MLS Team of the Week: Donovan going out with a bang

With a goal and four assists over two LA Galaxy wins, the MLS legend is in fine form entering the final months of his career.

Landon Donovan does not look like a player whose career is winding down.

Although the LA Galaxy star's time on the field will end at some point in the next few months, Donovan has shown he still has plenty left to contribute by compiling three goals and five assists over his past four games.

After converting a penalty kick and setting up two tallies in a win over D.C. United on Wednesday, Donovan picked up two more assists in the Galaxy's victory against Chivas USA on Sunday. While Donovan created seven chances last week, no other player produced more than three.
