KBFC vs JFC Dream11: Kerala Blasters host Jamshedpur FC in the Indian Super League at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (Kaloor Stadium), as the visitors look to go top of the table with a win. Blasters, meanwhile, will be targeting their first win since winning on opening day against ATK.
As mentioned above, the Blasters are without a win since their 2-1 win over table-topper ATK in the first game of the current season. That's six games without a win, with three of those matches ending in defeats. They are 8th on the points table but could move to 6th with a win in this game. Eelco Schattorie'smen drew the last two games.
Three wins, three draws and one defeat, that's how Jamshedpur have performed in the first seven games. Twelve points from seven games is a decent return, and looks even better considering the win in this game will propel the team to the first-place. That said, the visitors collected only five points from the last four games, and drew the last two matches.

Kerala Blasters team news: Kerala had coach Eelco Schattorie confirmed that Mario Arques returned to training this week and may be involved in this game. But he was also concerned about his game time and lack of match fitness, which suggests that this game may have come too soon for the 27-year-old Spanish central midfielder.
Considering Messi Bouli scored the only goal for Kerala in the last game, he may get the nod over Bartholomew Ogbeche in the attack.
