Chicago Fire Preview – Can Fire end woeful run of form?

Ezra Hendrickson’s Chicago Fire have had a miserable 2022 season. The Illinois outfit prop up the overall MLS table right now, claiming a mere 11 points from 14 matches. So far, Fire have won two, drawn five and lost seven and have a -7 goal difference.

Chicago actually made a decent start to their season, kicking off with two wins and three draws from five. However, since those back-to-back wins over DC United and Kansas City in March, Fire are winless in ten, drawing three and losing seven. Hendrickson’s troops have taken just one point from a possible 21.
