Jamshedpur FC vs NorthEast United FC – Injuries, Team News, Line-ups, Predictions, and more

- Sponsored content -
The highlanders will look to get back to the track they have been derailed from after the departure of Gerard Nus; on the other hand the Red Miners will look forward to their 4th win this season.

So far we have not seen a much convincing performance from the Men of Steel but they are still in the race to the playoffs. Under Owen Coyle 2 of their 3 victories this season have come in last 5 games.

For the Highlanders, the season has been quite different. With Spanish gaffer Gerard Nus, they were one of the most formidable sides in the league but that dominance slowly faded away towards the middle of the season. The Guwahati-based side have not won a single game in their last 7 games.

Nerijus Valskis – The Lithuanian has been at a great shape this season with 8 goals. but everybody who follows the league has to admit the fact that this is not the best from the Jamshedpur talisman. So there will be many eyes stuck between his feet.

Stephen Eze – The Nigerian has played all the minutes this season and has scored 3 goals so far–definitely an impressive stats for a defender. The Highlanders will definitely not desire being outplayed by him.

Jackichand Singh – The 28-year-old has so far provided 3 assists in 725 minutes he has spent on field. he will definitely steal some spotlight in the game.

NorthEast United

Benjamin Lambot – The Belgian has scored only 2 goals this season but with many crucial passes and plays made, he definitely is a key man for the upcoming clash. He is the only man to have been featured in all the minutes for his side.

Gurmeet Singh – Singh has spent 675 minutes between the bars this season and effected a shot-saving rate of 65%. The Indian custodian will definitely grab many attentions during the game.

Gurjinder Kumar – The former I-League champion has been a crucial part of the Highlanders’ defense this season. He will be ready to make Jamshedpur strikers’ job tougher this game.

Team News:

Jamshedpur FC – Peter Hartley might miss the game due to a suspected injury and Alex Lima will miss out due to suspension. David Grande is fit we might see Nicholas Fitzgerald on the bench.
