If the Los Angeles Galaxy are to end Sporting Kansas City's unbeaten run on Saturday, they'll have to do so without midfielder David Beckham.
The Galaxy confirmed on Friday that Beckham did not make the trip to Kansas City due to back spasms. During training on Thursday, head coach Bruce Arena told reporters that the club "hadn't made a decision" about whether or not the midfielder would make the trip due to several nagging injuries.
While Beckham did not make the trip, Galaxy midfielder Landon Donovan did travel to Kansas City and took part in the club's training session on Friday.
Without Beckham in the lineup, Arena is likely to turn to midfielders Michael Stephens or Marcelo Sarvas to replace the Englishman.
What are your thoughts about Beckham being out? Who should replace the Englishman? Who are you tipping to win Saturday's match?
