A huge match for Kerala Blaster FC

Match 75 of ISL 2017/18 will see NorthEast United take on Kerala Blasters. Kerala Blasters need a win to stay in contention for the semi-final spots, while NorthEast United will fight to avoid the wooden spoon.

Goalkeepers

T.P Rehenesh: T.P Rehenesh has been inconsistent but has appeared to find form in the last few matches. Rehenesh has made 27 saves in 14 matches. If NorthEast United are to claim a shock win, Rehenesh has to be in top form.

Defenders

Wes Brown: The English veteran was ignored for Kerala Blasters for the first few matches but since his introduction to the starting line-up Brown has impressed with his range of passing and organization of the defense.

Lalruatthara: Kerala Blasters' left-back has enthralled in his first ISL season. The 22-year-old has been impressive both defensively and offensively. The youngster has attempted 66 tackles so far, 3rd most in the ISL.

Nirmal Chettri: The Bhaichung Bhutia soccer school product has impressed with his rugged defensive performances so far. Nirmal has attempted 58 tackles, the most by a NorthEast United player. His ability to get up and down the flanks means he can also pop up with attacking returns.

Jose Goncalves: The Portuguese has been the best of a bad bunch of NorthEast United’s defense. The experienced defender has also been a threat on the set pieces due to his big frame. He has made the most passes by a NorthEast United defender so far.

Midfielders

Vineeth: After failing to score in his first 3 matches Vineeth has now scored 4 goals out of the 7 matches. With NorthEast United’s defense struggling, Vineeth is a must pick for your fantasy teams.

Courage Pekuson: Courage has arguably been the best player for Kerala Blasters. The 23-year old has impressed with his energy, versatility and all-around play. The Ghanian has been involved in most of Kerala’s good work going forward assisting 5 goals, the most by a Kerala player. He has also attempted 27 shots so far, the most by a Kerala player.

Jackichand Singh: Jackichand has blown hot and cold but the former Mumbai City FC winger is a threat with his pace and shooting. The 25-year old has created numerous opportunities for his teammates and is one of Kerala Blasters most important players.

Marcinho: Marcinho has impressed with his ability to skip away from opposition challenges and his ability to dictate play. He is arguably the only player blameless for NorthEast United’s underwhelming campaign so far. The Brazilian is also NorthEast United’s joint top scorer with 4 goals.

Forwards

Danilo: The Brazilian forward has struggled so far managing just 1 goal so far but has shown signs of showing his best form providing 2 assists in the last few matches. With Kerala Blasters defense struggling Danilo can profit.

Baldvinsson: The 32-year old opened the scoring for Kerala Blasters against ATK with a well-taken header. The well-built forward created 4 chances in the match highlighting his creative instincts. Baldvinsson has contributed with a goal and an assist each in less than 180 minutes so far.
