Fisto's Fantasy 11 Team and tips
Amrinder Singh (MCFC): Normally we take the goal keeper of the team that looks weaker on paper as the stronger team has more chances to take shots on target. But with ATK Mohun Bagan and Mumbai City FC, it's different. As their defense look rock solid, opponent teams are tending to take a lot of shots outside the box which is easily dealt by the goal keeper of both these teams.
Mourtada Fall (MCFC): You can't miss him in any fantasy 11 Team. The defender with most goals in ISL history. Tall and strong, he is like a rock at Mumbai City backline.
Stephen Eze (JFC): Another Defender who has impressed in this year's ISL. Although his decision making while defending has been questioned by many, His physicality makes him a Big threat in set-pieces.
Peter Hartley (JFC): The captain of Jamshedpur FC and is no doubt the best defender of their team so far. He and Eze are the set-piece target for their team.
Hugo Boumous (MCFC): The player with most assist in the ISL history. He creates a lot and scores a lot. Already has 3 Assists to his name this year.
Ahmed Jahouh (MCFC): He is the most important player of the Mumbai City side. He is the player with most tackles and Interceptions in ISL history. He also takes some wild shots once in a while.
Jackichand Singh (JFC): He is a creator winger for Jamshedpur FC who can deliver some amazing crosses into the box. With Dinliana suspended, JFC will rely on Jacki for delivering some amazing crosses.
Hernan Santana (MCFC): He is technically a centre back, but his name is listed as a midfielder in fantasy app. He is intimidating at the back and has scored 2 goals from the set pieces so far.
