MLS
Ranking: 1 (Last week: 1, no change)

"Defending Supporters’ Shield champions FCD haven’t really done much to give anyone a reason to doubt they’re still the best team in MLS. But that title is being threatened by Sporting KC and the Timbers — their next two opponents — in this early part of the year."

ESPN FC
Ranking: 1 (Last week: 1, no change)

"Nevertheless, the Texas club holds on to the top spot thanks in large part to the slew of losses for other contenders to the throne."

Ranking: 1 (Last week: 1, no change)

"Jesse Gonzalez made four saves and survived a couple of shaky moments."

This week, FC Dallas returns home to take on Sporting Kansas City at Toyota Stadium. And how does their opponent rank? Sporting KC is on the rise and remains the only undefeated team in MLS besides FC Dallas.
