Week five of the MLS season feature some truly standout individual performances that made it extremely difficult to select a Best XI for the week.
Some picks were easy, like Landon Donovan, who netted a hat-trick AND an assist in the Galaxy’s 5-2 mauling of Chivas USA, but some others were tough to make.
This week’s MLS Best XI is heavy on goals, with five players who registered at least two goals.
