Key Players

ST Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez

I've already written at length at the challenge Chicharito will pose. The Mexican is an MVP-caliber goalscorer in MLS and will be a headache for Orlando all afternoon.

RW Douglas Costa

I expected Costa to show up and play like he's here just for a paycheck, and through three games, I've been pleasantly proven wrong. He's not as fast or dynamic as he was at his peak, but his technical quality and vision have been a weapon for the Galaxy

RB Julian Araujo

The Mexican had a howler against Seattle, but is among the best fullbacks in all of Major League Soccer. He is widely seen as the best right back in for the Mexican National Team and could be poised for a multi-million dollar move to Europe in the near future.

CM Mark Delgado

Delgado is a very unsexy player, but his acquisition from Toronto FC was one of the biggest moves of the offseason. He's an effective passer of the ball and an energetic presence in defensive midfield. His partnership with Rayan Raveloson gives LA strength in the center of the park.
