Los Angeles FC is at a crossroads. LAFC were extremely exciting as an expansion franchise and set multiple offensive records in 2019 with Carlos Vela and Diego Rossi combining for 50 goals. However, LAFC just barely made the postseason in 2020 due to injuries, and they failed to make the playoffs in 2021 despite being a preseason favorite. That led to the club selling Rossi to Fenerbahce, and there are questions surrounding the club’s other stars heading into the 2022 season. New head coach Steve Cherundolo has plenty of talent at his disposal, but we could see a fire sale in the middle of the year if we don’t see significant improvement.

Los Angeles FC 2022 Preview

Everything starts with Carlos Vela for LAFC. Vela smashed all sorts of records in 2019 when he was named the MLS MVP and won the Golden Boot as the top scorer. His 34 goals in one season are still a single season record as are his 49 points. However, he was injured for much of 2020 and 2021, playing in just 27 games over the last two seasons. Vela only scored nine goals and seven assists, so LAFC are crossing their fingers that he can stay healthy now that both Rossi and Eduard Atuesta have left.

The club was hoping to get more production out of Brian Rodriguez and Latif Blessing, but neither player has been too productive this season. Rodriguez has a goal and an assist through eight games, while Blessing has yet to score a goal but has two assists in 12 games.

Instead, some new names are taking over the attack for LAFC, leading the club to the best record in the Western Conference at the end of May. The defense has been much better than what we saw last year, and new goalkeeper Maxime Crepeau has been very good in net for the club.

It’s been a great first few seasons for Los Angeles FC. LAFC was a contender right out of the gate under Bob Bradley. They finished in third place in the Western Conference in their debut season, and they were one of the final four teams in the US Open Cup. That paved the way for an incredible second season that was one of the best we’ve ever seen from any team in the MLS.

Carlos Vela put together the greatest year for a forward in MLS history in 2019. Just one year after Josef Martinez broke the single season scoring record, Vela shattered the mark with 34 goals in 31 games. He was unstoppable in Bradley’s system, adding 15 assists while linking up with Diego Rossi and Adama Diomande to create the most terrifying trio the league has ever seen. The three players combined to score 63 goals if you include the playoffs.
