LA Galaxy Vs. Philadelphia Union, Lineups: Omar Gonzalez, Donovan Ricketts Make Their Return

Omar Gonzalez and Donovan Ricketts will finally make their season debuts for the Los Angeles Galaxy. Gonzalez will start alongside Leonardo against the Philadelphia Union on Saturday. Todd Dunivant and Sean Franklin will fill out the rest of the backline in front of Ricketts, who had been spelled by Josh Saunders for the first two games. Miguel Lopez will also make his Galaxy starting debut at forward, alongside Juan Pablo Angel.

The Union will field a lineup that looks a lot like it did in the first two games. In fact, the lineup is exactly the same as it was last week against the Vancouver Whitecaps. The Union are 2-0-0 and coach Peter Nowak is obviously feeling like he has found a winning combination with Sebastian Le Toux remaining in the midfield and Danny Mwanga and Carlos Ruiz playing forward.

Galaxy lineup (4-4-2): Ricketts; Franklin, Gonzalez, Leonardo, Dunivant; Beckham, Birchall, Juninho, Donovan; Angel, Lopez

Union lineup (4-4-2): Mondragón; Williams, Califf, Valdés, Harvey; Nakazawa, Miglioranzi, Carroll, Le Toux; Mwanga, Ruiz
