Gameweek 371 sees MLS sides return to league action after a midweek third round of the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup over Wednesday and Thursday.
It is rivalry week in MLS, which means the weekend kicks off with St Louis travelling to face struggling Chicago, while Portland and Vancouver meet, Minnesota travel to Kansas City, Austin host Dallas, the two New York teams go head-to-head, Toronto make the trip to Montreal and Atlanta hope to get one over on Charlotte.
101 Great Goals has looked at the data to see which players you should consider picking for the week ahead in your Sorare MLS team, analysing the most in-form players judging by their last five average scores and looked at who each player is to come up against in the next gameweek to suggest who you should pick in your side.
Steve Clark is one of the form goalkeepers in MLS right now. Having had a shaky start to the season with a score of 13 against New England in Gameweek 351, he has picked up impressively and now boasts a last five (L5) average of 67. Scores of 71, 58, 82 and 89 in his last four outings mark him out as a good pick, with Houston Dynamos holding one of the strongest defensive records across the two divisions.
The Dynamos have a tough match up next - they face Western Conference leaders Seattle Sounders in GW 371 - but that should mean Clark stays busy and he will hope to maintain a record that has seen them concede just one goal in their last four.
Keegan Rosenberry would always count as a solid pick owing to his consistent scores across the last season or so. With an L40 of 50, it is clear that the Colorado Rapids defender is a consistent scorer and will always return a fair haul for you. However we have seen lately that his returns have increased significantly, with scores of 73, 66, 58, 64 and 76 giving him an L5 of 67 and making him one of the most valuable defenders around at the moment.
As a defender who has played in midfield, he poses an all-round game and a home game against Philadelphia shouldn’t put you off selecting him for your side.
The Montreal winger saw a sharp spike in value in recent weeks after back-to-back scores of 100 against Sporting KC and New York Red Bulls, which he followed up with a 45 this weekend, giving him an L5 of 65. The Canadian is already enjoying his best season in terms of goal contributions with two goals and two assists, and if he keeps developing then he could be a real gem to keep an eye on. An L15 of 51 and L40 of 44 means he may not be on the radar of most managers at the moment, although there must be some caution against those two performances being the exception rather than the norm.
If he performs well against Toronto, then he could be well worth selection, and remember he counts as an under-23 until July 1 so could be worth a handy bonus.
San Jose Earthquakes striker Jeremy Ebobisse will be a familiar name to most, having hit 17 goals in MLS last season. He has started off okay this season with five to date, but has been showing signs of coming into his best form of late with three goals in his last four. Among those performances, he has scored 85, 47, 70 and 66 - with the latter coming against LA Galaxy and proving that while he doesn’t always score, he can still produce good results in his all-round play. An overall L5 of 61 marks him out as a player in form, and a trip to LA after the reverse tie at the weekend will fill him with confidence that he can produce again.
