Mumbai City FC and ATK Mohun Bagan played out an evenly contested 1-1 draw in the ISL earlier tonight (February 3).

David Williams put the Mariners ahead after just nine minutes when he was put in by Hugo Boumous after a mistake from Ahmed Jahouh. However, the Islanders got back through an own-goal by Pritam Kotal from Bipin Singh's cross 15 minutes later.

Here are the player ratings from the game:

Mumbai City FC

Mohammad Nawaz - 6/10

Nawaz had several nervy moments with his passing, decision-making and communication with the Mumbai City FC defense. However, he made some excellent saves, with a fingertip effort to keep out Williams particularly standing out.

.@nawaz_nao has been brilliant between the posts for The Islanders tonight, making crucial saves so far πŸ§€πŸ’―#MCFCATKMB #HeroISL #LetsFootball | @MumbaiCityFC

Mandar Rao Dessai - 6.5/10

Dessai performed excellently in defense, keeping Manvir Singh quiet for most of the game. His attacking contributions were fairly limited though.

Mehtab Singh - 6/10

Mehtab Singh put in a decent shift to keep ATK Mohun Bagan in check during the second half after some nervy moments while playing out from the back.

Mourtada Fall - 6.5/10

Fall looked assured on the ball and was the most composed in the Mumbai City FC backline against the Mariners' early high-press. He also managed a key pass going forward and was a threat from set-pieces.

Rahul Bheke - 6.5/10

Bheke nullified Liston Colaco's threat well but didn't close him down on a couple of occasions. He managed a team-high three tackles, completed 80% of his passes and also provided a key pass.

Ahmed Jahouh - 5.5/10

Jahouh was too casual outside his own box for ATK Mohun Bagan's goal and was closed down well by the Mariners' midfield. While he did deliver a couple of decent balls into the box, his set-piece delivery was also not up to its usual standards.

Lalengmawia Ralte - 7/10

Ralte was his usual metronome self in midfield, constantly looking to spray the ball around for Mumbai City FC. He also managed to make two tackles and won a foul as well.

Bipin Singh - 6/10

Bipin Singh put in a teasing cross for the Islanders' goal but wasn't effective enough in attack otherwise, registering no shots on target.

No points for guessing what happened next πŸ˜‰#MCFCATKMB #MumbaiCity #AamchiCity πŸ”΅

Cassio Gabriel - 6/10

It was a frustrating night for Gabriel, who took as many as six shots and managed zero on target. He did lay out two key passes, but Mumbai City FC needed more from their creator-in-chief.

Vikram Pratap Singh - 5.5/10

Pratap Singh made some good runs, but had little impact otherwise in attack.

Diego Mauricio - 5/10

Mauricio struggled to make an impact in his first start of the season and was substituted at half-time.


Igor Angulo - 6.5/10

Angulo replaced Mauricio at half-time. He was a much more prominent presence in attack and got a couple of shots on target as well.

79' - Igor goes close again! This time his header is saved by the keeper.#MCFCATKMB #MumbaiCity #AamchiCity πŸ”΅

Lallianzuala Chhangte - 6/10

Chhangte came on for Pratap Singh in the 60th minute. He had a couple of bright runs and one clever-headed flick-on for Angulo, but ATK Mohun Bagan dealt with him reasonably well.

Vinit Rai - 6/10

Rai replaced Jahouh in the 83rd minute and was more solid in midfield. He also sprayed the ball well to drive his team forward in the final minutes.

Brad Inman - N/A

Inman came on for Gabriel in stoppage-time. He didn't have much time to impact the game for Mumbai City FC.

ATK Mohun Bagan

Amrinder Singh - 6/10

Amrinder Singh didn't have much to do between the ATK Mohun Bagan posts and was severely wrong-footed for the goal they conceded.

Subhasish Bose - 7/10

Bose made a joint game-high seven tackles in an impressive display that also saw him register a shot on target and a key pass. He did phenomenally well to nullify Mumbai City FC's left flank.

Jose Arroyo - 7.5/10

Tiri was easily the Man of the Match with a monumental performance. He recorded two tackles, a key pass, five clearances and six interceptions. The ATK Mohun Bagan centre-back also seemed to be in the way every time the Islanders took a shot, making several blocks.

Here's your Hero of the Match Mariners!How would you rate the Spaniard's performance tonight? πŸ’šβ™₯️#ATKMohunBagan #JoyMohunBagan #AmraSobujMaroon #HeroISL #MCFCATKMB

Pritam Kotal - 6/10

Kotal's own-goal will be up for debate, but he merely seemed to be trusting his instincts from Bipin Singh's seemingly dangerous cross. He also slashed at the ball a couple of other times and looked far from his usual composed self at times after the Islanders' equalizer.

Ashutosh Mehta - 6/10

Mehta was fairly solid in defense but didn't contribute too much going forward. It was a disadvantage for his side in the second half, with Mumbai City FC crowding the midfield.

Deepak Tangri - 6.5/10

Tangri put in a decent performance in the base of midfield, combining well with McHugh to initiate moves for ATK Mohun Bagan. He ended with a key pass and a tackle to his name.

Carl McHugh - 7/10

McHugh was excellent in the center of the park, also making seven tackles to derail several of Mumbai City FC's attacks. He was also excellent at keeping the ball moving in midfield.

Liston Colaco - 6/10

Colaco once again showed glimpses of brilliance and could've even had an assist if Williams had found the net and not the post from the winger's deflected cross. However, those moments of genius were few and far in between as Colaco got just one shot on target from five attempts.

Hugo Boumous - 6.5/10

Boumous constantly looked to move his team forward and recorded a game-high five key passes despite not looking his best. He did, however, apply pressure on Jahouh to win the ball back for Williams to score ATK Mohun Bagan's opener. Boumous also managed three tackles and won five fouls, another game-high.

Manvir Singh - 6/10

Barring a few bright moments, Manvir Singh was handled very well by the Mumbai City FC defense. He too managed just one shot on target, though he did record a couple of key passes.

David Williams - 7/10

Williams did well to open the scoring with a well-struck shot into the corner from close range. He also had two more chances to score, heading onto the post with one effort and forcing an incredible fingertip save from Nawaz with the other.

GOOOAAALLL!! ⚽️David Williams pounces on a defensive mistake to put us ahead. πŸ’šβ™₯️#ATKMohunBagan #JoyMohunBagan #AmraSobujMaroon #HeroISL #MCFCATKMB


Joni Kauko - 6.5/10

Kauko replaced Williams in the 56th minute. He helped solve a major problem for ATK Mohun Bagan by adding an extra body in midfield and combined well with McHugh.

Prabir Das - 6.5/10

Das came on for Tangri in the 73rd minute. He sent in some dangerous crosses into the box and also had a couple of pops at goal.

Kiyan Nassiri - 6/10

Nassiri replaced Mehta in the 85th minute. He didn't really see much of the ball and was handled well by the Mumbai City FC defense.
