After dominating the best team in the Western Conference on the way to a 3-0 romp, the Los Angeles Galaxy dominated the latest SBI MLS Best XI.

A total of four Galaxy players filled out the squad, led by the midfield tandem of Landon Donovan and Marcelo Sarvas, who both had a hand in all three goals scored in the victory against the Sounders.

Olmes Garcia earned his spot on the SBI MLS Best XI after coming off the bench and scoring two goals in a 3-1 Real Salt Lake victory against Montreal.

Vancouver Whitecaps playmaker Pedro Morales may not be going to the MLS All-Star Game, but he showed why he just might be the front-runner for MLS Newcomer of the Year after his masterful showing in the Whitecaps’ 2-2 tie vs. FC Dallas.

Here is how the rest of the SBI MLS Best XI shook out for Week 20:

    Judging by the number of Galaxy players selected, their blowout loss to ManUtd is a distant memory now.

      Their easy victory against Seattle took my pain away, at least.

      The drubbing by United might be the best thing that happened to the Galaxy. Sometimes a little dose of humble pie goes along way in motivating a team to work together and improve as individuals. It’s like Bruce Arena said, it was nice for the Galaxy to see what quick passing and movement off the ball looked like. I’d say those are two areas they showed great improvement in against Seattle.

      Yes only real games count in determining this list.

    Valeri was great against Montreal and scored the winner, but Nagbe was dominant and in the thick of the Timber’s most dangerous moments.

    Henry and/or Wright Phillips??
