It appears the hive mind know where Chivas USA belongs on the SB Nation MLS Power Rankings: number 13. They've been placed there and remain there the last few weeks. On one hand, this demonstrates they are respected enough that the teams ranking below them are definitely a cut below. And this is even more startling considering Chivas are currently on a three-match losing streak. But they are firmly in the bottom half of the rankings, and it is no secret frustration is following this team around like a dark cloud at this point.
They are set to take on the San Jose Earthquakes Sunday, up North, so Chivas USA have a tough task this week to change minds. That said, I remember once upon a time when Chivas were lower in the rankings and beat the number one team in the rankings at that time in Real Salt Lake. The Earthquakes, yes, the Earthquakes, are currently sitting on top, so the Goats will need to work a similar magic if they want to rise up the standings as well as the Power Rankings.
