Power Rankings | Union Claim Top Spot

NYCvPHI- Alejandro Bedoya

Philadelphia Union is riding on a high as the international FIFA break kicks in. The Union are off to their best start in club history with 10 points through the first four matches and the league has taken notice as the No. 1 spot in's Power Rankings.

The Union have continued to rise since starting the season at the No. 7 spot following a 1-1 draw against a feisty Minnesota United squad on February 26th. With three straight wins, most notably a 2-0 win at defending MLS Cup Champions, NYCFC, the Union are now top of the rankings and the Supporters Shield race.

"One of the most encouraging things about the Union’s 10 points through the first four games is the fact Gazdag has scored three times in four starts," Sam Jones writes. "They look cohesive, mean and altogether set to stay near the top of the standings all year. They’re pretty much everything we expected them to be. That’s bad news for the rest of the East. Especially if new elements like Harriel and a goal-minded Gazdag make them into even more than that."
