ISL season three is up and running with all the eight teams still having a chance to reach the knockout stages. Fans have seen some spectacular individual performances and some enthralling games which were decided in the final few moments. Delhi are leading the pack at the moment while Zico's men are reeling at the bottom after a disastrous start.

Some Indian players have caught the eye while some experienced one have flopped this campaign. Youngsters like Kean Lewis have done well along with a few new foreign names.

So let's take a look at the 5 fan favourites from this edition of Indian Super League :

#5 Mohammed Sissoko - FC Pune City

Sissoko has been the best defensive midfielder of ISL 2016

The Malian was brought in as a last-minute replacement for Eidur Gudjohnsen who suffered a season-ending injury before the first game. Sissoko, the youngest marquee signing of this season has adjusted well to the demands of Indian football. He missed Pune's first game against Mumbai but has started all the remaining five games for the Stallions.

Playing in his favoured defensive midfielder position, Sissoko has brought much-needed solidity in the centre of the park which has enabled Pune to still be in the race to reach their first ever semi-finals.

The 31-year-old is currently the player with the most tackles and most interceptions for a midfielder this season and may be one of Pune's most inspired signing ever.
