A New #1! The Seattle Sounders! Major League Soccer Power Rankings Week 17, 7/11/11

Seattle Makes Their First Appearance At #1!

The Seattle Sounders, on the strength of a win at Portland Sunday tops this week's Power Rankings. This is Seattle's first appearance at #1, knocking FC Dallas out of the top spot. Seattle has the best current form in Major League Soccer, and looks to be the team to beat! (At least this week!)

With only three matches this week ending in draws, there are some significant changes in this week's rankings overall.

Biggest moves up the rankings this week? The Houston Dynamo move up 4 spots, DC United and Chivas move up 3. 

Biggest drops? San Jose drops 6 spots, the Chicago Fire drops 4.

Who has the best current form? The Seattle Sounders, LA Galaxy, Columbus Crew and Sporting KC.

The worst? Portland, Vancouver and Toronto.
