ANALYST

The MLS returns to the fold with another important fixture this weekend as San Jose Earthquakes take on Los Angeles FC on Sunday. Both teams have been fairly inconsistent this year and have a point to prove in this match.

Los Angeles FC are in fifth place in the MLS Western Conference standings at the moment and have been fairly impressive this season. The away side suffered a 4-1 defeat last week and cannot afford a similar debacle in this game.

San Jose Earthquakes, on the other hand, are in 10th place in the league table and have not been at their best this season. The Earthquakes held Portland Timbers to a 1-1 draw in their previous game and will want to take it up a notch in this fixture.
