With another Gameweek, full of late dramas, goals and heroes, coming to a conclusion, let’s have a look at some of the top performers from this round of matches, based on individual player ratings from their respective matches.
Kamaljit Singh (Hyderabad FC)
Although the Hyderabad custodian conceded an early goal against Bengaluru FC, Kamaljit was solid for most of the match, making five saves. His solid showing kept Hyderabad in the game and allowed Robin Singh to equalise late in the match and secure a point for his team.
Pratik Chaudhari (Mumbai City FC)
Pratik scored his first ever Hero ISL goal against ATK to bring Mumbai City FC back into the contest after ATK drew first blood. He also made 12 clearances and had a passing accuracy of 89% against the two-time champions.

Tiri (Jamshedpur FC)
Tiri may have been disappointed after conceding a last-gasp equaliser against NorthEast United FC but he enjoyed a typically assured outing at the back from an individual standpoint. The Spanish centre-back finished with a passing accuracy of 88% and made 10 clearances as well as five interceptions.
Matthew Kilgallon (Hyderabad FC)
Kilgallon was solid at the back for his team, making 10 clearances and not allowing an attacking Bengaluru side to run away with the game after going ahead early against Hyderabad.

Xisco Hernandez (Odisha FC)
The Spanish midfielder put in another great shift for Odisha FC, scoring the equaliser just three minutes after Chennaiyin opened the scoring.

Cidoncha scored the fastest goal of the season yet, after putting his side ahead against FC Goa minutes after the kick off. The midfielder had more touches and passes than any other Kerala player in the match against Goa.
