  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic and LA Galaxy host rivals LAFC in a Major League Soccer regular season match on Friday night

The Galaxy depend nearly entirely on Ibrahimovic for offence and he thanked them with another hat trick performance against the top ranked team in the league. "Ignorant people call it arrogant, intelligent people call it confidence", Ibrahimovic said. Former Arsenal striker Vela stepped up himself to put the visitors ahead with his 20th goal in 20 league games.

MLS scoring leader Carlos Vela scored twice for LAFCs.

Vela - the fastest player to reach 20 goals in a season in MLS history - grabbed his second of the evening with 97 minutes on the clock, but it was too little too late as LA Galaxy held on to secure derby bragging rights. He scored two goals past year in his Galaxy debut last March, which was also the first-ever meeting against LAFC, and has six goals in four matches against Bob Bradley's team. It leads MLS with 46 points, but has not been able to beat its rival during its two seasons. The Galaxy have a 2-0-2 edge in El Trafico.

Vela opened the scoring with his 20th goal of the season by converting a penalty kick into the bottom left corner. But Zlatan Ibrahimovichad an answer himself, as he played a sombrero on two LAFC defenders, then blasted home a lob to beat Tyler Miller in the 8th minute to make it 1-1.

Hardman brings family and friends with plenty of balloons to accompany the event and the end result is pretty emotional. When Chiefs rookie Mecole Hardman signed his contract, he apparently had a plan of what to do with some of that money.

The Swede headed in a Diego Polenta cross after 56 minutes and rifled in a left-foot shot with 20 minutes to play to complete his treble.

He completed the hat trick 14 minutes later with a blast from 21 yards out off Favio Álvarez's pass.

The victory cut LAFC's lead at the top of the Western Conference to nine points and Galaxy manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto was full of praise for his match-winner afterwards. "When I go out on the field I feel the responsibility", Irbrahimovic said.

Vela ended the scoring with goal in the seventh minute of stoppage time with a right-footed shot into the far corner.
