ISL 2021-22: Top five players to watch out for in the clash between ATK Mohun Bagan and Chennaiyin FC: ATK Mohun Bagan will be desperate to return to winning ways after two consecutive defeats in the Indian Super League. But Antonio Habas’ men are up against the only unbeaten team in the league this season, Chennaiyin FC. Although they might not have played the best brand of football, they have managed to grind out results. Follow all the Live Updates of ISL 2021-22 only on InsideSport.IN

The Marina Machans have been resolute defensively this season. While they have only scored three goals, they have conceded only one that has majorly helped their cause. However, Bozidar Bandovic will hope that his men get their shooting boots on as they will be looking to get back in the playoffs spots.

Therefore, there are some of the players you need to fixate your eyes on while watching the game.

Manvir Singh

It is fascinating to see how much he has improved as a player over the last few years. Manvir Singh has always been known for his relentless hard work and tenacity as a player. He adds great value to this ATK Mohun Bagan and is one of the pivotal players for Antonio Habas along with the likes of Roy Krishna and Hugo Boumous. Manvir scored in the all-important Kolkata Derby against arch-rivals SC East Bengal has put in a decent shift for the Mariners.

Anirudh Thapa

Considered as one of India’s most talented players, Anirudh Thapa has been pivotal to Bandovic’s plans this season. He has taken over extra responsibilities due to Rafael Crivellaro’s absence and has been a metronome for the Marina Machans. Thapa scored the winning goal for Chennaiyin against Northeast United and has been one of their best players in the current campaign. A lot will depend on him in this game as well as they lock horns against the Mariners.

Hugo Boumous

Hugo Boumous was paid big bucks for his ability to change the game. He was exceptional for FC Goa under the tutelage of Sergio Lobera and followed the Spaniard to Mumbai City FC and won the Indian double with the Islanders last season. The French midfielder started his ATK Mohun Bagan decently by scoring a couple of goals in th AFC Cup. Even in the ISL curtain-raiser against Kerala Blasters, Boumous scored a brace and made a huge impact.

However, the Frenchman has not been consistent. He has been a shadow of himself in the last couple of matches. Therefore he will be looking to make a big impact and help the Mariners get back to the playoffs spots with a win against Chennaiyin.

Lallianzuala Chhangte

Just like Anirudh Thapa, Lallianzuala Chhangte is a also a stalwart for the Marina Machans. The young winger is one of the brightest talents in Indian football and have been a major driving force for Bandovic this season in attack. He scored an absolute stunner against NorthEast United and has been pretty good with his work rate aswell, something that Bandovic demands from his wingers.

Roy Krishna

ATK Mohun Bagan’s Fijian talisman has simply looked a shadow of himself in this campaign. Krishna stepped up in the first two matches but have not been great in the last two. Therefore he will be hoping to bounce back pretty soon as the Mariners depend a lot on him. The Fijian’s movement and fluidity have not been the same as last season and there are questions on his fitness. However, ATK Mohun Bagan fans will hope that the 32-year-old will turn this season around for their favourite club.
