Javier Hernandez continues to go through a bad streak in the MLS. The Mexican did not change his present despite starting on the bench and entering as a shock in the second half. The LA Galaxy was thrashed by the Houston Dynamo (0-3) at home and Chicharito is in crisis.
Los Angeles coach Greg Vanney left Chicharito on the bench for this match. Instead he started Dejan Joveljicwho had not started in any MLS game this season and had just scored a goal in 10 games before Sunday’s game.
Houston went ahead at 11′ with a goal from Carlos Ferreira. So the game went to rest. The Galaxy had the ball but did not create any danger or harm their rival. The dynamic continued in the second half, and at 58′ it was 0-2 by Tyler Pasher.
The Angelenos immediately moved their pieces. There was a quadruple change in which Douglas Costa and Chicharito entered, regular starters. But four minutes later they received a bucket of cold water with a goal from Thorleif Ulfarsson.
Having almost 80% of the possession did not help at all. The LA Galaxy went three games without a win and Chicharito seven consecutive MLS games in white. Los Angeles in crisis.
