The performances of the 26 players in the Gameweek 17 & 18 of ISL.

Vikram Partap Singh – 7

In the past two weeks, in the three matches played, Vikram sustained his performance, despite encountering a slight lack of momentum in the second match against Punjab. However, he exhibited improvement in the subsequent match against Jamshedpur. Additionally, he successfully scored a goal and provided an assist in the course of these three games.
