Team News

Federico Gallego's return to the NorthEast set-up will provide a huge boost for Khalid Jamil's side. The 31-year-old midfielder has registered 9 goals and 12 assists in 46 games for the team so far.

NorthEast will definitely miss Deshorn Brown, who went off injured in the second half against Kerala Blasters, and Mathias Coureur will have his work cut out for him in front of goal on Monday evening.

The two-time ISL champions, Chennaiyin, are yet to start new signing Lukasz Gikiwicz, who might get a chance this time around after Rahim Ali failed to impress last time out.
