Matchweek 10 of the Indian Super League (ISL) showcased remarkable defensive stability and commendable performances from players in the backline. In the seven matches played during Matchweek 10, only 11 goals were scored, with seven teams securing clean sheets, including the Islanders keeping clean sheets in both of their matches in the past week. Despite Mumbai City FC having a double-header, it's surprisingly the defenders and goalkeeper who amassed the maximum points, outshining the attacking players.

Now, without further ado, let’s take a closer look at the standout performers who garnered the highest points in the recently concluded Matchweek.

Mourtada Fall (Odisha FC) – 12 points

The Senegalese defender made his return to the league with a bang after missing out on four matches. The centre-back not only helped his team keep a clean sheet against Hyderabad FC but also added another goal to his name. Many fantasy managers held onto him in their team, despite Fall missing a few matches for Odisha FC. Those who waited were surely rewarded as he racked up a total of 12 points in Matchweek 10.

Rahul Bheke (Mumbai City FC) – 12 Points

The Mumbai City FC captain assumes a pivotal role in the defence, demonstrating steadfastness in organizing the backline, particularly complemented by Akash Mishra's dynamic overlapping runs from the opposite flank. Bheke played the entire duration for the Islanders, earning clean sheet points in both encounters, culminating in a Matchweek 10 total of 12 points.

Phurba Lachenpa (Mumbai City FC) – 12 Points

Similar to his captain, Lachenpa also played the full 180 minutes in Matchweek 10 and secured clean sheets against FC Goa and East Bengal FC. Despite being owned by only 7% of fantasy managers, Lachenpa could find a spot in new teams, especially with the goalkeeper now maintaining three consecutive clean sheets.

Akash Mishra (Mumbai City FC) – 12 Points

The full-back is progressively finding his momentum within the Mumbai City FC squad, steadily accruing points in the fantasy league. After an outstanding 15-point performance in Matchweek 9, Mishra has continued his scoring streak. The left-back played a pivotal role in defence, playing a key part in his team securing clean sheets in both matches over the past week.

Mehtab Singh (Mumbai City FC) – 12 Points

Another Mumbai City FC defender making the top-scoring list in Matchweek 10 is Mehtab Singh. Singh formed a formidable partnership with Rostyn Griffiths against FC Goa and with Tiri in the subsequent match against East Bengal FC. The centre-back displayed his defensive prowess, playing a crucial role in helping his team secure clean sheets in both matches. Despite being subbed off early in the 64th minute against his former club East Bengal FC, he ensured his clean sheet points before coming off.
