Mooy had a hand in City’s 3 1st-half targets, scored by Erik Paartalu, Connor Chapman and Bruno Fornaroli.

Sidnei’s reply for Glory on the cusp of the break had City fans nervous but they need not have worried.

Although City fell apart in their past house games, they completed the job in style on Friday night by way of Harry Novillo’s thunderbolt and Mooy’s own penalty.

Even worse for Glory, rookie defender Aryn Williams received a second yellow for a challenge on Stefan Mauk with eight minutes remaining.

The outcome is City’s very best A-League residence win, lifting them to fifth in the table.

Glory were utterly at sea, conceding 25 shots, but the evening belonged to Mooy.

Even by his own lofty requirements, the Socceroo enjoyed a beautiful night.

Soon after becoming a father for the first time on Wednesday, Mooy crossed for two assists, had a hand in two other people, scored himself and even cleared a objective-bound Glory header off the line.

At 1 point, the midfielder created a stepover and turn to break away from three opponents in close attention.

Mooy started the celebration by assisting for Paartalu right after five minutes.

His well-weighted cross located the towering midfielder at the back post and the header was deflected in.

On 20 minutes, Mooy was at it once more.

Dribbling past a bamboozled Marc Warren, Mooy’s cross discovered Chapman to drill previous Ante Covic at the near post.

With 10 minutes just before halftime, Mooy’s arrowed ball from his personal half released Corey Gameiro to assist for Fornaroli’s purpose.

The Uruguayan fired past Covic for his sixth aim of a brilliant debut A-League season.

But while City had been locating the back of the net, Perth plugged away.

Right after a Richard Garcia header was ruled out for obstruction, Sidnei headed house for Glory in first-half injury time from Nebojsa Marinkovic’s corner.

It was a speed bump and not a road block for City, with Novillo adding his name to the scoresheet on 53 minutes.

The Frenchman was a continuous menace to Glory’s back four and unleashed a rasping half-volley for City’s fourth.

Gameiro was helped off with a knee injury on the hour mark, ahead of Williams’ rash challenge on Mauk gave Mooy the platform to cap City’s 5-star night from the spot.
