Igor Angulo - FC Goa
Igor Angulo has proven himself as a worthy replacement for Ferran Corominas at FC Goa. The Spanish striker has three goals in three games for Goa so far, scoring twice to win a point for his side against Bengaluru FC before scoring once more against NorthEast United FC to ensure Juan Ferrando’s men shared the points with the Highlanders.
Anirudh Thapa - Chennaiyin FC
Chennaiyin FC have begun their season on a strong note, with one win and one draw, and Anirudh Thapa has been ever-present in the middle of the park for the Marina Machans in these games. Thapa scored in the first minute itself against Jamshedpur FC in their opening match of Hero ISL 2020-21 before helping his side to a goalless draw against Kerala Blasters FC.
Diego Mauricio - Odisha FC
Diego Mauricio made his debut for Odisha FC against Hyderabad FC and was a constant threat even though Hyderabad came out on top. The Brazilian forward, however, played the super-sub role to perfection when we he came on against Jamshedpur FC and scored two crucial goals to earn a point for his side.
