The most exhilarating part of football matches is the scoring of goals and the build-up behind it. With a new season already underway, clubs will be looking to have a successful new season. Let us have a look at our pick of the 3 best-attacking trios in the ISL 2019.
The defending champions will be looking to have a similar season in the league this year as well. Miku was their stand-out performer the previous season, and to emulate a similar result without him will certainly be difficult. In response to the situation at hand, the club managed to get the services of Manuel Onwu during the transfer window.
Along with the Spanish forward, Sunil Chettri and Udanta Singh will be responsible for finding the back of the net this season. Chettri is India’s record goal-scorer and will be looking to have another stellar season. Udanta Singh will also be striving to score more goals and provide some in the upcoming days. Both the Indian forwards will have the international break in mind as well. If both of them hit prime form before the break, the national side would reap the benefits in the International qualifier.
