MLS league leaders Toronto FC host DC United on Sunday, with the Canadians looking to extend their lead at the top of the table.

Defender Sean Franklin is out with a hamstring injury, and midfielder Nick DeLeon also misses out through a abdominal strain.
Fellow midfielder Patrick Mullins also misses out through as he is set to undergo knee surgery, however defender Bobby Boswell could be set for a return from a hamstring problem, if he can pass a late fitness test.
Toronto will be without key defender Nick Hagglund, who remains sidelined with a serious knee injury.
The hosts are also without forward Tosaint Ricketts, who is still out of first team action with a hamstring strain.
Toronto FC v DC United Previews and Predictions
Toronto have been in excellent form since the start of the 2017/18 MLS season, securing their place at the top of the pile with some very consistent performances.
With just two defeats so far, they look in great shape to make a real attempt at securing the MLS title.
The most recent loss came in their last game, going down 3-0 to New England, but that result is unlikely to prevent them from sealing three points against a DC side that has won just once in their last six MLS games.
Greg Vanney’s side should clinch a comfortable win on home territory, with a win priced at 1/2. The hosts have also been excellent in front of goal in recent matches, and an over 2.5 and a Toronto win bet is priced at 6/5.
Toronto to win 2-0 at 7/1
Toronto have made a fine start to the season, and they show little sign of slowing down against a limited DC United side that have struggled to maintain any sort of consistency.
Sebastian Giovinco to score anytime at 11/18
The former Juventus striker has been the main man for Vanney’s side this season, with six goals in 10 MLS games. Alongside Jozy Altidore, formerly of Sunderland and Hull City, in attack, the Italian has been a real threat to MLS defences.
