CARSON, Calif. -- Don't look now, but here come the LA Galaxy?
The Galaxy extended their league unbeaten run to seven games on Saturday with a 1-0 victory over Real Salt Lake. Despite inconsistent play that has marred the team's start to the season, the Galaxy extended their undefeated streak on the heels of a first half goal by Gyasi Zardes.
With the team set to play three games -- including their friendly against Manchester United -- over the next 10 days, the Galaxy believe that the team is finally starting to come together.
“We’re getting there. We’re getting, in my opinion, the best defender in the league back soon, and that can only help. I think defensively we’ve been very good this year. In most games we shouldn’t have allowed goals and we’re getting back to having a really good defensive mentality," said Landon Donovan. "Having Omar [Gonzalez] there will help us, and attacking wise, we’re starting to get better. We’ve had a lot of different guys coming in and out of the lineups, so that sort of hurts with continuity, but tonight was good. We realistically should have scored three or four goals probably. We’re playing well on that end of the field, but if we keep defending like that we are going to be hard to beat.”
