On the road again. Doo doo doo doo doo my friend. After a huge home stand where the Galaxy managed to take out two of the top teams in the country without the aid of Robbie Keane, they once again hit the road where they have yet to win a game all season. Meanwhile, on the second best coast, the Red Bulls are undefeated. Yes, that's the same Red Bulls who lost Thierry Henry and whose fans were yelling "BE WORRIED" at their management in a preseason town hall.
Read our full preview here.
What to Watch:
- People thought Bradley Wright Phillips would slow down after the departure of Henry. People are stupid. The man is currently averaging 0.51 expected goals per 90 minutes and 0.25 expected assists per 90. And the scariest part about those numbers is that 27% of BWP's shots are unassisted. In other words, he's still plenty dangerous if you manage to cut out his service.
- Lloyd Sam has caught on fire for the Red Bulls this year, racking up 0.27 expected goals per 90 (more than Gyasi Zardes) with 0.29 expected assists per 90. He also happens to be listed as day-to-day. If he plays, shutting him down will be key for the Galaxy.
- Dax McCarty has accounted for 13.3% of New York's touches during his time on the field. Kljestan has accounted for 11.8% of New York's touches during his time on the field. That's 25% of New York's touches, right there. If LA can push them back and win the midfield duels, they can severely hurt New York's offense.
