Kerala Blasters

Sandip Nandy - 4/10

It was his mistake in the second half that turned things in Delhi's way. Zambrotta's side took advantage of the error by the goalkeeper and scored the first goal. The Indian goalkeeper was shaky throughout the match.

Sandesh Jhingan - 6/10

Lewis and Marcelinho gave the defender a tough time, but still, he managed to keep his solidity. The 23-year-old couldn't help the team's attack, but Jhingan was one of Kerala's better players on the night.

Cedric Hengbart - 6.5/10

Hengbart was probably the only Kerala player to have played up to the mark on Friday. The Frenchman did well to handle Gadze and other Delhi attackers. If it wasn't for him, their opponents would have scored more goals.

Ouzin Ndoye - 4.5/10

The Senegalese was brought into the team in place of marquee player Aaron Hughes, who has left for International duty. Ndoye was not able to step into Hughes' boots and was a complete failure at the back. The 24-year-old was given a nightmare by Marcelinho.

Josu Currais - 4.5/10

The Spaniard was not able to do anything from the left-back position. Josu had to face a very tough time against Marcelinho. There is nothing much an attacking midfielder like him can do against a player like Marcelinho.

Mehtab Hossain - 4/10

Hossain did not play up to his standards on the night. He gave away the ball cheaply and also gave some free-kicks away after making poor tackles. 

Azrack Mahamat - 6/10

Mahamat probably must be the most underrated Blasters player this season. The 28-year-old ensured that things were not too easy for Malouda and Milan. There was nothing much he could contribute to the team's attack.

Ishfaq Ahmed - 4/10

Ishfaq started instead of Mohammed Rafique and was a waste in midfield. The 33-year-old was expected to contribute both to the team's attack and defence, but he didn't do both. The midfielder had a nightmare against Souvik and Lewis.

Boris Kadio - 5/10

Two of Kerala's best attempts came from Kadio. The 26-year-old's header was saved by Doblas and his long range effort went just wide of the post. Defensively he did not contribute much.

Mohammed Rafi - 4/10

Rafi was too easy for the Delhi defence to handle. He couldn't even properly get past a defender on the night. The Blasters manager Coppell might need to turn to Thonghosiem Haokip, if he is to find a solution for his team's goalscoring woes.

Kervens Belfort - 5/10

Belfort tried causing trouble to the opposition defenders using his dribbling and physicality but it didn't work out well for him. The Haitian forward still lacks in the final third.

Substitutes

Pratik Chowdhary - 5/10

Pratik came in for Ndoye and occupied the right-back position. Like the rest of the Kerala team, he also struggled against the strong opposition. There was nothing much he could do.

Duckens Nazon - 5/10

Nazon was brought in by Coppell with the hope of getting back into the game, but it didn't work out. There was nothing much the Haitian could do to help his team score a goal.

Antonio German - 5/10

Like Nazon, German was also brought into the game with the hope of scoring a goal and getting back into the game. The 24-year-old tried taking a shot on goal, but his strike was too weak that it could hardly be called a shot on target.
