Steven Gerrard continued his fine form for Los Angeles Galaxy since making the move from Liverpool last month, providing another assist as his side triumphed over Colorado Rapids in MLS on Saturday.
Gerrard has made three league appearances for the Galaxy during his brief time in California so far and has quickly established himself as a player of great importance, scoring three times and providing two more.
His latest assist came in the encounter with the Rapids, which Bruce Arena’s side were able to win 3-1, with Gerrard once again linking up with ex-Liverpool colleague Robbie Keane to good effect.

It was hardly the most exquisite moment Gerrard has produced in his illustrious career, yet it provided Keane with enough space to find a way through the goalkeeper and end any hopes the Rapids had of sneaking a late equaliser.
The Galaxy had actually gone a goal down but fought back through Sebastian Lletget and Clint Irwin - who had found the net after a Gerrard rebound - and the Los Angeles outfit secured a first away victory in almost a year. A remarkable statistic for a side of such repute.
Gerrard, meanwhile, will be a keen observer next weekend as Liverpool begin life without him, taking on Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium in their maiden outing of the new Premier League season.
It is the same venue at which Gerrard featured for Liverpool for a final time - and it would have been one his darkest moments for the Anfield club, as they were unceremoniously thrashed 6-1 by Mark Hughes’ side on the last day of the campaign.
Gerrard and all Liverpool fans alike will be hoping for a marked improvement on this occasion, particularly following another summer of significant outlay in the transfer market.
