Carlos Vela is having a hell of a year, scoring every chance he gets to establish himself as the leader of the goals and assists tables, with 19 and 12 respectively.

His quality and leadership have helped make Los Angeles FC the best team so far in the MLS season, with the rest of the teams chasing behind, especially cross-town rivals LA Galaxy.

LAFC earned two victories in MLS week 18, defeating Sporting Kansas City 5-1 and Vancouver Whitecaps 6-1, with captain Vela proving the most important man on the field with three goals and two assists.

And Vela's performances have seen him named MLS Player of the Week for the third time this season.

Player of the Week

Each week an MLS Player of the Week is chosen by the media and a fan voting process conducted by MLS Communications, with 75% of the vote going to North American Soccer reporters and a Twitter fan vote representing the remaining 25%.
