Philadelphia Union defender Jack Elliott made the MLS Team of the Week this week and also finished on top of our reader rankings.
Elliott, a Rookie of the Year finalist in 2017, didn’t exactly stand on his head but didn’t need to in a game where the Union had a man advantage from the 25th minute on and a two-man advantage in the final four minutes.
He did make a key clearance inside the six and proved a reliable partner for Auston Trusty to have in his MLS debut while anchoring a back line that started off the season with a clean sheet.
The London, England native finished with 91.9 percent upvotes (114 up, 10 down), just edging out David Accam, who had just over 91 percent (122 up, 12 down).
