A massive result this for Mumbai as they go on top of the table. On the other hand, Kerala Blasters have slipped to 4th in the table as FC Goa go above them on goal difference.
90 + 3' Ishfaq takes the corner but it's cleared with ease. The ball falls to Gurwinder but he eventually fouls Vadocz.
90 + 2' Josu has a good a shot on target but Amrinder is in no mood to let one go past him today. He pushes it around the post and it's a corner for Kerala
89' HOW IS THAT NOT A BOOKING? Josu just kicked out at Vadocz from the back but the referee does not get the card out!
87' Mumbai City defence have been rock solid today and have not let Kerala forwards do anything whatsoever! CK Vineeth has the chance to work some magic but Goian is right on the stop to block him.
85' Chhetri has the ball through to Norde but the striker slips up and Kerala Blasters have the possession with ease.
83' Rino Anto has all the space and time to control the ball and pass the ball ahead but he tried a back lob and it goes out for a throw-in. Sums up Kerala's performance today.
82' CHANCE! Kadio with a simple through-ball to CK Vineeth on the right side but the Blasters man can only manage to get the ball deflect off Goian and behind for a corner.
80' Mumbai City are not done yet. They are going in for goals and are bringing on Sony Norde. How many more goals do they want?
78' WHAT A CHANCE! Chhetri has a great chance to make it 6-0 to Mumbai and get his name of the scoresheet but his shot gets stuck between Stack's legs. Defederico somehow managed to squeezed a pass to Chhetri but Stack did well to come forward and close the angle.
75' Sandesh Jhingan is taken off by Steve Coppell to bring on Gurwinder Singh. Ther Keralite has been awful today.
73' It's a corner to Mumbai City and Goian jumps higher than the rest to head the ball into the back of the net.
69' IT'S AN ABSOLUTE BEAUTY! Brito Alves curls in a stunner from outside the box and makes it 4-0 to Mumbai City who are pretty much assured to be on top of the table tonight.
66' SUBSTITUTION - The hat-trick hero, Diego Forlan is taken off for Facundo Cardozo
63' That was so easy! Around 4-5 defenders in the in the box but not a single one was making Forlan! He makes to mistake and slots the ball him through Stack's legs. Mumbai City 3-0 Kerala Blasters
Were 2 goals not enough for them to realize how dangerous he is?
60' Corner to Kerala again and this time there is a decent effort at goal. Amrinder Singh fumbles the first shot but is able to hold on to it at the 2nd attempt!
56' Corner to Kerala Blasters and it's a good one but nobody is able to get it into the back of the net. It's a pinball situation inside the box.
UPDATE ON GERMAN: He looks seriously hurt but the big man is actually back playing.
54' Forlan is put through but Jhingan does excellently well to block the striker from taking a shot. The ball is put behind and it's a corner to Mumbai.
53' WHAT AN AWFUL PASS! Kerala have a great chance to pull one back but a misplaced pass right at the edge of the Mumbai box has started a counter-attack.
52' Forlan's freekick sends the keeper the wrong way but his shot is just off the goal.
51' Freekick to Mumbai in a very dangerous position and Forlan steps up to take it..
50' Kerala Blasters are just not able to find their feet tonight. Too many fouls and their end product has been zero.
46' German goes down injured and it doesn't look like he'll be playing again tonight.
Sorry for the lack of updates, we faced some technical issue.
5' It's an absolute beauty by Forlan to put Mumbai City ahead. Chhetri with a beautiful ball to put the former Manchester United man through on goal and he makes to mistake is burying it first time. Mumbai City 1-0 Kerala Blasters
2' KADIOOOOOO!!! The Kerala Blasters man has a shot from 20 yards out and it's whiskers away from the post.
