ISL 2019-20: Jamshedpur FC v NorthEast United match prediction, preview and where to watch
- High-flying Jamshedpur FC host still-unbeaten NorthEast United in an important ISL clash on Monday.
Jamshedpur will be high on confidence after a superb away win against FC Goa in their last game, when Sergio Castel's goal proved to be the difference in a 1-0 win for the Miners.
NorthEast, on the other hand, have alternated between wins and draws this season, with three stalemates in their five games so far.
The Highlanders drew their last game 2-2 against Mumbai City FC, with Panagiotis Triadis and Asamoah Gyan finding themselves on the scoresheet for Robert Jarni's side.

Jamshedpur FC v NorthEast United: Team News
Jamshedpur are likely to still be without their talismanic midfielder Piti, who has been missing in action with a hamstring action. Narendar Gehlot and Jitendra Singh, who made their ISL bows in the win against Goa, are expected to keep their places, after both the former Indian Arrows youngsters put in impressive displays at Fatorda.
CK Vineeth could drop to the bench, after a lacklustre display, with Isaac Vanmalsawma returning to the fold.
For NorthEast, Kai Heerings remains suspended for this game as well, which means Nim Dorjee Tamang will keep his place alongside Mislav Komorski at the heart of the defence.
Asamoah Gyan and Martin Chaves seem to have struck up a decent understanding, and with the likes of a red-hot Redeem Tlang and Panagiotis Triadis to support them, NorthEast have enough reason to be optimistic.
