Hello and Welcome to Sportskeeda's LIVE coverage of the Calcutta Football League 2018 clash between 39 times champions East Bengal and new entrants West Bengal Police.

15:47 (IST)6 AUG 2018

East Bengal still await their first points on board and will be looking to notch up the same when they go head to head with new entrants West Bengal Police in the Calcutta Football League 2018 on Monday at the East Bengal Ground.

Lalrozama Fanai is expected to miss the encounter as he sustained an injury in the tie against Tollygunge Agragami. Club Captain Samad Ali Mallick is deemed to replace the Mizo defender at the back. Joby Justin and Al-Amna will be on the bench as expected due to other reasons.

West Bengal Police will be a surprise package this year as almost no club has played with the departmental side in the recent past. Scouts will keep an eye on the local talent the West Bengal squad will put on show today.

An 88% of Cloud Cover over the maidan could again play spoilsport if it rains continuously in the first half.
