LA Galaxy v Minnesota United: Ramsay hoping to put losing run in rearview

Minnesota United head coach Eric Ramsay believes they will bounce back from their recent disappointing run against LA Galaxy on Sunday.

The Loons have not won any of their last six matches in MLS, losing each of the last five on the bounce, and dropped to eighth in the Western Conference.

Minnesota have been without players due to injury and international duty, but with some of those starting to return, Ramsay is hopeful it will be the spark they need to snap their losing streak.

“In the grand scheme of this difficult run that we’re on and the circumstances that surround it, there were elements of the last performance where we looked back at our best,” Ramsay said.

“I think it’s as simple as welcoming players back from injuries and internationals to get us back to the feeling before all of this took place.

“That’s a very realistic take on the situation, though we will look back at this period with some real regret and disappointment that we haven’t picked up the points we could and should’ve done.”

Meanwhile, the Galaxy’s four-game winning streak was ended by Los Angeles FC in Thursday’s El Trafico derby.

Now three points off top spot, having slipped to third, head coach Greg Vanney was left to bemoan LA’s failure to create chances at the Rose Bowl.

“I’m not interested in being a possession team for the sake of passing the ball around,” Vanney said.

“We need to use possession to put the opposition on their heels to score goals, to bury them and make them feel like we’re relentlessly coming at them, not so they can set up and be comfortable and turn us over and go the other way.”
