The defeat to Sporting Kansas City showed much of the existence of the team from LA. They still need to improve a lot if they want to finish at the top in the Western region. LA Galaxy’s performance in the last 5 matches in all arenas is just fine. With 3 wins and 2 losses, this is certainly not an impressive achievement.

They will need to improve their defensive ability if they want to compete for the top spot.
