Adelaide United: Without playing their best, they got the job done
Adelaide United would be disappointed with the way they played. They were fortunate to claim the three points.
Brisbane Roar: Unjust loss
Brisbane Roar should be satisfied with the way in which they played, but dejected to come away with nothing. They had a goal ruled out by VAR that would’ve given them a 2-1 lead in the 60th minute. Joseph Knowles was deemed to have impeded Adelaide United goalkeeper, Joe Gauci.
Central Coast Mariners: Left empty handed
Central Coast Mariners let a 2-1 lead empty handed. In a game where both teams played with ten-men from the 25th minute, there’s no disputing that they shouldn’t have lost 3-2.
Macarthur FC: Obliterated
Macarthur FC should be embarrassed with their display. They never looked at the races.
Melbourne City: A training drill
Melbourne City kept their standards from the first minute until the last. It was a game that could give them confidence as they didn’t take their foot off the peddle.
Melbourne Victory: A win they needed, desperately!
Melbourne Victory were fortunate that two of the three goals they scored were due to Wellington Phoenix mix ups at the back.
Newcastle Jets: A solid display
Newcastle Jets would be satisfied with their performance, but upset they didn’t claim three points.
Perth Glory: Not at their best, but they claimed a point
Perth Glory showed that they were up for the fight despite it not being their best performance.
Sydney FC: Showed character and resilience
Sydney FC displayed that they are a team that’s made progress. Who would’ve thought that they would be in the top six, prior to their last two games?
Wellington Phoenix: Let their lead slip
Wellington Phoenix led 1-nil against Melbourne Victory, but lost 3-1 due to errors in defence.
Western Sydney Wanderers: Won, but not clinical enough
Western Sydney Wanderers beat Western United 1-nil, but they should’ve won by a lot more.
Western United: A shadow of themselves
Western United aren’t the same team they were last season. They need to make changes.
