The LA Galaxy have announced their Starting XI for Sunday's match against Chivas USA. In the previous meeting this season on April 6, the Galaxy defeated the Goats, 3-0. The Galaxy got goals from Robbie Keane, Stefan Ishizaki and Baggio Husidic. Keane is away on international duty with the Republic of Ireland. The Galaxy will also be without centerback Omar Gonzalez who is on national team duty with the United States.

Samuel will get the start at forward in Keane's place. Gyasi Zardes will also be in the forward slot as opposed to his usual role this season in the midfield. Robbie Rogers will join the back line tonight in his first MLS start of 2014 and A.J. DeLaGarza will be in the center back role to compensate for Omar Gonzalez not being available.


Chivas USA Starting XI: Dan Kennedy; Eric Avila, Donny Toia, Carlos Bocanegra, Bobby Burling, Tony Lochhead, Mauro Rosales, Agustin Pelletieri, Martin Rivero, Leandro Barrera; Erick Torres

The match kicks off at 5:00 p.m. Pacific at the StubHub Center and is televised on Time Warner Cable Sports and Univision Deportes.
