Police are looking for clues to help solve the mystery of a man who died in western Sydney.

Emergency workers were called to John Street, Lidcombe about 12.35am on Monday after two women spotted the 45-year-old unconscious on the footpath.

Police said the man, believed to be a local, had a wound to his head.

Paramedics tried to revive him but he died at the scene.

"It's a terrible thing to happen the morning directly after Christmas," Detective Inspector Chris Laird told reporters.

He said neighbours had not seen or heard anything suspicious, and officers would conduct a line search of the area to look for weapons or other clues.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
