Amrinder Singh: Amrinder Singh has failed to keep a clean sheet for the last 7 matches, but the 24-year-old has done well making 49 saves so far, the most by a keeper in ISL 2017. With Mumbai City FC playing at home against a goal shy NorthEast United, Amrinder has a good chance of keeping his 4th clean sheet of ISL 2017/18.

Rozario: The big defender opened the scoring with a superb free-kick against ATK. The 34-year-old has been a rock in the defence for MUmbai. He has also impressed with his game reading skills. The Brazilian is also a threat from set pieces.
Nirmal Chettri: The Bhaicung Bhutia soccer school product has impressed with his rugged defensive performances so far. Nirmal has attempted 62 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.
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.
Achille Emana: Achille Emana has been superb for Mumbai City FC dominating the midfield with his ball carrying ability and physicality.

Everton Santos: Everton has contributed in 8 goals so far (4 goals and 4 assists) and his speed and willingness to run in behind the defenses offer Mumbai City FC a different dimension going forward. His 16 shots on target are the secondnd most by a Mumbai City FC player so far.
Thiago Santos: Thiago Santos is expected to return to the starting line-up, the Brazilian has contributed in 6 goals (5 goals 1assist) so far, among midfielders only Manuel Lanzarote has scored more goals in ISL 2017/18.
Rafa Jorda: Rafa Jorda was having a forgettable season until he turned up to score the winner against ATK to keep Mumbai City’s qualification hopes alive.

With Mumbai City FC needing a win at any cost, they will go on all-out attack which will provide enough chances for the 34-year-old to score.
Danilo: The Brazilian forward has managed to score just one goal this season but she showed signs of improvement providing 2 assists in the last few matches.
