3 Indian players to watch out!

Apuia

Apuia has established himself as a hot property in Indian football. Each game he plays, he proves himself worth of those 2 Crores.

Against Chennaiyin FC, who look to hit on counter, it will be important for Mumbai City FC to cut down the counter as early as possible. With Apuia being a part of the double pivot, he will be pivotal in preventing those. Also, he will once again play a huge role in maintaining possession alongside Ahmed Jahouh.

Anirudh Thapa

Anirudh Thapa is having a fantastic season under Bozidar Bandovic. There is this one skill-set which might come out helpful against Mumbai City FC when they will look to hit them on transitions. Thapa possesses an underrated skill during the transitions which help his team in several ways.

Vishal Kaith

In a season where the goalkeepers have had nothing to show so far, Vishal Kaith can be said as someone who is having a better season compared to the others in the union, even though he has performed like a huge mistake waiting to happen. For keeping this clinical attack at bay, Vishal Kaith will have to put up a clinical errorless performance between the posts.

3 overseas players to watch out!

Igor Angulo

A major reason behind the wreckage Mumbai City FC is causing is the Spaniard they bought in the off-season. Igor Angulo is currently leading the Golden Boot charts with 5 goals in 5 matches. He will be an important figure to break this tough defense of Chennaiyin FC.

Slavko Damjanovic

If there is a reason why Chennaiyin FC are maintaining a tight defence, it’s the Serbian Centre Back Slavko Damjanovic. Slavko has been quite underrated in the ISL so far. For holding this attack, Slavko will need to have another solid game.

Ygor Catatau

Ygor Catatau usually comes on when Igor Angulo goes off. And he ain’t less than any trouble. He has scored 3 goals in the 120 minutes he has played in the league so far. His scoring frequency of 40 minutes is the highest in the league (if we consider only more than 1 goals). He makes sure that the show goes on.
