LAFC appeared to be simply unstoppable not long ago, but have completely come off the rails in the last fortnight.
On Wednesday, the Black and Gold were beaten 2-1 by the side then bottom of the west Houston Dynamo at PNC Stadium.
Cristian Arango, who’s scored more MLS goals than anyone else since his debut last August, equalising in vain in Texas.
Astonishingly, Steve Cherundolo’s side have now lost three on the bounce, following road defeats in San Jose and Austin.
This means LAFC are just the second MLS club, and first since SKC in 2012, to lose three successive games immediately after a winning streak of 7+
Also, they’ve conceded multiple goals in three consecutive MLS outings, despite the fact this hadn’t happened in 13 fixtures beforehand.
LAFC are now no longer top of the Supporters’ Shield standings with Philadelphia Union having leaped above them on goal difference.
Will they get back to winning ways at Banc of California Stadium?
Real Salt Lake meanwhile hammered in-form Minnesota United 3-0 in Utah in mid-week.
Sergio Córdova, Jefferson Savarino and then Anderson Julio the scorers at Rio Tinto Stadium.
Pablo Mastroeni’s side are now unbeaten in four, leaving them sixth in the west, although they’ve only won one away game since 22 May.
So, surely LAFC will get back on track back at home right?
