Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard scored his first goal in Major League Soccer for Los Angeles Galaxy, since joining Major League Soccer to help LA Galaxy beat Dallas 3-2 on Sunday and climb to the top of the overall league standings.

Former Spurs attacking midfielder Giovani dos Santos and former Spurs striker Robbie Keane, who is also the captain of the MLS champions, scored in the first-half before Gerrard connected in the 57th minute as the Galaxy ended their perplexing three-game scoreless stretch with a barrage of goals from their talent-laden squad.

This is also the first time when all three of the designated Galaxy stars found the net in the same game.

Here is a video of Gerrard’s goal-

Galaxy (14-9-8) jumped to the top of the league standings with 50 points – two points clear of the Vancouver Whitecaps and New York Red Bulls and three points ahead of Dallas. Those clubs, however, all have games in hand on the defending MLS Cup champions.

Gerrard spent 17 years at Liverpool, scoring 120 goals in 504 appearances and leading the club to two FA Cup titles and one Champions League trophy. The 35-year-old former England captain had played eight games for Los Angeles without scoring a goal since his MLS debut in July.

‘I didn’t have a problem with my confidence,’ Gerrard said. ‘I think the goal is important for the team. We’re at the business end of the season, and it’s all about three points. It’s not about individuals and tallies and who gets what.’
