This was the Galaxy’s worst defeat since 2013 when they lost 5-0 to New England Revolution and Arena is far from happy with his squad’s performance.
“We were awful on the day. Out of 14 players that played, I thought about three of them played in an acceptable manner. We were outplayed all over the field, and, really, there’s not much you can say.
“You go into a game and most players lose their battles on the field, you don’t have a chance to win,” Arena was quoted as saying by MLSsoccer.com.

The loss has left Galaxy in seventh in the Western Conference, one place outside the playoffs and their performances have been below par. They have won just three, drawn five and lost four games so far this season. Arena needs a reaction from his players.
Galaxy have the chance to redeem themselves on May 22 when they face Houston Dynamo at the StubHub Centre.
