With an 80.0% win rate over Vermes’ side in the last five head-to-heads, Los Angeles sure look like favorites against this opponent ahead of the kick-off on Sunday.

Los Angeles team news and form: Los Angeles shockingly poor start

Despite having top goalscorer on his side in last week’s clash against Real Salt Lake City, coach Steven Cherundolo couldn’t find a way to get anything against Mastroeni’s boys. However, the good news for the US manager is that he will be able to count on his best men for the game against Sporting Kansas City.

Predicted lineup: Lloris (GK), Murillo, Long, Campos, Hollingshead, Ilie, Tillman, Atuesta, Bouanga, Bogusz & Olivera

Sporting Kansas City team news and form: Vermes will try to prove bookies wrong

With two consecutive draws in MLS, you could make the case that Sporting Kansas City aren’t performing as consistently as the fans were hoping for at the start of the season. Khiry Shelton is injured and won’t perform for Peter Vermes against Los Angeles, which surely benefits our Los Angeles vs Sporting Kansas City predictions.

Predicted lineup: Melia (GK), Davis, Rosero, Fontas, Leibold, Thommy, Radoja, Walter, Russell, Pulido & Salloi

Player to watch: Hugo Lloris

Maxime Crepeau out, Hugo Lloris – in. This is what Los Angeles’ transfer policy was like during the winter, and while it’s still too early to tell if that was the right call from the team’s men in charge, we have to give them credit for signing one of the most prolific goalkeepers of our generation.

World Cup winner Lloris wants a clean sheet

The World Cup and Euro winner with France just began his MLS journey, but so far, it’s been a rocky ride. He conceded on three occasions against Pablo Mastroeni’s Real Salt Lake City, so we are convinced he’d be eager to prove our Los Angeles vs Sporting Kansas City predictions correct.
