Major League Soccer is one of the hardest leagues in the world to predict, thanks to salary caps and the various other spending mechanisms that ensure parity throughout the division.

Last season, LAFC were the double-winners, taking home the Supporters’ Shield during the regular season before winning the Playoffs to become MLS Cup champions. The Black and Gold look like strong contenders this time around, and have also gone all the way to the Concacaf Champions League final.

However, they have stiff competition from both conferences this year. Newcomers St. Louis City SC are the shock leaders in the West, followed closely by LAFC and then CCL holders Seattle Sounders, who are bouncing back after missing out on the Playoffs for the first time in their history in 2022.

In the East, FC Cincinnati currently set the pace with 43 points from 19 games — seven more than their nearest rivals, New England Revolution and enough to place them comfortably atop the Supporters’ Shield standings at present.

Lionel Messi’s new side Inter Miami currently sit bottom of the Eastern Conference, having won just 15 points from their opening 18 games, 11 points behind DC United, who hold the final playoff spot.

10 players you (probably) didn’t realise played in MLS now

Given the stir their moves caused, everyone is probably well aware of the fact that Italy internationals Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Bernardeschi are strutting their stuff in MLS. The same can be said of former Man Utd and Real Madrid super sub Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez. However, there are plenty of other high-profile players setting the league alight right now:

Carlos Vela (LAFC)

Vela’s time in Europe was a frustrating one, showing bags of talent at Arsenal but never quite making it, before becoming a more-than-solid La Liga forward with Real Sociedad. He’s now one of the top players in Major League Soccer with LAFC, winning MLS Cup and Supporters’ Shield titles, as well as breaking the league’s goalscoring record and winning the MVP award back in 2019. Injuries have continued to hold him back in MLS, but he’s effective just about every time he hits the field.

Carles Gil (New England Revolution)

Almost a decade ago, a fresh-faced Carles Gil lit up Villa Park with his flicks and tricks after joining from La Liga giants Valencia. In the end, the former Spain U21 international never quite made it in Europe, but has gone on to become one of the most exciting playmakers in MLS with the New England Revolution, where he’s played well over 100 games, won the Supporters’ Shield, and numerous individual accolades, including the 2021 MVP award.

Brad Guzan (Atlanta United)

Sticking with a former Aston Villa man, many will remember Brad Guzan’s spell in the Premier League. What you may not know is the USA international has formed the bedrock of an Atlanta United side that entered the league in 2017 and by the end of 2019, had MLS Cup, US Open Cup and Campeones Cup titles in the bag. Despite being 38 years old and suffering a couple of terrible ligament injuries, Guzan has shown incredible longevity and remains No.1 for the Five Stripes.

Douglas Costa (LA Galaxy)

Douglas Costa turned plenty of heads when he joined LA Galaxy on loan ahead of the 2022 season but, thus far, his spell with the five-time MLS Cup champions has proven underwhelming. The Brazilian has utterly failed to hit the heights of other former stars like David Beckham and Robbie Keane before him, with off-field issues garnering more attention at present.

Giorgio Chiellini (LAFC)

Remember when Gareth Bale made an incredible move to MLS last year and scored the latest-ever MLS Cup goal to deliver the title for LAFC? Well, in the very same window, veteran Italian Giorgio Chiellini made the same move. The centre-back has been used in rotation at BMO Stadium, understandably due to his age. However, he’s been reliable when required and his experience has proven invaluable.

Cucho Hernandez (Columbus Crew)

Cucho Hernandez showed plenty of promise during his debut Premier League season in 2021/22, scoring five goals in 25 games despite being relegated with Watford. It was with great surprise, then, that the Colombia international chose the Columbus Crew as his next destination. It’s paid off, though, with Hernandez hitting 12 goals and seven primary assists in 26 MLS appearances so far. At just 24, there’s still plenty of time for Cucho to return to Europe.

Christian Benteke (DC United)

After a promising start to life in England with Aston Villa, Christian Benteke ended up, perhaps harshly, becoming a figure of ridicule during his time with Liverpool and Crystal Palace. Nowadays, he can be found playing under Wayne Rooney at DC United — not the manager/striker combination you’d expect.

Xherdan Shaqiri (Chicago Fire)

Xherdan Shaqiri has seen it all in Europe, from winning trophies with Bayern Munich and Liverpool, to the more modest but no less intense surroundings of Stoke City — as well as scoring goals at major tournaments for Switzerland. But did you know Shaqiri is now the highest-paid player in MLS, banking a whopping $8.2m per year with the Chicago Fire, who he is trying to help return to the MLS Cup Playoffs?

Thiago Almada (Atlanta United)

Many of you will likely know Thiago Almada, either from signing him on FIFA and Football Manager, or seeing his name as part of Argentina’s World Cup-winning squad. Anyone taking their eye off the ball for a moment, however, might have missed the fact he moved from Velez to Atlanta United. The wonderkid won’t be there long, with some top clubs in Europe eyeing him up as he continues to score wondergoals and carve open defences.

Riqui Puig (LA Galaxy)

There was a time when Riqui Puig was touted as the next great thing in Barcelona’s midfield; a player to rival the achievements of the likes of Andres Iniesta and Xavi. The Spaniard never quite fulfilled that potential and was surpassed by Gavi and Pedri. However, he remains an incredible technical talent and is more than showing it with the LA Galaxy, despite playing on one of the worst teams in MLS this year. Puig has technical ability in buckets and reads the game as only La Masia graduates can. His form in MLS is sure to attract a European giant to bring him back soon.

Other notable names: Johnny Russell (Sporting KC), Hector Herrera (Houston Dynamo), Matt Miazga (FC Cincinnati), Jozy Altidore (New England Revolution), Ryan Gauld (Vancouver Whitecaps), Mateusz Klich (DC United), Victor Wanyama (CF Montreal), Roman Burki (St. Louis CITY SC), Lewis Morgan (New York Red Bulls), Ravel Morrison (DC United), DeAndre Yedlin (Inter Miami), Ashley Westwood (Charlotte FC), Jack Price (Colorado Rapids), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Kieran Gibbs (Inter Miami).
