NEUFC vs CFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Deshorn Brown has been one of the standout players for NorthEast United FC since his move from Bengaluru FC during the January transfer window of ISL 2020-21. The 30-year-old Jamaican has netted nine goals in 29 ISL matches and also opened his account in the ongoing season against his former club Bengaluru. He is likely to trouble the Chennaiyin defence on Monday.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Chennaiyin FC captain Anirudh Thapa earned a crucial penalty against Hyderabad FC after he was fouled inside the box by Hitesh Sharma. The 23-year-old India international has been influential for the Marina Machans, scoring five goals and providing nine assists in 69 ISL matches so far. Thapa will once again play an important role for Chennaiyin in the midfield against NorthEast United.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Chennaiyin FC centre-back Slavko Damjanovic impressed in their ISL 2021-22 opener against Hyderabad FC. The left-footed Serbian defender has provided more solidity to the Chennaiyin backline and also showed good composure while in possession. He is likely to play a crucial role at the heart of the defence at Fatorda Stadium.
NorthEast United captain Subhasish Roy Chowdhury will be the preferred choice over Vishal Kaith of Chennaiyin FC for the goalkeeper spot. The 35-year-old NEUFC custodian made some important saves against Kerala Blasters FC and he is once again tipped to be the busier of the two goalkeepers on Monday.
NEUFC vs CFC probable playing XI
NEUFC playing XI (probable): Subhasish Roy Chowdhury (captain and goalkeeper), Provat Lakra, Hernán Santana, Patrick Flottmann, Gurjinder Kumar, Laldanmawia Ralte, Khassa Camara, Pragyan Gogoi, V.P. Suhair, Lalkhawpuimawia, Deshorn Brown
CFC playing XI (probable): Vishal Kaith (goalkeeper), Reagan Singh, Salam Ranjan Singh, Slavko Damjanovic, Narayan Das, Ariel Borysiuk, Lallianzuala Chhangte, Vladimir Koman, Anirudh Thapa (captain), Mirlan Murzaev, Rahim Ali
