Indian players to watch out for
Sandesh Jhingan: After strong performances so far, he will look to continue his form and help the team with yet another clean sheet. The defender has been solid so far. With the club already having proven quality players, his addition has taken the club a notch higher and made them even stronger.
Pritam kotal: Another solid performer at the heart of the defense, his presence will make it difficult for Jamshedpur forwards to break in and get goals.
Jackichand Singh: The hero for FC Goa last season has been decent so far for the men of steel. However, he is yet to produce his last season’s form and there are no doubts about his quality. If he can get his form back today he will be a serious threat to the ATK Mohun Bagan defense.
Foreign players to watch out for
Roy Krishna: Nothing much to say about the player who proves himself whenever the team steps up on the pitch. The star player will look to continue his form and bag another hero of the match performance.
Stephen Eze: A strong defender, he has the quality to keep the attackers away and help his team with a clean sheet. The player also has the ability to score goals and he showed that in the previous game against Hyderabad where his goal helped the side draw the match.
Nerijus Valskis: The golden boot winner of the last season, he surely has the ability to score goals even against a strong defensive setup. The player already has 3 goals to his name and his performance will be a vital one if the team has to claim all 3 points and climb up the table.
For Jamshedpur, David Grande is out injured and the team will be missing his services in the match today.
Michael Soosairaj for ATK Mohun Bagan is a long term absentee. However, the team is still perfectly balanced and won’t be disappointed of his absence.
