Three Black and Gold players represent the Week 16 MLS Team of the Week
Following a 2-0 shutout against the New York Red Bulls on Sunday, Diego Palacios, Carlos Vela, and Jesús David Murillo all make the Week 16 MLS Team of the Week. Chiqui scored his first goal of the 2022 season in the 70th minute of the match to secure the win. Shoutout to LAFC’s Brian Rodriguez who was able to create space for Chiqui by drawing in two NYRB defenders.
LAFC forward Carlos Vela and defender Jesús David Murillo both made Week 16’s bench for their contributions to the victory.
