“They were the better team all night, they outplayed us the entire match,” Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said. “Personally every player can look at their performance and make sure it doesn’t happen again…We didn’t do anything well tonight, no excuses.”
Despite making five changes to the starting XI, the Galaxy lost their ninth straight road game.
No snark – this has been one of the worst performances I've seen in a long time. Completely dominated from the beginning. #VANvLA#LAGalaxy

“We have nobody to blame but ourselves, but I thought the referee made a bad call at the end,” Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said. “It was ridiculous, the way he called the game. That is just part of it though and we have to accept responsibility too.
“The ref was inconsistent and you cannot let the goalkeeper get charged at the end,” he added. “Having said that, we still should have gotten a point today. Losing that game was ridiculous.”
