MLS team of the week: Ex-Everton star Landon Donovan shines for the LA Galaxy

USA Flag 2

Former Everton loanee Landon Donovan was the star performer of week 20 in MLS, grabbing a goal and two assists in the LA Galaxy's 3-0 win over Seattle.

GK – Raul Fernandez (FC Dallas)

The Peruvian international was the hero of his side’s 2-2 draw with Vancouver, making save after save in the second-half to help the club to a hard-fought point on the road.

RB – Chris Klute (Colorado Rapids)

After a hamstring issues disrupted his start to the season, Klute has been getting back to his old-self in recent weeks, rediscovering his stellar form of 2013 as the Rapids defence shutout Chivas USA for a 3-0 win.

CB – Drew Moor (Colorado Rapids)

One of top centre-backs of the season so far, Moor was another member of the Rapids backline who had a solid week, grabbing his second goal of the season in the win over Chivas.

CB – Giancarlo Gonzalez (Columbus Crew)

After an outstanding World Cup for Costa Rica, Gonzalez has returned to MLS to continue his fine run of form, holding the New England Revolution to the one goal as Columbus claimed a 2-1 win at Gillette Stadium.

LB – Robbie Rogers (LA Galaxy)

Rogers has been having a career renaissance since Bruce Arena opted to move the winger to full-back last month, another fine performance in the 3-0 win over the Seattle Sounders further proving the head coach’s decision to be a wise one.

RM – Dominic Oduro (Toronto FC)

The quickest man in the league had his best performance in a Toronto shirt since being traded to the Canadian club in June but, despite tormenting Sporting KC down the wing with his blazing pace, his efforts weren't quite enough to prevent a 2-1 defeat.

CM – Gershon Koffie (Vancouver Whitecaps)

Grabbing an assist in the 2-2 draw with Dallas, Koffie put in another influential performance in the centre of the pitch, looking dominant on the defensive side of the ball but also helping out multiple times in attack.

CM – Marcelo Sarvas (LA Galaxy)

Much like he has done for most of the season, Sarvas bossed the midfielder for LA throughout their 3-0 win over Seattle, his central partnership with fellow Brazilian Juninho standing out as one of the best in the league.

LM – Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City)

Zusi showed why KC were so desperate to keep him in MLS, with his key role in their 2-1 win over Toronto FC proof he’s worth the new lucrative DP contract.

ST – Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy)

In what’s been a largely disappointing season for Donovan, the MLS legend duly showed that he’s far from finished with a goal and two assists firing LA to the 3-0 win over table-toppers Seattle.

ST – Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes)

Wondolowski was far more dominant in the 5-1 thumping of the Chicago Fire than his one goal and one assist would suggest, troubling the opposition defence throughout the 90 minutes to prove his reputation as one of the league’s most feared marksmen.
