Sydney, Victory name full-strength squads

NZN 4/05/2017 Emma Kemp

Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory have named full-strength squads for Sunday's A-League grand final, setting up a fiery showpiece at Allianz Stadium.

Sky Blues coach Graham Arnold will almost certainly field the starting XI he has favoured throughout the team's stunning premiership season, unchanged from last weekend's semi-final win over Perth.

The only alteration on the bench looks to be winger Bernie Ibini, who's been named in the extended squad but is a highly unlikely prospect after injuring his hamstring against the Glory.

Young striker George Blackwood and defender Seb Ryall have been promoted and both shape as potential replacements should Ibini be ruled unfit.

Victory coach Kevin Muscat has included all his starters from Sunday's semi-final triumph over Brisbane, with young forward George Howard and midfielder Stefan Nigro earning promotions.
