4 reasons to watch Westfield W-League Round 6

Fresh from winning the AFC Women's Player of the Year award, Sam Kerr is back in Sydney and set to line up for Perth Glory against Western Sydney Wanderers on Friday night. 

But with a four-way tie at the top of the ladder, it's set to be a fascinating round of action across the Westfield W-League this weekend. 

Here's why you shouldn't miss a minute of the action... 

ASIA'S BEST PLAYER ON SHOW

Sam Kerr's sensational 2017 continued this week when she was named Asia's best female footballer.

Fresh from collecting yet another accolade, the Westfield Matildas superstar has rejoined her Perth Glory team-mates for their visit to Western Sydney.

The Wanderers defence can't just focus on Kerr though with US striker Rachel Hill leading the Golden Boot race with seven goals in just five games.

OUR NEXT RISING STAR

It's hard to believe Kyra Cooney-Cross is only 15 years old.

Fresh from her nomination for the Westfield W-League, NAB Young Footballer of the Year 2017/18 Award, the young star travels with her Melbourne Victory team to take on Sydney FC on Saturday evening.

Cooney-Cross has started all of her side's game this season, earning glowing reviews for her performances against far more seasoned opponents.

PASS MASTERS

One standout feature of the stats charts this season is the domination of one of the metrics by a single side.

Incredibly, the top five passers so far this season all play for the same team - Melbourne City.

With Lauren Barnes and Yukari Kinga leading the way, City will look to pass their way around Adelaide United at CB Smith Reserve on Sunday evening.

FORM TEAMS COLLIDE

Canberra United have won their last three matches in impressive fashion, but they face a test of their title credentials this weekend.

Brisbane Roar pay a visit to McKellar Park on Sunday, fresh from back-to-back wins of their own.
