The last of the two teams to get back to ISL action after the international break will take each other on in Guwahati when NorthEast United host Mumbai City FC.

NorthEast have been a plucky outfit to face this season, showing exemplary resilience, as exemplified by their still-unbeaten start to the season. They have wins against Odisha FC and Hyderabad FC, to go with draws against Bengaluru FC and FC Goa.

Mumbai, on the other hand, have had two straight home losses to follow what was a rousing start to the season, with four away points in two games against Kerala Blasters and Chennaiyin FC. Jorge Costa's side has been ravaged by injuries, though, and the Portuguese will be hoping for the crisis to clear, and for him to have some more of his big-hitters available for selection.

NorthEast United v Mumbai City FC: Team news

Robert Jarni has a fully-fit squad to choose from, although he's unlikely to make too many changes to a settled combination that has been bringing home the points for NorthEast so far. Asamoah Gyan and Martin Chaves seem to have struck up a decent understanding, and with the likes of a red-hot Redeem Tlang to support them, NorthEast have enough reason to be optimistic.

Mumbai, on the other hand, are likely to have Modou Sougou and Rowllin Borges back. With Amine Chermiti and Mohammed Larbi cutting isolated figures, Mumbai will hope Sougou's return also galvanises the two Tunisians.
