ISL 2020-21: Gerard Nus' NorthEast United put up inspired performance to spoil start of Mumbai City's mega project
Ahmed Jahouh's sending off gave a helping hand to NorthEast United in their win over Mumbai City but Gerard Nus' side also impressed with its tactical versatility, disciplined football, and a fearless attitude.
A red card to Jahouh and a penalty turned the game, that Mumbai were otherwise dominating, on its head and handed NorthEast United FC a winning start
With Mohun Bagan joining ATK and entry of East Bengal, ISL 2020-21 will be the first season with the biggies from Kolkata. 11 teams will vie for the title when the season begins on 20 November.
A new season brings new hope. Under Spaniard Gerard Nus, NorthEast United FC will aim to find some consistency after a difficult last season.
