W2W4: ISL resumes with Maharashtra derby, Kochi party

Pune have been unbeaten in Mumbai since 2014

The Indian Super League (ISL) will resume on Wednesday after an international break, and the first nine matches have already produced their share of upsets and breakout performances at either end of the points table. 

What are the things to watch for when Delhi Dynamos host ATK to kick-start the next phase of matches?
