|World Player of the Week
For a club who have gone 11 months unbeaten in all competitions, winning is simply a way of life for Shakhtar Donetsk nowadays.
However, the confident way they dispatched reigning European champions Chelsea this week raised eyebrows around the continent and Alex Teixeira's performance played a huge part in the 2-1 victory.
The Brazilian attacker opened the scoring in the Champions League tie at the Donbass Arena, pouncing on a blocked Adriano shot to calmly open the scoring just three minutes in.
Teixeira also netted the only goal of the game in Shakhtar's trip to Tavriya on Saturday. The 1-0 triumph helped the Miners extend their lead in the Ukrainian Premier League to an eye-watering 15 points.
Alongside the likes of Willian and Fernandinho, the former Vasco da Gama player is proving that you do not need to play in a major European league to attract the plaudits on the continent.
