Matchweek 10 of the Indian Super League (ISL) 2023-24 was one of the longer weeks with seven engaging battles keeping us entertained throughout. It was a very competitive week with its only red card being brandished to NorthEast United FC when their defender Tondonba Singh, who was already on a yellow card, conceded a second yellow for a reckless tackle on Mohun Bagan Super Giant forward Kiyan Nassiri, when the two teams locked horns.

Out of the eleven goals scored in Matchweek 10, only six teams scored the goals while Mumbai City FC remained goalless even though they had two matches this week. Both the matches played by the Islanders were the only two draws that we witnessed this week.

With the matchweek 11 already on its way, we've selected the best eleven players from Matchweek 10, with a 5-3-2 formation.


Phurba Lachenpa (Mumbai City FC)

Lachenpa has shown an impressive run in the league since the Islanders returned from their AFC Champions League campaign. Securing three clean sheets in as many matches since then, the goalkeeper from Sikkim has shown brilliance between the posts. In matchweek 10, Mumbai City FC played two crucial fixtures, against FC Goa and East Bengal FC, having succeeded in keeping a clean sheet in both the matches, owing to the resilient goalkeeping of Lachenpa.



Amey Ranawade (Odisha FC)

Assisting Roy Krishna in scoring Odisha FC’s winner against Hyderabad FC, Ranawade made a name for himself. With his movements, creating space for himself and his teammates, Ranawade has been highly influential in Odisha FC’s attacks, even though he is a defender. His excellent passing accuracy had allowed Krishna to take the lead for the Kalinga Warriors from a close-range finish. Establishing himself as a reliable starter for a star-studded team, the 25-year-old has made his mark in the ISL.


Mourtada Fall (Odisha FC)

Fall has been a clutch scorer for the Kalinga Warriors this season. Unsurprisingly, the defender scored again in their Matchweek 10 fixture against Hyderabad FC. With a strong header off a Carlos Delgado headed cross, the Senegalese center-back bagged his third goal of the season in only five appearances, while also helping his team keep a clean sheet.


Hijazi Maher (East Bengal FC) 

The Jordanian center-back earned himself the Player of the Match award when the Red and Gold Brigade held an in-from Mumbai City FC to a 0-0 draw in Matchweek 10 of the ISL this season. His dominance in the East Bengal FC half helped his team secure their fourth clean sheet of the season.


Subhasish Bose (Mohun Bagan SG)

When it comes to creating an impact in the opposition’s half, as a defender, the one person whose name pops up after Fall is Mohun Bagan SG captain, Subhasish Bose. Bose has led his team to their best-ever start in the ISL. The Indian international can always be seen wandering around the opposition’s box, searching for an opening. His search came to fruition when Bose bagged his first goal of the season in Mohun Bagan SG’s 3-1 win over NorthEast United FC in Matchweek 10. Making his presence known in both halves from the centerline, Bose’s work-rate is truly praiseworthy.


Naocha Singh (Kerala Blasters FC)

The Manipuri left-back has been remarkable for the Blasters. His perfectly executed and well-timed tackles led his team to a clean sheet when Kerala Blasters FC scraped past a strong Punjab FC with a 1-0 scoreline. With 24 successful tackles in only seven games thus far, Singh has shown reliability in the backline for his team.




Ahmed Jahouh (Odisha FC)

A constant threat in the Odisha FC midfield, Jahouh's attacking movements seem to always lead his team to the opposition’s box. Although the Moroccan midfielder didn’t manage to score or assist this week, his presence as the pivot of his team was crucial in their 3-0 win over Hyderabad FC.


Rafael Crivellaro (Chennaiyin FC)

The Chennaiyin FC midfield maestro opened the scoring against Bengaluru FC in their 2-0 win over the Blues in Matchweek 10. Converting from the spot, the Brazilian scored his third goal of the season. With five assists to accompany, Crivellaro has been a constant threat to the opposition throughout the season. 


Mohammed Aimen (Kerala Blasters FC)

With no goals so far, Aimen has still managed to grab the spotlight with his excellent footwork and pace. Running up and down the wings, Aimen was instrumental in Kerala Blasters FC’s 1-0 win over Punjab FC in Matchweek 10. His creativity helps his team create a lot of space that the Blasters then look forward to exploiting.



Roy Krishna (Odisha FC) -  Captain

The Fijian international has been a threat in the opposition’s box since his first season in the ISL. His knack for scoring goals and penetrating through the opposition’s defence has made him one of the most impactful strikers in the ISL. Bagging himself a brace, Krishna helped his team secure a 3-0 win against Hyderabad FC in Matchweek 10.


Javi Hernandez (Bengaluru FC)

Combining both Bengaluru FC’s matches in Matchweek 10, Hernandez was the only scorer for the Blues. Converting a penalty, the Spaniard scored the winner in Bengaluru FC’s second win of the season, helping them start a new era under their new boss, Gerard Zaragoza.
