We rate the top five players from the weekend’s A-League action.
Michael McGlinchey (Wellington Phoenix)
The Kiwi international had a hand in both of the Phoenix’s goals and was a constant presence in the middle of the park.
McGlinchey played the false nine role with aplomb, dropping back and creating space for himself to wreak havoc on the Sydney FC defence.
Chris Harold (Perth Glory)
The 22-year-old grabbed two goals and an assist as the top-of-the-table Glory destroyed Central Coast 4-1 at NIB Stadium.
He also played a small role in Daniel de Silva’s wonderstrike in the second half.
Connor Chapman (Melbourne City)
Chapman was excellent in organising the Melbourne City defence as well helping keep the dangerous Besart Berisha quiet.
The youngster was absolutely pivotal in City’s win over its crosstown rivals.
David Carney (Newcastle Jets)
Carney was yet again very good for the Jets, and finally came away with a reward.
The former Blackpool man helped set up Jeronimo’s winner and was a constant danger for the Adelaide defence.
Nathan Burns (Wellington Phoenix)
Surely the Asian Cup beckons for the Phoenix man.
Burns hit a double in Wellington’s 2-0 away win over Sydney FC, and now has nine goals for the season.
Will Ange Postecoglou select him in his final 23 on Tuesday?
