Shilton Paul - 7/10

Paul was commanding inside his own penalty area and pulled off a few good saves whenever he was called into action. The Mariners' custodian managed to keep a convincing clean sheet on derby day as well.

Arijit Bagui - 6/10

The full-back was solid in his approach throughout the game and did not hold himself back from standing up to the likes of Dudu and Katsumi over the course of the game. Bagui was confident on the ball and was determined to win it back if necessary.

Kingshuk Debnath - 8/10

Mohun Bagan's skipper had a game to remember at the heart of the defence for the visitors who managed to complete the league double over their arch-rivals in the league. Debnath was solid at the back and was flawless when it came to positioning and awareness at the back.

Kingsley Obumneme - 7/10

Kingsley complimented his partner at the back very well and was not shy of committing himself whenever required. The defender kept his concentration throughout the game and never looked like putting a foot wrong.

Ricky Lallawmawma - 6/10

The left-back enjoyed a relatively comfortable outing at the back thanks to East Bengal's inability to make things happen down on the left flank for the majority of the game. Ricky was comfortable with the ball and came out on top during a few one vs one situation.

Nikhil Kadam - 7/10

Kadam was involved at the heart of everything the Mariners tried to create in the game and was unlucky to not get a deserving goal towards the end of the game. The midfielder put in a stellar performance in his side's biggest game of the season.

Raynier Fernandes - 7/10

The midfielder was a real force to reckon with in midfield and continued to dominate the proceedings through the middle until the final whistle. Fernandes covered a lot of ground and worked tirelessly without showing any traces of fatigue.

Cameron Watson - 7/10

Watson impressed in midfield for the Mariners with his quick thinking and vision that helped him find pockets of space for his teammates inside the opposition's final third. The midfielder was neat and tidy in possession and was always looking to turn defence into attack.

Sheikh Faiaz - 6/10

The midfielder did well to support the players ahead of him by pushing forward whenever he had the opportunity. Faiaz was always eager to try and make things happen for his side and did well to contribute effectively to a complete team performance.

Akram Moghrabi - 8/10

Moghrabi enjoyed a dream debut for the Mariners in the derby and formed a formidable partnership with Dicka in front of goal. The duo combined effectively for the first goal and were unstoppable while going forward and Moghrabi was so close to grabbing his first goal for the club on a couple of instances.

Aser Pierrick Dipanda - 9/10

The striker was simply too good to handle for the East Bengal defenders who had a hard time keeping up with his pace and physicality. Dicka netted a brace and stood out as the Hero of the derby for the Mariners who desperately needed a result.


Shilton D'Silva - 6/10

The midfielder was introduced in the 71st minute in place of Raynier Fernandes in a bid to try and see off the game and his fresh legs in midfield provided just that to the visitors. D'Silva ensured that his team went past the finishing line without any casualties.

Rana Gharami - N/A

Came on in the 81st minute to replace Kingshuk Debnath.

Azharuddin Mallick - N/A

Came on in the 90th minute to replace Akram Moghrabi.
