Landon Donovan missing from LA Galaxy starting XI

The LA Galaxy trot out a much changed lineup to face the New England Revolution with one omission larger than the others: Landon Donovan is not in the starting XI (he is available off the bench). Omar Gonzalez remains unavailable, while Kenney Walker gets another start ahead of Marcelo Sarvas who starts on the bench.

The LA Galaxy trot out a much changed lineup to face the New England Revolution with one omission larger than the others: Landon Donovan is not in the starting XI (he is available off the bench). Omar Gonzalez remains unavailable, while Kenney Walker gets another start ahead of Marcelo Sarvas who starts on the bench.

With another match this weekend on the road, it's probable that Bruce Arena is simply trying to save legs. Leonardo reappears on the back line, with Robbie Rogers not making the match day eighteen. DeLaGarza moves over to left back in his place.

Landon Donovan and Omar Gonzalez were named to the MLS All Star Game Fan XI today, making their absence tonight somewhat of an amusing coincidence.
