LAFC squad & team news

If the big star recruits of the mid-summer period haven't quite delivered gangbusters for LAFC, they have already turned the MLS Cup favourites into another stern side.

Missing out on the Supporters Shield when they looked to be cruising towards it will be a sting to their pride however. Cristian Tello meanwhile could make another appearance following his move from Betis.

Houston squad and team news

Bottom but one in the Western Conference, it has been a tough term for the Dynamo, though victory over New England gave them something to cheer about.

Memo Rodriguez, Ethan Bartlow and Hector Herrera are all expected to miss the cut thanks to leg injuries however - a blow for the latter in particular given looming international duty.
