Conceded two goals but had done some important saves preventing his side from drowning in a rain of goals.
S. Mandi (6.5/10) –
Mandi was not too bright on the field, as he wasn’t able to plug the influx of runs on the wing.

Was putting up a decent performance but missed couple of chances and got injured early on in the game.
S. Eze (7.5/10) –
Was a formidable presence in the back line of Jamshedpur FC but did a few good chances of scoring goals.
L. Renthlei (7/10) –
Similar to Mandi, Renthlei didn’t turn out to be too bright on the pitch and didn’t seem as active on the right flank.
J. Singh (7/10) –
Was a decent support in the double pivot system for Aitor Monroy.

Playmaker of the side. Created a lot of chances through the set-pieces he had taken. Unfortunately, weren’t converted.
