Steven Gerrard: Putting in a performance worthy of the captain's armband, Gerrard was all over the park, and his distribution was excellent. Now 2nd in MLS with 11 assists.
Ashley Cole: Smooth and composed on the ball with a team high 3 tackles. The best left back in the league.
Emmanuel Boateng: When the Ghanian gets into open space, watch out.
Daniel Steres: Had a productive but quiet outing until his 62nd minute header saved LA's bacon.
Jelle Van Damme: Unlucky to hit the crossbar in the 26th minute off a glancing header. A bit sloppy on the ball.
AJ DeLaGarza: Almost scored a dream goal on Tim Howard, but after doing all the hard work was unable to finish the chance.
Brian Rowe: Mr. Reliable as usual. Had no chance on Shkelzen Gashi's golazo.
Sebastian Lletget: Hold and cold. Started off poor and touch was off, but had a brief flurry in the first half were he created chances.
Nigel de Jong: Wasn't great, wasn't terrible.
Giovani dos Santos: Required Howard to be on the top of his game, but the Mexican Designated Player needs to find the game more consistently and finish his opportunities.
Gyasi Zardes: Looked a bit rusty, in part due to wearing a pectoral brace, but still put in a hard shift.
Mike Magee: Not much impact in a 15-minute cameo.
Alan Gordon and Dan Kennedy: N/A
