Chivas USA: After back-to-back embarrassing losses against Seattle Sounders FC and the Colorado Rapids, Chivas USA were left with more questions than answers as the team has been unable to develop chemistry. In spite of the losses, the football intelligence of the squad has risen substantially with the presence of Paulo Nagamura and Rodolfo Espinoza in the midfield. Earlier in the season, when the team fell into a deficit, Sacha Kljestan would lead the side in trying to conjure unrealistic one-on-one situations. With Espinoza and Nagamura in charge, the team has played in control, even in the direst circumstances.
