Graham Arnold’s Sydney FC continue to set the A-League regular season pace with the table toppers now nine points clear of Newcastle Jets in second, and the reason for such a sizeable advantage at the top can be explained by the fact that they have not lost any of their last 13 league matches. This weekend they travel to Melbourne to face a City side who currently lie third in the league ladder. Although it will prove something of stern test, there is no reason to suggest why this unbeaten run cannot extend to 14 games for the leaders

The last time that Melbourne City got the better of Sydney FC was back in March 2016, but since then they have failed to win any of their last five meetings with the current league leaders. It may be something of a barren spell as of late but there was plenty to celebrate almost two years ago. That is because City, playing in front of their own fans, cruised to a 3-0 win with Bruno Fornaroli scoring a hat-trick.
