Update: After scrambling back from a three-goal deficit to tie one of the league’s worst teams, New England, Chivas USA goes back on the road Sunday to meet the best team in Major League Soccer. The Earthquakes lead MLS with 52 goals and a goal differential of 19. San Jose’s Chris Wondolowski leads the league with 18 goals, two fewer than Chivas has scored as a team. Chivas has given up 14 goals in its last four games, which bode ill for a team that entered Saturday needing to erase a nine-point gap over its final 10 games to avoid missing the playoffs for a third consecutive season.
