TORONTO, Canada—MLSSoccer.com revealed their latest Weekly Power Rankings and the Reds are once again among the league’s elite.

Following Sunday’s emphatic win over the first-place Columbus Crew SC, Toronto FC have moved up two spots in the Week 13 edition of the rankings to No. 3, behind only the Philadelphia Union and Seattle Sounders. Columbus, meanwhile, who are still first-place overall in the MLS Standings, dropped to No. 4.

Seattle, the defending MLS Cup Champions, have wins in three of their last four and own a league-high +17 goal differential. Philadelphia are tied with the Reds for second in the Eastern Conference and are 4-0-1 in their last five matches. They’ve lost only once since play resumed in August following the MLS is Back Tournament.

Coincidentally, the Union and TFC will square off next on Saturday in another marquee fixture. The Reds are 3-0-1 in their last four matches and are hoping to follow up Sunday’s statement win with another at their ‘home away from home’: Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut.

For what it’s worth, the lowest that the Reds have been ranked is No. 6, following their Week 1 late slip-up to the San Jose Earthquakes—a 2-2 draw. The highest? No. 1.

If you were making these rankings, where would you put TFC? Let us know in the comments.
