CFC vs NEUFC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Chennaiyin FC welcome NorthEast United to Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium for their third ISL match of the season on Thursday night.
After losing their opening two games, the hosts will be aiming to earn their first point of the season against the visitors. This sure is a worst possible start to defend the title and in a league of 10 teams and 18 games in a regular season, the six points gap at any stage could prove to be too big to recover.
But what may worry John Gregory more is the performance of his team so far. In the first two matches, the team looked a bit short on the intensity and the tame efforts in the middle of the park looked a shadow image of the team which thrived on the link-up play between its midfield and forward line last season.
The Highlanders must be brimming with confidence after winning away against ATK last time around. It was a huge result for them and could give them the needed impetus for the rest of the season.
Last season’s problem already look a thing of the past for North East United. In 2017-18, not only the Highlanders scored the fewest goals, but their goal-difference was the worst in ISL.
However, after playing a thrilling 2-2 draw at home and a 0-1 win against the mighty ATK in the very next match, the team looks well-equipped in attack as well as in defence to sustain a challenge for a top-4 finish this season.

CFC vs NEUFC Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injuries and Suspensions
Chennaiyin FC vs NorthEast United Team News:
Chennaiyin FC: Chennai are misfiring at the moment and we may see some big changes in the side. Indian international Jeje Lalpekhlua looks a bit rusty at the moment but it’s unlikely that he is axed by head coach John Gregory for this particular match.
The trio of Fernandes, Augusto and Nelson is expected to be retained as well while it’s the deep-lying midfield and the back-line where we could see some changes made for this match.
Meanwhile, the Two-times ISL Champions are certainly looking for the future as they have shipped out seven young players to the I League clubs. While five of them are on loan at the AIFF’s developmental side Indian Arrows, Mohammedan Sporting and Gokulam Kerala FC. The players are; Prosenjit Chakraborty, Samik Mitra, Aimol Chongompipa Reamsochung, Baoringdao Bodo, Abhijit Sarkar, Rahim Ali and Deepak Tangri. These players are certainly not going to play.
NorthEast United: The visitors don’t have any issues in this department. After two good results. Head coach Eelco Schattorie may not tweak with his side for this match. In particular, Rowlin Borges, Federico Gallego and Bartholomew Ogbeche should be untouchable after putting in remarkable performance so far.
