Alexandre Pato

Stats: 3 G, 2 A

Pato is probably Orlando City's team MVP through two months of the season. The former Brazilian international has been simply sensational in the purple shirt this year, playing as a striker, a false nine or a winger.

Pato's excellent skill on the ball complements the group extraordinarily well, and he's proven to be a quality goalscorer. He could probably have a few more goals if he was a bit more clinical, though he's about even with his expected goal numbers.

Best of all Pato's been healthy! Getting two full months out of Alexandre Pato is not something anybody would've bet on coming into the year, so kudos to him on staying fit and ready.

Grade: A+
