It was bound to happen eventually but Landon Donovan finally didn’t make the SBI MLS Best XI. The Galaxy forward cooled off last weekend, though teammate David Beckham picked up the slack, earning player of the week honors in the process.
Also bound to happen eventually was Brad Guzan’s return to the status as a top goalkeeper. He showed his old all-star form in Chivas USA’s scoreless draw against Houston.
Week Six didn’t offer the offensive fireworks of past weeks, with just 12 goals scored in six matches, but there was plenty of midfield mastery to appreciate. From Christian Gomez’s stellar showing against former club D.C. United, to John Thorrington coming through for Chicago again as he emerges as an early candidate for Most Improved Player.
Here is the SBI MLS Best XI for Week 6.
