The 14th week of ISL 2017 has come to an end and in the 6 games we witnessed, there were some superb performances from various teams.
Bengaluru FC and Jamshedpur FC continued their unbeaten runs, Mumbai City FC and Kerala Blasters kept themselves alive with a win over ATK while Chennaiyin FC took 4 points from 2 matches to move a step closer to the semi-finals.
In this article, we look at 5 midfielders whose performances stood out among the rest.
#5 Dimas Delgado
Dimas Delgado’s ability to retain the ball and start the attacks from deep, plus his intelligence and his ability to contribute defensively makes him one of the most vital cogs of the Bengaluru machine.
The Spaniard played a big a role in helping Bengaluru FC salvage a draw against FC Pune City through his faultless distribution. The 35-year old attempted 102 passes, the most by a player in the match.
The former Barcelona B player has attempted 823 passes at an average of 68.58 passes per match only Ahmed Jahouh has attempted more passes per match in ISL 2017/18. His defensive awareness can be highlighted by the fact that he has made 15 interceptions, the most by a Bengaluru FC player.
