Chennaiyin FC host Kerala Blasters in the Indian Super League on Friday. Having endured a rather poor start to the season Kerala Blasters seemed to have found their feet in their 1-0 win over NorthEast United in their previous match. Chennaiyin FC have won four and lost two of the six matches they have played and a win here can propel them to the top of the table. Chennaiyin, though, have shown signs of weakness at the back and will be wary of the likes of CK Vineeth, who had scored the winner for the Blasters against NorthEast United. Kerala’s poor goal difference means that, unless they win by a significant margin, their league position, for the moment, would see little change. Chennaiyin FC vs Kerala Blasters, Match highlights:
Kerala Blasters: Paul Rachubka (GK), Nemanja Lakic-Pesic, Wes Brown, Sandesh Jhingan (C), Rino Anto, Lalruatthara, Courage Pekuson, Siam Hanghal, CK Vineeth, Jackichand Singh, Mark Sifneos.
Chennaiyin FC: Karanjit Singh (GK), Henrique Sereno (C), Inigo Calderon, Jerry Lalrinzuala, Mailson Alves, Francisco Fernandes, Raphael Augusto, Anirudh Thapa, Bikramjit Singh, Jude Nworuh, Jeje Lalpekhlua.
