The Columbus Crew offense has struggled to generate goals on a regular basis, a problem the team has had going back to last year, but Robert Warzycha's side may have found the answer to that problem in the form of Costa Rican striker Jairo Arrieta.

The newly-signed forward showed just what he can do this past weekend, scoring a pair of quality goals, including this long-range strike, to help the Crew post a vital 2-1 victory over Sporting Kansas City at Livestrong Sporting Park. The performance earned Arrieta SBI MLS Player of the Week honors as well.

Arrieta beat out a strong field of candidates that also included Seattle's Eddie Johnson, Chicago's Sean Johnson and Real Salt Lake's Alvaro Saborio.

What did you think of Arrieta's performance? Which MLS player impressed you the most last weekend?
