Week 20 in MLS will have several interesting games. As it's been the trend over the past two months, we will analyze which players are riding a hot streak, and at the same time, we will expose players who have seen a decrease in their performance over the past matches.
6. Who's Hot: Jordan Hamilton (Toronto FC)
The 20-year-old Canadian striker has been doing everything in his power to make fans forget about Jozy Altidore's injury, and so far he's been successful. Hamilton has three goals and an assist in seven matches this season, and he's found the back of the net in three of his last five appearances. He's been one of the best players for Toronto over the past month.
5. Who's Not: Bill Hamid (DC United)
The DC United goalkeeper missed a big chunk of the season with an injury and even though he looked decent in his return, the last few matches haven't been positive for the 25-year-old. Hamid has allowed five goals over the past three matches, and DC United is currently riding a three-game winless streak because of this.
4. Who's Hot: Ola Kamara (Columbus Crew)
No striker in MLS is hotter than Ola Kamara right now. The 26-year-old Norwegian striker has scored nine times in 13 appearances, with all of his goals coming over the last eight appearances. Some fans wanted him to participate in the MLS All-Star Game due to his incredible form.
3. Who's Not: Didier Drogba (Montreal Impact)
The Ivorian striker is going through a dry spell. He's no longer the best player in Montreal and he hasn't scored since May 28. His problems are even more noticeable since he's expected to be one of the leaders on the team, but often looks uncomfortable out there. He should've been sent off in the last match after two criminal fouls over New York City FC's Andoni Iraola.
2. Who's Hot: Frank Lampard (New York City FC)
The former Chelsea and England star is fully recovered of the injuries that kept him out of action early in the season, and it's pretty noticeable he's been one of the best players in the league over the past month. Lampard has scored in five of his last six appearances, and he's quickly becoming one of the most important players for Patrick Vieira in NYCFC's impressive attack.
1. Who's Not: Jozy Altidore (Toronto FC)
The USMNT star has yet to return to action. Altidore suffered an injury before the start of the 2016 Copa America Centenario, and his replacement (Jordan Hamilton) has outplayed him to the point some fans don't want Altidore to return to the starting XI. His experience will make him return to the lineup as soon as he's fit, but there's no question he needs to improve drastically. He's yet to score for TFC in 2016.
