LA Galaxy vs. San Jose Earthquakes: Starting lineups and match thread

football formations

The two biggest story-lines tonight will be the LA Galaxy's ability to clinch a playoff spot as well as move into first place, as well as Landon Donovan's quest to get goal no. 135 and break the MLS all time scoring record.

Three rookies in starting lineup tonight with Kofi Opare getting the start next to Omar Gonzalez over Leonardo. Todd Dunivant is out with a right knee sprain, so Greg Cochrane starts in his place. Of course, homegrown Gyasi Zardes has cemented his spot as the starting left midfielder.

Donovan and Gonzalez both return from their respective injuries, while Jaime Penedo returns from international duty. Michael Stephens performed well enough in Bruce Arena's eyes to hold onto his starting position.

LA Galaxy Subs: Rowe, Leonardo, Courtois, Mastroeni, DeLaGarza, Villarreal, Rogers

San Jose Earthquakes: Starting XI: Busch, Beita, Goodson, Bernardez, Stewart, Cato, Cronin, Baca, Salinas, Lenhart, Wondo.

Kickoff: 6 pm PT

TV: ESPN
