The expansion side recorded a surprise win over the Fire, who slumped to their fourth consecutive MLS defeat

Chicago Fire fell to yet another MLS defeat, while Orlando City also saw its form slump continue on Saturday.

A brace from Abu Danladi helped Minnesota United to a surprise 2-1 win against the Fire at Toyota Park.

It marked a fourth consecutive defeat for Chicago, which has fallen off the pace and is fourth in the Eastern Conference.

Danladi opened the scoring nine minutes before halftime, tapping in an Ethan Finlay pass.

The Ghanaian forward struck again before the break, getting on the end of a Jerome Thiesson cross from the right.

David Accam pulled a goal back for Veljko Paunovic's home side with a neat finish following a Bastian Schweinsteiger pass, but Minnesota held on.

Also struggling is Orlando City, which saw its winless run stretch to seven competitive games after a 2-1 loss at home to the Vancouver Whitecaps.

A Tommy Redding own goal and Brek Shea strike saw Vancouver, fourth in the Western Conference, to the win.

Elsewhere, a Luis Silva brace led Real Salt Lake past the Colorado Rapids 4-1 to win the Rocky Mountain Cup as both teams finished with 10 men.

A 10-man Philadelphia Union drew 2-2 at home to Atlanta United, D.C. United edged the New England Revolution 1-0 and Columbus Crew overcame Dallas 2-1.
