With one month left in the MLS season, it's pretty clear who the front-runner is for the Landon Donovan MVP award.
Last Saturday, Sebastian Giovinco became the first player in MLS history to record a 20-goal, 15-assist season and the Italian shows no signs of slowing down. He will be trying to get Toronto FC a home game in the Audi 2015 MLS Cup Playoffs over the next month.
He's followed by Golden Boot leader Kei Kamara, who had another stellar month scoring four goals.
Here's how the rankings are determined: 10 of MLSsoccer.com's editors were polled for their top five MVP candidates, as of this month. Their votes were aggregated, resulting in the list below.
Five points were given to a player who received a first-place vote, four to a second-place vote, three to a third-place vote, two for a fourth-place vote and one point was given if a player received a fifth-place vote.
This is an unofficial list. It does NOT reflect actual MVP voting.
