The stalemate saw some below-par play on the field, especially from the away team.

NorthEast United and Kerala Blasters played out a 0-0 draw at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati. The draw wasn’t a good result for either of the teams, as both are out of the race for the playoffs. Here are the Indian player ratings from NorthEast United Vs Kerala Blasters:

NorthEast United

Subhasish Roy Chowdhury- 7.0

Although, he didn’t have the most eventful of nights, the NorthEast goalkeeper made some spectacular saves when called upon, including a brilliant one from a Holicharan Narzary shot in the 60th minute.

Provat Lakra-  5.5

Even though the midfielder started the match, he picked up a knock early in the first half and was substituted off in the 24th minute. He had very little time to make an impact on the match.

Rakesh Pradhan- 7.0

The NorthEast United left-back put in a proper shift, keeping Seityasen at bay defensively, while going forward to support his winger with any chance he got.

Lalengmawia- 7.0

The only positive from a rather pedestrian midfield display. Lalengmawia looked in control every time he was given the ball and it looked like every NorthEast United attack went through him.

Milan Singh- 6.0

Didn’t have the best of nights. Playing in midfield, he hardly had any say in the chances created.

Ninthoinganba Meetei- 6.0

Another Indian youngster from NorthEast United who had a night to forget. Playing on the right wing, the young No. 7 didn’t seem to be in the game for most of the match.


Wayne Vaz- 6.5

Came on in place of Lakra in the middle of the first half and put in a neat enough display. He was given the task of marking Narzary which provided him little chance of going forward.

Nikhil Kadam- 6.5

Came on at half-time and started very lively. Kadam had the best chance of the match, but shot directly at the Kerala Blasters goalkeeper.

Kerala Blasters

Bilal Khan- 6.5

The Kerala Blasters goalkeeper had very little to do in the whole match, but did his job perfectly when called upon which includes a brilliant save from a Kadam shot.

Lalruatthara- 6.5

The defender put in a proper shift to keep the NorthEast attack at bay especially Simon Lundevall in the first half.

Jessel Carneiro- 6.5

Jessel had an eventful night and never missed a single chance to go forward. He also put in some good deliveries from the set-pieces he took.

Seityasen Singh- 5.0

Another one of the Indian players who had a night to forget. Seityasen created no chance throughout the whole match and had a hard time getting past Rakesh Pradhan.

Halicharan Narzary- 7.0

Easily the best Indian player on the pitch. Always had space on the left wing and created the most chances for Kerala Blasters.

Sahal Abdul Samad- 5.5

Another disappointing match for this very talented Indian midfielder. Did have many touches of the ball, but could do very little with it.


Rahul Praveen- N/A

Came on in place of Seityasen Singh and had very little time to impact the game.

Mohammed Rafi- N/A

Came on in place of Sahal and he too didn’t have any time to make a proper impact.
