Options that could see your Fantasy Points sprint upwards



Goalkeeper


Amrinder Singh: Last season’s Golden Glove winner has just kept 1 clean sheet in ISL 2017, but it is not due to a lack of effort on the part of Amrinder Singh. The 24- year old has made 26 saves so far, the most by a keeper in ISL 2017. With Mumbai playing at home, Amrinder has a good chance of keeping his first clean sheet of ISL 2017.


Defenders


Lucian Goian: The strapping Romanian, despite Mumbai City FC’s underwhelming start, has continued in the same vein of form as last season where he was named the best defender. Goian has attempted a massive 37 tackles, the most by a defender in ISL 2017. His 11 interceptions is also the 2nd most by any player in ISL 2017.

Gerson Vieira: Gerson Vieira has been superb for Mumbai City FC so far. The Brazilian has attempted 206 passes, 2nd most by a Mumbai City FC player. He has also been a threat going forward attempting 5 shots so far, highlighting his offensive threat. With NorthEast United struggling for goals Gerson is a must pick.

Nirmal Chettri: The Bhaicung Bhutia soccer school product has impressed with his rugged defensive performances so far. Nirmal has attempted 23 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.

Goncalves: The Portuguese defender has been superb so far for NorthEast United helping them keep 2 clean sheets so far and leading by example. The experienced defender has also been a threat on the set pieces due to his big frame. With Mumbai City FC’s yet to convince, Goncalves can be NorthEast United’s hero.

Midfielders


Achille Emana: The Nigerian has perhaps been the only Mumbai City FC midfielder who has appeared to carry any offensive threat for the opposition. Achille Emana has the potential to dominate the midfield with his ball carrying ability and physicality. He has attempted the most passes by a Mumbai City FC player.

Narzary: The speedy winger has assisted 1 out of the 2 goals that NorthEast United have scored so far. The 23-year-old is expected to start the match and with Mumbai City FC yet to find their best right back Narzary will be one of NorthEast United’s primary threat going forward

Marcinho: The NorthEast United playmaker was bright in their first 2 matches and is one of 2 players to score for NorthEast United this season.The Brazilian has attempted 11 shots so far, second most by any NorthEast United player. His quality means he will surely be involved if NorthEast United score.

Everton Santos: The Brazilian has impressed with his work rate and directness with the ball going forward. His impact can be highlighted by the fact that Mumbai City FC have scored 4 goals from open play and Everton Dos Santos has played a part in 3 of those goals. The 31-year old’s 10 shots attempted is also the 2nd most by a Mumbai City FC player.


Forwards


Danilo: The Brazilian forward has shown glimpses of his undoubted potential but despite his attempting the most shots in ISL 2017 he has scored just once. The former Santos youth product is blessed with decent technique and is able to escape the attentions of the defenders with neat footwork. Given Mumbai’s defensive struggles so far, Danilo will have a few opportunities to score his 2nd ISL goal.

Balwant Singh: The strongly built Balwant Singh has scored 2 goals, one with a superb long ranger and another with a poacher’s finish. The 31- year old has attempted 11 shots, the most by a Mumbai City FC player.
