NorthEast United FC vs Jamshedpur FC Team News
NorthEast United FC
The Highlanders are one of the three teams in ISL 2020-21 that have managed to stay unbeaten so far. With two wins and four draws in six matches, NorthEast United FC are placed third on the ISL standings.
Head coach Gerard Nus has managed to mould his side into a disciplined and well-oiled machine. The defence is rock-solid, led by the overseas duo of Benjamin Lambot and Dylan Fox as the pillars in the backline. Nus has used the Indian youngsters Rochharzela, Lalengmawia, Ninthoinganba Meetei, and VP Suhair across the attack with great efficiency.
Foreign strikers, Kwesi Appiah and Idrissa Sylla too have worked well for them with eight goals scored by the Highlanders. Their midfielder Federico Gallego has recovered from injury and is back in training, but is unlikely to feature against Jamshedpur.
Injured - None
Doubtful - Federico Gallego
Suspension - None
Jamshedpur FC come into this match on the back of two draws against East Bengal FC and Mumbai City FC. The Red Miners have failed to capitalize on their momentum after their surprise win over an in-form ATK Mohun Bagan side.
Head coach Owen Coyle will take some positives from the Mumbai City FC game. Despite being down to ten men since the 28th minute, they were able to hold on against a stacked Islanders' attacking line.
Lithuanian striker Nerijus Valskis has continued his fine form in attack with six goals in six matches. He will hope to add to that number against the Highlanders.
Injured - David Grande
Doubtful - None
Suspension - Aitor Monroy (Red Card)
