A-League Team of the Week: Round 4

Bart Schenkeveld (City)

Muscular, classy and effective. The Dutchman stood out again in the clash at Coopers against the Reds. Arguably the signing of the season in the league.

Iacapo La Rocca (City)

The Italian is relishing the environment at City and his partnership with Schenkeveld was on show against his former club - the pair were absolutely dominant.

HOLDING MIDFIELD 

Stefan Mauk (City)

Playing well enough to keep some big names out of the side, Mauk is flourishing under Warren Joyce and had a superb game in the 2-0 win over Adelaide on Friday.

STRIKERS

Ross McCormack (City)

Two well-taken first half goals from the Scot won it for City. Can't ask more than that from your number 9. He’s all class and will only get better, which is a worry for the rest of the league.

MANAGER OF THE ROUND

Warren Joyce (City)

Quietly and methodically, Joyce has built a team that works its socks off for the cause and has a hard edge. Structure is spot on, defensively sound and with an edge to their attack. Deserved winners on the weekend. The former Manchester United assistant coach has found a winning formula very quickly.

Warren Joyce will take charge of his first Hyundai A-League match when Melbourne City host Brisbane Roar in Rd 1.
