[MLS GOLEADORES] Prodigal son Eddie Johnson, who returned to MLS this season after four unsuccessful seasons abroad, scored twice in Seattle's 2-1 win over Chivas USA to put him fourth in the MLS leading scorers' race while setting a club record. For the latest on the Golden Boot race ...

* Both of Johnson's goals came off headers. Of his 13 goals this season, nine have been headers.

* Johnson's 13 goals set a club record for the Seattle Sounders, breaking the 12-goal mark Fredy Montero set in 2011 and in the Sounders' inaugural 2009 season.

* The 28-year-old Johnson's most productive season came in 2007 when he scored 15 times for Kansas City. He joined Fulham the following season on a $5 million transfer but didn't rediscover his scoring touch with the EPL club nor while on loan stints with Cardiff City, Preston or Greece's Aris.

* Johnson signed with FC Dallas in 2001 at age 17. His break-out year came in 2004, when he scored 12 goals for FC Dallas -- tied for the league lead with San Jose's Brian Ching.

* MLS Leading Scorers
