How does LAFC's fast start stack up with record-setting 2018 Red Bulls?

Seven matches into the 2019 MLS season, LAFC are the toast of the league.

The club have sprinted to six wins and a draw, scoring 21 goals while playing some devastating soccer behind Carlos Vela, Diego Rossi & Co. It's early, but how do they stack up alongside some of the league's best single-seasons in history?

In 2017, Toronto FC broke a record long held by the 1998 LA Galaxy for most points in a season, with 69. Last season, Atlanta United tied that mark while the New York Red Bulls broke it by earning a record-setting 71 points.

Note: The Red Bulls had Concacaf Champions League to deal with at the beginning of last season, regularly featuring heavily rotated lineups throughout the opening matches, unlike the other entries on this list.

That said: Where do LAFC rank among those great teams?
