Despite being just three rounds in to the new season, there's a lot to love about the A-League this year, and this current crop of imports are at the top of the list.

This group of imports have been dubbed as the best of all time in terms of the spread of quality.

Whilst the names aren't as big a Alessandro Del Piero and Dwight Yorke, the perfomances have been impressive this season, so we've decided to list our top five in terms of production so far in the 2017-18 season.

1. Roy O'Donovan (Republic of Ireland)

The new Newcastle Jets man has been key to his side's undefeated A-League start. O'Donovan is currently the leading goal scorer in the competition with five goals, but the stat is even more impressive considering he has only had seven shots at goal. Ernie Merrick will hope that the former Mariner continues his goal scoring form as they look to improve on their below par season last year.

2 Alvaro Cejudo (Spain)

Arguably the recipient of two man of the match accolades, Cejudo has been involved in the majority of Western Sydney's goals this season being credited with two assists. In his first Sydney derby he was the best player on the pitch and looks to be a key cog in interim coach Hayden Foxe's championship hopeful squad.

3. Johan Absalonsen (Denmark)

The Danish winger and A-League new-boy has had a great start to his Adelaide United campaign, scoring on debut and then the winner against Brisbane, before he continued his good form with two assists against Melbourne Victory. Adelaide have started the competition undefeated with one win and two draws, but they will need to step it up a gear if they want to be playing finals football come seasons end.

4. Bart Schenkeveld (Netherlands)

The new Melbourne City defender has been pivotal in his team's perfect start to the season, flying under the radar and not getting the praise he probably deserves. Schenkeveld has managed to help his side secure two clean sheets from a possible three, and is a constant rock at the back for City. Despite not having a glamorous role he has gone about his business just as City would have hoped, and will be very important moving forward as City hope to gain their first A-League title.

5. Oriol Riera (Spain)

Riera is leading the Spanish contingent at Western Sydney along with Alvaro Cejudo and full-back Raul Llorente (who has also been very impressive). Riera has found the back of the net in each of the Wanderers' three games this season, and has fitted in seamlessly under Foxe. Wanderers have recruited very well and their foreign players make up one of the strongest crops in the whole league.

Honorable Mentions:

  • Raul Llorente (Spain/Western Sydney Wanderers)
  • Leroy George (Netherlands/Melbourne Victory)
  • Massimo Maccarone (Italy/Brisbane Roar)
  • Milos Ninkovic (Serbia/Sydney FC)
  • Bobo (Brazil/Sydney FC)
