thumbnail Hello,

There is a long way to go this A-League season, but several players made a real splash in Week 1 - check out who made Goal.com's A-League team of the week

A-League

Team Of The Week:

Week 1

Table/Results


GOALKEEPER

Danny VUKOVIC
Perth Glory

Managed to keep a clean sheet in the win over reigning champions Brisbane Roar and made a good diving save to stop Nick Fitzgerald's shot on goal.

DEFENDERS

Michael MARRONE
Melbourne Heart

Michael THWAITE
Perth Glory

Tony LOCHHEAD
Wellington Phoenix

Craig GOODWIN
Newcastle Jets

In an unspectacular week for right-backs, Marronewas one exception, involved in the lead up to Heart's second goal as well as playing well in defence against a Victory side with plenty of attacking clout.  Thwaite was solid in defence and his efforts meant the Roar's front line did not look potent.  Lochhead stifled the influence of Sydney FC's strikers and easily picked off a number of attempted through balls from the Sky Blues' midfield, while Goodwin was easily the best of a bad bunch in the Jets' loss to Adelaide, with his creativity on the left one of Newcastle's only avenues forward.


MIDFIELDERS

Manny MUSCAT
Wellington Phoenix

Dario VIDOSIC
Adelaide United

Aaron MOOY
Western Sydney

Muscat involved in both of the Phoenix's goals and was a controlling influence in midfield, while applying the pressure on Sydney as they tried to pass their way out of defence.  Vidosic got on the scoresheet and set up another for Adelaide, and was the most threatening player on the park against Newcastle.  The A-League new boys Western Sydney deserved to have at least one representative in the team of the week, and Mooy was influential in the 0-0 draw with Central Coast in their inaugural match.  He also had a good free kick saved in the first half.  


FORWARDS

Louis FENTON
Wellington Phoenix

Dylan MACALLISTER
Melbourne Heart

David WILLIAMS
Melbourne Heart

It was a brilliant start to Fenton's career at Wellington. He scored from a diving header and his pace gave Sydney's defenders plenty of trouble throughout.  Macallister was rewarded for effort when he tapped in the winner with 15 minutes left in the Melbourne derby.  Will be a dangerous attacking force alongside David Williams and Mate Dugandzic, with the former scoring the first goal of the new season and being damaging when in possession.
