This year had two decent match-ups on paper to get the season going -- a rematch of the 2016 final between Kerala and ATK but with a pronounced...

GK - Amrinder Singh - Mumbai City FC

Matches: 6 | Clean sheets: 5

Amrinder came into the tournament late after his AFC Cup exploits with Bengaluru FC, but once he became Mumbai's first choice, he kept five clean sheets out of the six games that he played. With a miserly...
