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

Landon Donovan has a chance at 135, and Robbie Keane should have fun against this shaky Chivas USA back line.
