Guangzhou Evergrande's Ricardo Goulart has been chosen as last week's Fans' Asian Player of the Week, following his impressive performance in his team's 5-3 win over Jeju United in an AFC Champions League Matchday three fixture.

Goulart was exceptional, scoring four goals, as the Chinese side put in an impressive performance against their South Korean opponents. He was also named the Toyota Player of the Week. 

Guangzhou were 2-1 down at half-time and looked like slumping to a loss.

But the second-half was just Ricardo Goulart show all around. He drew Guangzhou level in the 52nd minute. Four minutes later, he dispatched off a spot-kick to hand Guangzhou the lead. In the 86th minute, he extended their lead by latching on to Gao's pass and finishing past the goalkeeper. In injury-time he scored his fourth with a beautiful chipped finish.

Also in the fray for the honour were Oscar of Shanghai SIPG and Jeonbuk Hyundai's Kim Shin-Wook - both of whom were impressive in the games this past week. 

But the fans made their voice count as Goulart received a whopping 71% of the votes.

Congrats Ricardo!
