  • With the loss, the Galaxy are now 6-5-2 on the season for 20 points. They remain tied for fourth place in the Western Conference with the Colorado Rapids.
  • 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.
  • Despite conceding five goals, LA outshot the Revolution 13-9 and had six shots on goal compared to five for New England.
  • LA have now lost two straight games in all competitions and two straight to the Revolution dating back to March 2012.
  • 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.
  • After winning their first game in March, the Galaxy have now lost their first game of April, May and June.
  • Bruce Arena made two changes to the team that beat Seattle in their last league game on May 26. Hector Jimenez and Tommy Meyer each returned to the starting lineup, replacing Omar Gonzalez and Robbie Keane, each of who were away on international duty.
  • This was the 17th straight game in all competitions this season that the Galaxy have made at least one change to their lineup.
  • Todd Dunivant (left quad strain), Leonardo (left ankle) and Jack McBean (fractured left clavicle) all missed the game because of injuries.
  • Eight of the 14 players who saw action today for the Galaxy also played in Wednesday’s 2-0 loss to the Carolina RailHawks in the Third Round of the U.S. Open Cup.
  • Five different players scored on the night for New England, with four of the goals coming in the final 20 minutes. This was the first time since the 6-3 loss to Dallas that the Galaxy had conceded goals to five different players.
  • Former Galaxy forward Chad Barrett entered the game in the 88th minute and had a goal and an assist in his first game against his former club.
  • Fellow second half substitute Kelyn Rowe had a goal and two assists for New England. Rowe now has two goals and two assists in two games against LA.
  • Juninho finished the night with a game-high four shots while both he and Marcelo Sarvas had two shots on goal, which were a game-high.
  • Sarvas was booked in second half stoppage time for his fourth yellow card of the season. He is now one booking away from a one-game suspension for yellow card accumulation.
  • Bryan Gaul and Kofi Opare were each in the 18-man squad for a regular season game for the first time this year. All 29 players that have been on the club’s roster this year have now been on the gameday roster at least once this season.
  • The Galaxy will be back in action next weekend when they travel to Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah to take on Real Salt Lake. That game, which kicks off at 6:30 p.m. (PT) on Saturday, June 8, will be the second of three meetings this season between LA and RSL with the Galaxy having won 2-0 at Rio Tinto Stadium on April 27 behind goals from Mike Magee and Charlie Rugg. Real Salt Lake will visit the Galaxy on August 17.
