East Bengal made it three straight losses when losing 2-0 to NorthEast United on Saturday and they remain in search of an elusive first goal.

Without defender Danny Fox, Robbie Fowler went to a back three against NorthEast United. Will he keep faith with the new formation?

Fox is a doubt with injury, while forward Aaron-Amadi Holloway has yet to make an appearance this season.

Owen Coyle's side lost their opening game of the season 2-1 to Chennaiyin before successive draws against Odisha (2-2) and Hyderabad (1-1). Valskis scored twice against Odisha, while Stephen Eze earned the point against Hyderabad.

Jamshedpur became the first side to defeat defending champions ATK Mohun Bagan this season with a 2-1 victory on Monday.

Nerijus Valskis scored both goals in the win to take his tally to five goals in four games this season. 

Jamshedpur Team News


Lithuanian forward Nerijus Valskis is the key man for Jamshedpur having scored five goals in four games this season.
