Here are Colin’s keys as the 'Caps look to keep their playoff hopes alive at home against LA Galaxy.

Chicharito needs to be watched

The Mexican international is the Galaxy’s leading scorer with 14 goals.

But he can also be a delicate flower around the box.

He needs to be watched, and we need to be careful with challenges around the box.

Gauld is back

We’ll have a huge boost on Wednesday with the return of Ryan Gauld.

Gauld leads the team in goal contributions in MLS with 13 – six goals and seven assists.

He needs to be on the ball.

Balls in behind

This Galaxy back four needs to be put under pressure.

We saw what can happen with that when the ‘Caps scored twice in their last match.

Balls in behind and down the sides will put us into dangerous areas.
