LA Galaxy slugs it out with Houston Dynamo in MLS Cup 2011.

The MLS Cup 2011, between the L.A. Galaxy and Houston Dynamo, will be one for the books as there are lots of possible records to be achieved when these two soccer clubs meet on November 20, Sunday night, 9:00 p.m. ET.

It will be a battle of experience and talent on the pitch of Home Depot Center, as both clubs seek to annex their third MLS Cup title. The LA Galaxy vs Houston Dynamo match live stream will be broadcast through ESPN, Galavision and TSN 2.

D.C. United has already won four MLS titles with its last coming in 2004. It could be either Galaxy or Dynamo joining United as the only franchises with three MLS titles.

Dominic Kinnear and Bruce Arena have two titles on their sleeves and are both seeking their third. Arena has given D.C. United two titles. Kinnear has helped Houston win its two titles in 2006 and 2007, against the New England Revolution.

L.A.'s poster boy, David Beckham, will be playing the last game of his multi-million dollar contract signed with the club in 2007. Beckham has won league titles in his final year campaign with Manchester United in 2003 and Real Madrid 2007. Could this be another title for Beckham with Galaxy?

Rumors are circulating that Los Angeles will try to recruit Chelsea forward Frank Lampard to replace Beckham.

Landon Donovan is playing well and could be on his way to his second MLS Cup MVP. Donovan will be playing in his fifth MLS Cup finals, and has recorded 19 goals in the MLS playoffs and three goals in the MLS Cup. Another title for Galaxy might give Donovan another feather in his cap.

The Home Depot Center will host its record fourth MLS Cup, and the Galaxy will be the third team to play the MLS Cup finals at its home stadium. Galaxy has been very impressive in home matches, not losing a single match this season. The home crowd will be another factor for Houston to contend with to win its third MLS Cup.

Watch Houston Dynamo vs LA Galaxy live stream, for this could be another exciting MLS Championship on Sunday night as both clubs try to rewrite MLS history.
