The Nigerian is in top-form right now. Though he took time to settle down in East Bengal but now he is firing on all cylinders. On Saturday, Chidi will be the man East Bengal will look forward to. He has the swagger of a champion and it will be a surprise if he doesn’t find his name on the scoresheet.
Harmanjyot Singh Khabra
Trevor James Morgan’s answer to Syed Rahim Nabi, Khabra scored the all-important goal on that manic December 9 Derby. He is expected to play as right back and his battle with the Nabi-Snehasish Chakraborty combination will be interesting. Will definitely play a key role on Saturday.
The goal machine will be hoping to put one against East Bengal on Saturday. He has bailed out Bagan many a times and Saturday could be the day for Odafe. The East Bengal defence will have to work overtime to keep the Bagan captain and his partner-in-crime Tolgay Ozebe at bay.
Syed Rahim Nabi
The man for all positions, Nabi has not played only as a goalkeeper! Nabi is the quintessential been-there-done-that man. On Saturday, Nabi will be on the left flank making those runs and sneaking in from the blindside to rattle the East Bengal defence.
