ATK Mohun Bagan FC key players

Roy Krishna: Roy Krishna was tied with Golden Boot winner Nerijus Valskis in the 2019-20 season for the most number of goals scored. The Fijian forward netted 15 goals in 21 games, in addition to providing six assists.

Krishna’s incredible goalscoring ratio was one of the prime reasons behind ATK’s 2019-20 title-winning run. He is extremely quick to pounce on loose balls, wriggle past defenders and score. His striking prowess will again be pivotal for ATK Mohun Bagan in the 2020-21 Indian Super League campaign.

David Williams: Roy Krishna’s strike partner, Australian forward David Williams will be key to ATK Mohun Bagan’s chances in the ISL 2020-21 as well. Williams scored seven goals and provided five assists in 18 ISL games.

He generally acts as a secondary striker or a typical false number nine to create an illusion of a two-striker formation. Williams can also play out wide, thus adding to his versatility.

Sandesh Jhingan: After an intense transfer battle with ISL’s biggest and richest clubs like Bengaluru FC, FC Goa, Mumbai City FC, SC East Bengal and Odisha FC, the former Kerala Blasters defenders finally signed for ATK Mohun Bagan after months of deliberation.

Sandesh Jhingan will partner Jose Luis Espinosa Arroyo, also known as Tiri in central defence. He will face a unique challenge at ATK Mohun Bagan due to Antonio Habas’ conventional three-man defence. His aerial abilities can be useful in set-piece situations.

ATK Mohun Bagan FC probable line-up

(3-5-2): Arindam Bhattacharya, Tiri, Sandesh Jhingan, Pritam Kotal, Pronay Haldar, Edu Garcia, Javi Hernandez, Michael Soosairaj, Prabir Das, Roy Krishna, David Williams
