San Jose Earthquakes team news and form: Horrible run from the Quakes

San Jose Earthquakes lost all of their MLS matches so far. Coach Luchi Gonzalez needs to make adjustments to his starting XI sooner rather than later, as it seems that something isn’t clicking the way it should.

Predicted lineup: Daniel (GK), Wilson, Marie, Rodrigues, Costa, Gruezo, Yueill, Pellegrino, Skahan, Espinoza & Ebobisse

Player to watch: Cristian Espinoza

If coach Peter Vermes wants to prove our Sporting Kansas City vs San Jose Earthquakes predictions successful, he’d simply have to nullify Espinoza. The Argentine winger is one of coach Gonzalez’s most lethal weapons, and we are sure that he’d be among the starters in this game.

2023 MLS campaign was the ‘Espinoza show’

Cristian managed to score a total of 13 goals and provided eight assists in 33 league games. His performance was truly admirable, but it’s time for him to make a difference for his team in 2024.
