Cleiton Silva and Naorem Mahesh SIngh are formerly leading the maps for utmost pretensions and assists, independently. East Bengal FC moved to eighth in the points table. Jamshedpur FC stayed 10th in the points table.
Cleiton Silva and Naorem Mahesh Singh set a new Hero ISL record
Naorem Mahesh Singh of East Bengal FC and Redeem Tlang of FC Goa in action during match 6 of the idol INDIAN SUPER LEAGUE 2022 played between East Bengal FC & FC Goa at the VYBK Stadium, Kolkata, on 12th October 2022.
All three East Bengal FC pretensions were supported by Naorem Singh, the alternate and third in particular being tantalizing crosses between the defense and goalkeeper that that showed great vision. He came the first Indian player to register three assists in a single game.
His three assists made him the leading help provider in the league this season with five. The way he played inch-perfect passes into the box was a delight for everyone to watch. It’s rare to see similar quality balls being delivered into the box by an Indian winger.
The Brazilian continued his awful form for East Bengal this season. Cleiton scored a brace against Jamshedpur FC and led his side to their third palm of the season. Coming on the reverse of a 2- 4 loss against Odisha FC, East Bengal faced a Jamshedpur FC side low on confidence but playing at their home.
In a tricky contest, Cleiton showed his class with two pretensions, taking eight shots with three on target( including the two which led to pretensions). He’d the fourth loftiest number of traces by any East Bengal player on the night( 64). He completed 85 of his passes which is a awful rate for a forward. Cleiton also made one concurrence and inspired his side at every part of the pitch. He also combined really well with Naorem Mahesh Singh( who supported all three pretensions for East Bengal) to beget problems and discipline the creaky Jamshedpur FC defence.
Cleiton made it to the top spot among the thing- songwriters this season with five strikes to his name. Five pretensions among the 11 that East Bengal have scored this season have come from the 35- time-old. This shows his adding significance to Stephen Constantine’s side.
