But, substitute Raynier Fernandes scored the winner in the 56th minute to take Mumbai level on points with the Men of Steel in fourth place in the Indian Super League table.

Here are the Indian player ratings from the game:
Subrata Paul– 5.0
Subrata could’ve done better to stop Machado’s powerful free-kick. Unfortunately, he was beaten at his near post. Couldn’t really have done much about Raynier’s strike though. Made a few routine saves, but apart from that, a pretty uneventful performance from the veteran.
Robin Gurung- 6.0
The right-back was quite menacing with his forward runs, causing Subhasish problems with his electric movement. But, defensively, he was a bit wobbly, conceding the free-kick which led to the opener. However, he got better with seven clearances and a couple of interceptions. But, his seven attempted crosses weren’t as accurate as they needed to be.
Narender Gahlot- 6.5
Narender adapted well to his wide role, sniffing out danger and averting it with confidence. Moreover, plunging himself at the near post, he troubled Subrata leading to the opener. Restricted Mumbai’s flow through his side, making six clearances and was confident with his distribution as well. Put in a few looping crosses in the later stages, only to see them account for nothing.
Isaac Vanmalsawma- 5.0
Isaac was getting overrun at times in the middle. He did put in some crucial blocks and marshalled his side forward, but lacked the creative edge. Saw a few swipes at goal go off target and his crosses didn’t meet their mark either.
Sumeet Passi- 5.0
Passi barely got involved in churning out chances, being unable to link-up with his teammates properly. Being involved in a nasty clash of heads with Chermiti and getting booked, were the two moments he was properly noticed in a quiet showing.
Farukh Choudhary- 6.0
Farukh took time to get into the groove, but almost scored around the half hour mark, after his left-footed attempt scraped wide following an excellent run. He looked Jamshedpur’s most menacing figure with his tricky movement inside the area, but just didn’t get enough service to make a mark.
CK Vineeth- 5.5
Vineeth was quite lively down the left side, troubling defenders with his blazing movement. But, his final product was frustrating, scuffing some chances and being too selfish on occasions. Had a powerful strike saved around the hour mark.
Aniket Jadhav- 5.5
Aniket tried very hard to create things in attack, but failed to establish his authority in the final third. Barely got a sniff at goal and couldn’t make the impact he wanted.
Mobashir Rahman- N/A
Mobashir was barely able to influence any change in the result, acting as a passenger who got lost in the intensity of the game.
Mumbai City FC
Amrinder Singh- 6.5
Amrinder made a few solid saves to frustrate the hosts, but couldn’t do anything about Tiri’s emphatic header. Pulled off an instinctive save in the 62nd minute to deny Vineeth. He looked composed with his collections, making sure his team get the three points with sensible grabs.
Sarthak Golui- 7.5
The right-back was put under severe pressure, but admirably held his ground against the trouble. Golui made an incredible 12 clearances and four interceptions, being able to keep Vineeth from getting a clear eye at goal and thwarting whatever the hosts attempted through his side. Looked confident in a more natural role.
Pratik Chaudhari- 7.0
The towering centre-back cut a composed figure in defence, ushering out trouble with his calming presence. He made six clearances, three interceptions and five blocks to help Mumbai City survive the Jamshedpur onslaught. Dealt pretty well with keeping Farukh quiet as well.
Subhasish Bose- 7.0
Bose has picked up form recently and continued his formidable defensive work at the Furnace. Almost invited trouble at times with his reckless challenges, but recovered well to keep Jamshedpur contained. He made 13 clearances, two blocks and three interceptions in a very sturdy defensive performance.
Rowllin Borges- 6.5
Rowllin put in a hard-working shift in midfield. He provided stellar backup for his backline, sitting just ahead of them and making five clearances and four interceptions. His distribution was pretty decent, but the midfielder’s vulnerabilities were exposed when Tiri out-jumped him for his goal.
Bipin Singh- 5.0
Bipin wasted an easy chance to score early on, scuffing a shot straight at Subrata. He carried the ball forward dangerously at times, but couldn’t create anything substantial. Was substituted at half-time.
Raynier Fernandes- 7.0
Raynier amped up the energy levels after coming on. Scored a beautiful strike, curling the ball in from just outside the area. Helped the transition from defence to attack and fuelled Mumbai City’s fire with his persistence.
Sourav Das- N/A
The former Mohun Bagan man made his debut for the Islanders, helping see through the three points for his team.
