MLS team of the week: Didier Drogba and Nigel Reo-Coker star for Montreal

Drogba Ivory Coast

The Chelsea legend and former Aston Villa and West Ham United midfielder join the likes of Frank Lampard and Kaka in our Week 30 line-up.

GK – Andre Blake (Philadelphia Union)

Philly’s Jamaican stopper produced 10 saves in Saturday’s clash with the New England Revolution to help earn his understrength side a 1-1 draw ahead of the US Open Cup final.

RB – R.J. Allen (New York City FC)

It’s not easy to contain Kekuta Manneh but Allen somehow managed it on Saturday night, helping NYCFC grab a surprise 2-1 win at the Vancouver Whitecaps with a strong defensive showing.

CB – Kendall Waston (Vancouver Whitecaps)

Despite Vancouver’s defeat, the towering Costa Rican still strengthened his case for the Defender of the Year award on the weekend, amassing a match-leading 10 interceptions in his battle with David Villa.

CB – Ethan White (Philadelphia Union)

Like his goalkeeper, White also put in a big performance at the Revs, recording 12 clearances and seven interceptions on the night.

LB – Amadou Dia (Sporting Kansas City)

Despite following Philadelphia’s lead in fielding a weakened team ahead of the cup final, SKC still managed to earn a 1-1 draw against the Seattle Sounders thanks in part to an impressive performance from Dia, who recorded seven tackles and set up Dom Dwyer’s 79th-minute equaliser.

CM – Nigel Reo-Coker (Montreal Impact)

The former West Ham United and Aston Villa midfielder supplied a great cross for Didier Drogba’s opener in Wednesday night’s 2-1 victory over the Chicago Fire, before producing another strong display in the weekend’s 2-0 win against D.C. United.

CM – Frank Lampard (New York City FC)

The Chelsea legend scored his second MLS goal at Vancouver, while also winning a last-gasp spot-kick for captain Villa to dispatch for the win.

AM – Kaka (Orlando City SC)

Orlando’s superstar skipper helped keep their faint post-season hopes alive with three assists in their 5-2 win at the New York Red Bulls.

ST – Fanendo Adi (Portland Timbers)

The Nigerian striker scored either side of half-time as the Timbers beat the Columbus Crew 2-1 at MAPFRE Stadium to end a run of four games without a win.

ST – Cyle Larin (Orlando City SC)

The 20-year-old Canadian made MLS history with his hat-trick in Friday’s victory at  the Red Bulls, breaking Damani Ralph’s single-season rooking scoring record. He still has three more games to add to his 14 goals, too.

ST – Didier Drogba (Montreal Impact)

The former Chelsea striker continued his hot start to life in MLS in Week 30, as his headed finish against Chicago and first-half brace against D.C. made it seven goals in his first six games for Montreal.
