POWER RANKINGS | Crew remains at top spot in MLSsoccer.com, ESPN polls

Last Saturday's 2-2 draw didn't feature another shutout or another three points for the Black & Gold, but as the editorial staff at MLSsoccer.com & ESPN.com say, it displayed other aspects of the Crew's make-up as the 2020 campaign continues.

See below for the respective sites' explanations for keeping Columbus atop the Power Rankings.

"Columbus hold steady in the top spot, despite a 2-2 draw against Chicago. It was a point that showed the mettle of this team: They came back from a 2-0 deficit on the road without two of their best players in Darlington Nagbe and Lucas Zelarayan."


ESPN.com: 1st

Previous ranking: 1st

"The league-leading Crew may be disappointed with a draw in Chicago, but they're still three points clear in the Supporters' Shield race and Gyasi Zardes' eighth goal of the season consolidates his place as the league's second-leading scorer."
