WST vs MLC Dream11: Western United failed to build on their win over Brisbane Roar as they suffered a third loss in four matches last time out. They were beaten by Macarthur and now face a hugely difficult contest against in-form Melbourne City. The visitors have now won their last six matches after thrashing Western Sydney Wanderers last time out and with their recent run really highlighting their quality, it is hard to envisage City failing to collect another three points in this one.
