The LA Galaxy have lost just 1 of their last 18 meetings (inc playoffs) with Chivas USA in MLS play (according to Opta). It's been a lopsided series, but this time it's the Galaxy who haven't gotten a win yet in MLS play. Brian Perk had a solid week in training (according to Adam Serrano) which has led to him keeping his starting role after a good showing against Real Salt Lake.
That's not the only change to the lineup, with A.J DeLaGarza remaining out after his knock against RSL.
LA Galaxy Starting XI: Perk; Gargan, Gonzalez, Leonardo, Dunivant; Juninho, Sarvas, Husidic, Ishizaki; Keane, Donovan
LA Galaxy Subs: Penedo, Samuel, Friend, Meyer, Hoffman, Walker, Sorto
Chivas USA Starting XI: Kennedy; Avila, Bocanegra, Zavaleta, Jean-Baptiste; Rosales, Pelletieri, Alvarez, McNamara; Moore, Torres
Chivas USA Subs: Melia, Toia, Fondy, Tyrpak, Bautista, Barrera, Delgado
