3. Mauricio Pereyra

Orlando City is nothing without its talismanic man in the middle Mauricio Pereyra, and the Uruguayan delivered against Charlotte. Pereyra finished with three chances created and routinely created moments of magic in possession.

The highlight of the match for Pereyra came on the game's second goal, when he spotted the sprinting Ruan down field and lofted a pass to the Brazilian for a devastating breakaway. The play required a lot from both Ruan and Facundo Torres (spoiler alert they're coming up soon), but it all started with Pereyra's vision and quality.
