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

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.
