Supporters' Shield leaders Los Angeles FC put their derby disappointment aside to overcome Atlanta United 4-3 in a thrilling MLS clash on Friday.

LAFC succumbed to a Zlatan Ibrahimovic hat-trick in last week's loss to city rivals LA Galaxy, however, Bob Bradley's high-flying side bounced back.

Four unanswered goals from Adama Diomande, Diego Rossi, Carlos Vela and Eduard Atuesta saw LAFC come from behind to beat reigning MLS champions Atlanta in Los Angeles.

Mo Adams gave Atlanta a second-minute lead before Diomande, Rossi, Vela and Atuesta scored in a 12-minute period prior to the interval.

Josef Martinez reduced the deficit in the second minute of first-half stoppage time and Eddie Segura's 51st-minute own goal gave Atlanta some hope away from home.

However, LAFC held on for their fourth victory in five league games to move 12 points clear atop the Western Conference and 10 clear in the Supporters' Shield race.

Meanwhile, New York City claimed back-to-back wins by defeating 10-man Sporting Kansas City 3-1.

Alex Ring scored and had two assists to lead New York to third in the Eastern Conference.

Atlanta United scored twice in the final minutes to beat DC United 2-0 as the defending MLS champions moved second in the Eastern Conference.

Gonzalo Martinez came off the bench to break the deadlock in the 89th minute before Josef Martinez sealed the victory in stoppage time on Sunday.

Playing in the absence of former Manchester United and England star Wayne Rooney, who was rested for the Atlanta trip, DC should have fallen behind in the 72nd minute.

Josef Martinez earned a penalty but the Venezuela international was unable to convert, firing his spot-kick over the crossbar following a stuttered run-up.

However, Gonzalo Martinez managed to break the deadlock with a close-range header in the final minute of regulation before Josef sprung the off-side trap and added a second in the second minute of stoppage time.

With the win, Frank de Boer's Atlanta leapfrogged DC into second position in the east – three points adrift of Philadelphia Union with a game in hand.

Elsewhere, New York Red Bulls were 1-0 winners away to Orlando City courtesy of Brian White.

Brian Fernandez's brace led Portland Timbers past Seattle Sounders 2-1 and New England Revolution defeated lowly FC Cincinnati 2-0.
