LA Galaxy starting XI: Arena keeps same starting XI

The starting XI has been named by Bruce Arena and the LA Galaxy ahead of their match against the Colorado Rapids. No changes have been made.

The biggest question mark heading into Sunday was on the starting forward. Alan Gordon left the Knockout Round match after picking up a slight knock against Real Salt Lake. But he trained fine afterwards and retained his role up top.

After shining against RSL on Wednesday, Emmanuel Boateng starts on the left side of the pitch again with Landon Donovan flanking him on the other side. In between Boateng and Donovan is Giovani dos Santos and he’ll look to get into the game more.

Despite not having a great game, Robbie Rogers retains his place on the right side of the defense. Daniel Steres and Jelle Van Damme occupy the central of defense while Ashley Cole starts as the team’s left back.
