Buoyed by the arrival of Wayne Rooney from Everton, the native of Buenos Aires was named an MLS Best XI in 2018 with career highs in goals (10) and assists (17, second in the league). He had nine goals and 10 assists following Rooney’s midseason addition. Despite his stature, Acosta has been one of the most impactful players on the field for United the past three seasons. The creative dynamo is a wizard on the ball, vexing defenders with all of his moves.

OUTSIDE MLS: Acosta is a product of the much-revered Boca Juniors youth academy. He made over 20 appearances with the Argentinian giants before being loaned out to Estudiantes. There he made 27 appearances, scoring one goal.
