Three Points and Notes from the LA Galaxy's 5-0 defeat to the New England Revolution

By Adam Serrano

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Sunday's match was a brutal one for the LA Galaxy, who fell 5-0 to the New England Revolution. 

My sidebar on the LA Galaxy's defeat can be found here while my Three Points to the match can be read here.

A few notes on the match including some provided by the Galaxy Communications staff below:

*The Galaxy arrived at Gillette Stadium 55 minutes prior to kick off on Sunday after traffic en route. 

*The 5-0 defeat ties the club record for the biggest margin of defeat in an MLS regular season game, equaling a 5-0 loss to the MetroStars on June 15, 2002.

*This was also just the second time that the Galaxy have conceded five or more goals in a game under Bruce Arena. LA lost 6-3 to FC Dallas on September 12, 2009 at The Home Depot Center.

*The Galaxy are 0-5-0 in MLS this year when conceding the first goal and 0-7-0 when doing so in all competitions.

*This was the 17th straight game in all competitions this season that the Galaxy have made at least one lineup change.

*According to the team issued game notes: Todd Dunivant (left quad strain), Leonardo (left ankle) and Jack McBean (fractured left clavicle) all missed the game because of injuries.

*Bryan Gaul and Kofi Opare were in the 18-man squad for a regular season for the first time in 2013. Each of LA’s 29 rostered players have been on the gameday squad at least once.
