Buriram United's Edgar Silva has been chosen as last week's Fans' Asian Player of the Week, following his impressive performance in his team's 3-2 first leg win over Jeonbuk Hyundai in an AFC Champions League Round of 16 fixture. 

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

The Thai side had a dream start when Edgar Silva got on the end of Yoo Jun-su’s cross to head the ball back across goal and give them the lead in the sixth minute. Then he came up with a terrific goal to score Buriram's third as he weaved his way past the Jeonbuk defence with a mesmerising run and finished.
