Matarrita, Rocha and Sands Start vs. LA Galaxy
New York City FC's lineup vs. LA Galaxy shows three changes from the team which kicked off last weekend's 2-0 win at Montreal.
With Ebenezer Ofori ruled out with a core injury, Tony Rocha comes in for his second start alongside Alex Ring at the base of midfield.
Elsewhere, James Sands returns from injury to line up alongside Maxime Chanot and Alexander Callens at the heart of defense and Ronald Matarrita replaces Ben Sweat as wing-back, ahead of Sean Johnson, who put up a Man of the Match performance on his last appearance in this fixture back in 2017.
Héber retains his place leading the line for the Boys in Blue, ahead of Maxi Moralez and Ismael Tajouri-Shradi: the two goalscorers last weekend in Canada.
On the bench, Brad Stuver, Sebastien Ibeagha, Keaton Parks, Juan Pablo Torres, Alexandru Mitriță, Jesus Medina and Taty Castellanos are options should Head Coach Dome Torrent need them in the 90'.
City can make it three road wins on the bounce with another victory in this 4pm kick-off and make it six games unbeaten.
