City stun Newcastle Jets with 4-0 victory

-

Coming off two strong wins, Melbourne City wanted to maintain their dominant winning streak and they did so with a massive 4-0 result.

City kicked off the game at Hunter Stadium with three corners in three minutes but an organised Jets defence kept them at bay and turned around to dominate possession and create opportunities early in the first.

Staying onside proved the biggest challenge for the Jets as Milos Trifunovic was called offside several times throughout the match.

The Jets had a chance in the 24th minute but Lee Ki-Je sent the shot just wide of the goal from a freekick in prime position.

Connor Chapman went down during the freekick set up and was replaced by Ben Garuccio in the 27th minute.

Both teams had plenty of opportunities for goals in the first half but both teams struggled getting past some solid defence.

The 43rd minute was where it all started for City as Aaron Mooy slid a stunner past Lachlan Jackson and Mark Birighitti to put it in the back of the net.

The Jets had a few chances in the minutes to come but the 56th minute saw Fornaroli score from offside to make the lead 2-0 to the visitors.

Mooy came back to the box in the 59th minute followed closely by Fornaroli bagging his double in the 62nd minute, making it 4-0.

The atmosphere changed not only on the field but in the stands as the clearly frustrated Jets struggled to find their rhythm after some disappointing calls and plays.

With four goals in 20 minutes Melbourne City dominated the second half and the few attempts the Jets did have were denied by the referees or City’s defence.

The offside flag was in overdrive for the entirety of the game as the Jets struggled to find any momentum. The constant stop-start style of play hindered Jet’s rhythm while Birighitti struggled to defend the sticks when it counted.

It was an impressive performance from Melbourne City who put on display the depth of their squad in comparison to the thin Newcastle team.
