Melbourne City sizzle in decisive victory over Perth Glory

Melbourne City won Sunday's Westfield W-League blockbuster with an emphatic 3-0 win over Perth Glory at City Football Academy on Sunday. 

With both sides on 13 points (City in fifth, Glory in fourth) there were huge implications for the top four going into this clash.

And Patrick Kisnorbo's side laid the platform for the win with a sizzling first half which saw City 3-0 up at the break. 

Hatch (25mins), Vlajnic (35mins) and Japan star Kinga after 43 mins put City in the box seat.

England international Jodie Taylor came off the bench after the break for Tyla-Jay Vlajnic. 

And Welsh international Jess Fishlock hit a typically outrageous long-distance shot onto the crossbar as City pressed for a fourth. 

But the score remained the same as City racked up a crucial three points as they moved back into the top four.
