With the current status of MLS and soccer in North America looking better than ever and much money being put into it, we are starting to see more and more quality foreign talent come to play here.

Over the years, Major League Soccer has been fortunate to have several true superstars, including David Beckham and Thierry Henry.

As the popularity of Major League Soccer increases, the portal sportwetten-vergleich.at has witnessed a rise in traffic from people looking for options to bet on MLS games. In the interest of fans curious about individual players, here is a list of the top performers this season.

Carles Gil

As New England won the 2021 Supporters’ Shield in record-breaking style, Gil notched up 18 assists. His originality and flare enabled the Revs to score 73 points, putting them first in the Eastern Conference by 19 points. Gil deserves to be called the best player in the MLS until someone exceeds him.

Carlos Vela

Carlos Vela missed most of the 2020 campaign with an injury. But he reminded everyone of his undeniable talent with a hat-trick on the opening weekend of the 2022 season. Vela, however, did not need to remind anyone of his capabilities in Major League Soccer. Those who follow the league are well aware of what he can do.

In 103 games for LAFC, the 33-year-old has tallied 70 goals and 30 assists. He is now the most prolific MLS Golden Boot winner of all time after adding a whopping 34 goals in 31 appearances during the 2019 season.

Hany Mukhtar

Hany Mukhtar led all Major League Soccer players in goal involvements during the previous campaign. The German magician of Nashville helped the Boys in Gold snag third place in the Eastern Conference with 16 goals and 12 assists.

Hat tricks are only achieved by the best players in Major League Soccer. Surprisingly, Mukhtar currently owns the MLS record for the quickest hat-trick!

Josef Martinez

After leading the Five Stripes to MLS Cup victory in 2018, the 28-year-old claimed both the MVP and Golden Boot awards. He scored four goals in five post season games after scoring 31 goals in 34 games during the regular season.


In the end, predicting which players will have the best careers in five years is nearly impossible. That being said, we are still confident that the list above represents a wise selection of players with the potential to continue excelling in MLS.
