MLS: Which Clubs Could Legitimately Compete in the Premier League?

It is a question that all MLS fans ask despite knowing they will never truly have an answer.

As fans of a young developing league, we are constantly trying to compare Major League Soccer's clubs with those of the best in Europe as we ponder how things would play out if the leagues ever combined.

With so many variables and differences between the two leagues that are unknown even to the most attentive follower of the MLS and EPL, we will never truly know for sure how MLS clubs would fare if placed up against the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal in the Premier League.

For pure fantastical fun, here are the three teams in MLS which I think could legitimately compete in a long Premier League season and hold their own against some of the best clubs in the world. Enjoy!

Note 1: Of course, there is always going to be different opinions on this unsolvable and subjective topic. Comment below on how you think certain MLS teams would fair if suddenly placed in the Premier League.

Note 2: I am not saying that these three teams would legitimately compete for an EPL crown, but at least be relevant in discussion of mid-table finishes and avoid relegation altogether.
