Chivas USA was able to wrangle all three points from last night's contest. For a full recap of last night's action, be sure to check out the full match report.

Initial impressions

  • Erick Torres scored his seventh goal in nine matches. Chivas USA has only one goal in those nine games that Torres did not either score or assist on.
  • Oswaldo Minda has been a player Alicia and I have been very high on. He came through last night sweeping the ball safely away from an unmarked Chris Pontius in the six yard box almost certainly preventing the equalizer. Minda played sparingly under El Chelis, but has been a fixture in the lineup Jose Luis Real. He only has two yellow cards to boot!

Quotables

Jose Luis Real on using an early substitution to replacing Julio Morales with Eric Avila:

"Morales did well in his minutes on the pitch … but we needed another midfielder and Morales is not a midfielder. I’m happy with Morales, but it was a tactical decision only."

D.C. United Coach Ben Olsen:

"Overall, it wasn’t a great performance from us. I think we had too many poor performances from individuals."

"I expect a little bit, you’re putting some new guys out there and some youth and they’re going to have their growing pains. I thought we saw that a little bit tonight."
