat cost the club led by Gerhard Struber as Frankie Amaya was sent off and the coach will have to make changes to his roster for next week's MLS match against CF Montréal.

On the other hand, in the Western Conference, Los Angeles Football Club is closely followed by Real Salt Lake, which yesterday visited the Colorado Rapids at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, where it had to settle for a split point. 

With a 1-1 draw, and goals from Lalas Abubakar and Pablo Enrique Ruíz, the Claret and Cobalt managed to reach 11 points and are just 2 points away from tying the club where Carlos Vela plays. 

However, the Claret and Cobalt will have to be fast and effective if they want to match the Los Angeles team that yesterday defeated Orlando City SC 2-4, so RSL will have to wait for LAFC to slip up next week. 

And of course, they must win their match against Toronto FC

Which are the worst teams in MLS?

So far, Inter Miami CF in the Eastern Conference and San Jose Earthquakes in the Western Conference are the two worst clubs in the league.

The former has only 1 point in the 5 weeks of the tournament and yesterday, they were thrashed by the Houston Dynamo, who annihilated them with a score of 1-3.

In the match played at Lockhart Stadium, Gonzalo Higuaín scored a penalty, but could do little for his club, Darwin Quintero scored 1 goal, and Fafá Picault scored a brace.

On the other hand, the Quakes managed an important draw against Austin FC yesterday, in a 2-2 draw, with goals from Jeremy Ebobisse and Cade Cowell.

Therefore, if the team led by Matías Almeyda continues to make an effort in its performance in Week 6, it could move out of the bottom of the general table of the Western Conference.
