Indian Super League 2020-21 begins on November 20 with Kerala Blasters taking on ISL debutant ATK Mohn Bagan in the opening day clash. The ISL will be an 11-team league from this edition with SC East Bengal and ATK Mohun Bagan joining the band. Teams will hope to not only finish within the final four but will fight for the top place.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Marcus Rashford was feeling pain in his knee which has raised doubts over his availability for the clash against bottom side Sheffield United in the Premier League. The Englishman was seen struggling on the field before being replaced by Anthony Martial in the final minutes of the Liverpool clash.
It is understood that Thomas Tuchel will sign an 18-month contract with the Blues and is currently traveling to London to complete the paperwork. The decision to make the change at the managerial level comes with Chelsea currently in ninth place in the Premier League table, failing to live up to the expectations after the summer transfer spree.
Lionel Messi missed the games against Cornella and Elche after receiving a red card in the Super Cup final but is now eligible to play again and has been named in the 20-man squad for the trip to Rayo later in the week for the Copa del Rey clash. The Catalan giants defeated local rivals Cornella in the previous round.
There was a further altercation in the tunnel and the league's sporting judge report states that Conte confronted Maresca "in a threatening manner, shouting a seriously offensive expression at him." Conte, who has also been fined 20,000 euros ($24,000), will miss upcoming league matches against Benevento and Fiorentina.
During his player career, Dora represented Tollygunge Agragami, Calcutta Port Trust, Mohammedan Sporting, Mohun Bagan and East Bengal. He was also the goalkeeper when Bengal lifted back-to-back Santosh Trophy titles. For India, he made five appearances in competitions such as SAFF Cup and SAF Games.
The first meeting between the two teams this season ended in newcomers ATK Mohun Bagan recording a 2-0 win courtesy of a Roy Krishna strike and an own goal from Benjamin Lambot. The Highlanders are looking to close the gap between them and the top four while the Kolkata side are looking to catch up with leaders Mumbai City FC.
A win will once again take City back on top of the league table and one point clear of city rivals United. They are currently on a 10-match winning run across all competitions and will want to extend on that run. Sam Allardyce’s men beat Wolves 2-1 ending an eight-match winless run. But once again slumped to a defeat against West Ham.
The two teams met last week and it was the Cherries who came out on top as they defeated the Gunners in the fourth round of the FA Cup. Their earlier meeting in the league ended in a 1-1 draw. Both teams have European ambitions and will be hoping to get closer to that objective.
PSG have offered Sergio Ramos a three-year deal as the central defender is inching closer towards a Real Madrid exit in the summer. The Parisian giants are willing to offer the Spaniard a contract worth €15 million (£13m/$18m) per season, which the Spanish capital side won’t be matching.
NorthEast United FC are sixth in the standings with only 15 points from 12 matches. They have won only thrice this ISL season and have drawn six of their 12 games. They were beaten 0-2 by ATK Mohun Bagan in the previous meeting between both these sides earlier this season.
ATK Mohun Bagan are placed second in the points table with 24 points from 12 matches. They are six far from table leaders Mumbai City FC who have played a match more. NorthEast United, on the other, are sixth in the standings with 15 points from 12 matches. They have won only three matches this season and are still three points far from top four.
