Kerala Blasters FC did their business as they trounced table toppers FC Pune City 2-0 in the Hero Indian Super League on their home turf on Wednesday. Terry Phelan's first game as Kerala coach saw the hosts score once in each half to provide glimpses of why they were finalists in the first edition of the League with goals off the boots of Christopher Dagnall and Sanchez Watt.The result did not hamper the top position of David Platt and Company as they still held on to the top spot but only on goal difference, but must have boosted the morale of the hosts Kerala Blasters who dominated the 90 minutes against an in-form team.Below are five talking points of the match

#1 Pune City\'s woeful defensive display

The Pune defence was all over the place. If it wasntfor Roger Johnson and their keeperSteve Simonsen, it could have well turned out to be a cricket score,as the Kerala Blasters wereall over the table toppers from the word go in this encounter.

The first half was a non-stopattacking onslaught from the Kerala side as they bombarded the Punes box with chance after chance.It could have turned into a perfect platform for the home side to claim revengewho were beaten 1-2 in their away match earlier in the season. It wasthe brilliance of defender Johnson who held the fort for Platt and Company from what could have been a thrashing.
