Atlanta United has gotten wins in their last five games in all competitions including a huge road win against Portland on Sunday night. 

The defending MLS Champs have had quite an up-and-down season, but things seem to be trending upwards again as the team is hoping to peak as they head into the playoffs.

Atlanta United Midfielder Jeff Larentowicz joined John Fricke and Hugh Douglas and discussed the teams recent run of results.

"From where we started to where we are now we feel pretty good. It's also just the beginning, we've gotten into a good spot but this last stretch of the season is the most important."

Jeff also spoke about the other teams around the league truly taking notice of the run Atlanta United is on.

"I think we're getting there, teams around the league are feeling we're the team we were last year and at the beginning of the year it wasn't that way. If we focus teams will fear us."

Jeff also is asked about the goal-scoring run that Josef Martinez has been on.

"It's ridiculous. The amount of records I've seen him set and break in 2 seasons is unbelievable. With the ball at his feet he's good, he might be better with the ball in the air. He's hungry and it's gotta be difficult to defend for other teams."
