Precision and defensive resilience stand as pivotal aspects in football. Triumphing teams must exhibit clinical proficiency in front of goal to secure victories and, ultimately, titles. However, this success does not permit complacency, particularly in the defensive third of the pitch. Teams must consistently uphold defensive solidity, minimising the risk of conceding goals.

In the Indian Super League (ISL) this year, certain teams have excelled in these crucial aspects, outshining others that have fallen short in these categories.

With this context in mind, we assess and rank the teams based on the most goals scored, most clean sheets, most points earned, and most wins achieved so far in 2023.
