With their fourth-straight win in MLS action, Atlanta United continues to rise in the various power rankings around the internet. Tito Villalba’s 86th-minute golazo gave the Five Stripes three crucial points on the road at Orlando City to move them to fourth in the Eastern Conference, and ESPNFC is taking notice of the hot streak.

After the two-week break for the Gold Cup, Atlanta United’s 1-0 win over Orlando City had ESPNFC’s Jason Davis moving them to No. 5 in MLS, up one spot from the previous rankings. United trail Chicago, NYCFC, Toronto and FC Dallas atop the league in those rankings heading into this Saturday’s home rematch against Orlando City.

On Tuesday, Doug Roberson of the AJC released his weekly Power Poll, with United also checking in at No. 5. FC Dallas takes the No. 1 spot in that one.
