The lineups have been released for LA Galaxy vs. FC Dallas, and there's a surprise in the Starting XI. Goalkeeper Josh Saunders is absent, having been given leave to deal with personal matters. That means Bill Gaudette starts in goal, with Brian Perk backing him up. And after Saunders had such a feel good week too.

Otherwise it should be quite recognizable. Marcelo Sarvas isn't in the 18, but otherwise it's fairly typical. Kevin Hartman sits for FC Dallas, with Chris Seitz in at goal.

It's another big night for the Galaxy in the early going, as they attempt to overcome the hole they dug for themselves in the point race. Dallas is within reach in the table, which Chivas USA and Colorado also at nine points are currently playing to a stalemate in Colorado.

LA Galaxy (3-3-0, 9 pts) vs. FC Dallas (3-3-2, 11 pts)
