The main change (and only) from the LA Galaxy lineup that defeated Herediano on Wednesday is Leonardo sitting so that Colin Clark can return to the lineup. Since Clark is cup tied, he hasn't gotten action since the home opener against the Chicago Fire.
It looks like Chivas USA is sticking with their three man back line, despite losing their left back Walter Vilchez to injury. Juan Agudelo is the center forward with Oswaldo Minda behind him. That's a pairing to look out for.
Starting XI for Chivas USA: Kennedy (C); De Luna, Velazquez, Burling; Avila, Mejia, Minda, Soto; Correa, Agudelo, Morales
The Galaxy bench lacks Bryan Gaul, who is currently listed out with a left high ankle sprain. It also lacks Brian Perk, who's status is currently unknown. The rest is fairly boilerplate, although Tommy Meyer returning from injury is also notable.
LA Galaxy subs: Rowe, Leonardo, Meyer, Garcia, Stephens, Jimenez, McBean
And the Chivas USA subs:
Chivas bench: Melia; Borja, Bolaños, Casillas, Alvarez, Rivera, Bowen
Current weather in Carson in partly cloudy and 65 degrees fahrenheit. The referee is Ricardo Salazar.
