In this week's MLS power rankings, ESPN.com's Jeff Carlisle has the San Jose Earthquakes on top, changing spots with D.C. United from the week before.
After their wild 5-3 win at Portland over the weekend, the Galaxy moved up a spot to No. 10.
Chivas USA, meanwhile, dropped a spot to No. 13 as the Goats prepare to host the Galaxy on Saturday in the latest edition of the SuperClasico.
Both teams also play mid-week games Wednesday, Chivas hosting Portland and the Galaxy playing at Vancouver.
