After the 2-2 draw between the LA Galaxy and St. Louis City SC last Sunday, September 10, Billy Sharp, who tied the score in the 82nd minute, spoke to the press and in addition to talking about the said match, set his sights on the Galacticos' next game.

When asked about his expectations for "El Trafico," Sharp described himself as excited about the derby between the Galaxy and LAFC. "I'm looking forward to playing the derby," the British striker initially declared.

"These are the games that we as professionals want to play. They've had a disappointing result this weekend, so we've got to go there and put it to them and make sure we're on the front foot."

Billy Sharp: "The lads have told that El Trafico it's hostile, wich I quite like"

Sharp added that his teammates have told him that the atmosphere of the Los Angeles Derby "is hostile," but he admits that he likes that element.

"Hopefully we can get three points for our fans," the forward concluded. Sharp is aware that, with only 8 games remaining in the regular season, starting to add 3 points, and not just 1, is vital for the LA Galaxy.
