Newcastle Jets Team News:
Central defender Lachlan Jackson is a long-term injury for the Jets due to a knee injury. He will not feature again this season.
While Ben Kantarovski (quad), and Noah James (hand injury) are both out of this game as well due to their respective injury issues.
Abdiel Arroyo was demoted to the bench for the last game, consider him to be in the playing 11 in this game.
Newcastle's new signings Bernie Ibini and Joe Ledley have been phenomenal for the team, while the latest addition to the roster, Wes Hoolahan, who made his first start for the club last week, also impressed and should get another start here.
In addition, Bernie Ibini, and Pat Langlois have earned a recall.
Newcastle Jets key players:
Roy O'Donovan: Jets' best bet to find the back of the net these days. The 34-year-old may be new to this team after joining the team in the winter transfer window, but he is an indispensable part of this team's set-up, having scored three times and set up one in the first six games.
Dimitri Petratos: But the Uruguyuan is no doubt the player of the season for the Jets. He has been the most consistent player this season for Newcastle. What makes him unique in this team is his game which is almost complete, as he can score and also boasts unparalleled creativity in this team. Goals: 05. Assists: 07.
Matthew Millar: Jets' current form is a good reflection of Millar's own form at the moment. He has upped his game in recent weeks, and that shows on his output for the team. Good passer and can find back of the net as well. Goals: 04. Assists: 02.
Abdiel Arroyo: He can be your dark horse because he is in decent form. Goals 2, Assists 3.
Nikolai Topor-Stanley: Consider him a dark horse or a game-changer. The 35-year-old is a big threat during set-piece situations.
Angus Thurgate: The 20-year-old Australian can be a game-changer.
Newcastle Jets squad to face Melbourne City FC:
Glen Moss, Bobby Burns, Jason Hoffman, Nigel Boogaard, Steven Ugarkovic, Roy O’Donovan, Wes Hoolahan, Abdiel Arroyo, Dimi Petratos, Nick Fitzgerald, Matt Millar, Joe Ledley, Johnny Koutroumbis, Kosta Petratos, Lewis Italiano, Bernie Ibini, Pat Langlois, Connor O’Toole, Angus Thurgate, Nikolai Topor-Stanley

That means, Jack Hendry (knee), and Richard Windbichler (hamstring) are the only absentees for the visitors ahead of this game.
Moudi Najjar and Stefan Colakovski both have earned a recall.
Melbourne City FC key players:
Jamie Maclaren: League's best player at the moment, for he leads the whole league with 18 goals in 19 appearances. He scored a brilliant hat-trick last week.
Adrián Luna: Returns from suspension and he will be starting the game. The Uruguayan is having a very good season. He has four goals and as many assists so far in the campaign.
Florin Berenguer: Thirty-year-old is also a very good option. He can score and set-up as well.
Craig Noone: The former Brighton & Hove Albion player is also a very important figure in this team. He is a threat in front of the goal. A very good option to have.
Melbourne City FC squad to face Newcastle Jets:
Tom Glover, Scott Galloway, Scott Jamieson, Harrison Delbridge, Josh Brillante, Rostyn Griffiths, Jamie Maclaren, Florin Berenguer, Craig Noone, Nathaniel Atkinson, Markel Susaeta, Denis Genreau, Lachlan Wales, Adrian Luna, Ramy Najjrine, Curtis Good, Dean Bouzanis, Moudi Najjar, Connor Metcalfe, Stefan Colakovski
