ISL 2021-22, East Bengal Team Preview: Squad, Fixtures, Key Players, Strength, Weakness, Predictions

EB Strength:

The Kolkata side has been boosted by the addition of ISL Golden glove winner Arindam Bhattacharya in goal this season. Bhattacharya jumped shipped from arch rivals ATK Mohun Bagan. With the experienced Arindam manning the post the defence will be a big improvement for EB.

Furthermore, with Raju Gaikwad extending his stay and the India international Adil Khan in the ranks, the backling will be strengthened. Australian centre-back Tomislav Mrcela will marshal the troops at the back.

East Bengal have also bolstered their midfield, signing up Amarjit Singh Kiyam, who will be aptly supported by Jakichand Singh, Md Rafiue and Bikash Jairu. The attack will be led by Nigerian striker Daniel Chima Chukwu, with Balwant Singh and Antonio Perosevic lending support.

EB Weakness:

EB Weakness:

Though they have Arindam between the sticks, the backline will be one of the key areas of weakness for the Kolkata side, with most of the work falling on the shoulders of the foreign recruitments. While EB did add the experienced Adil Khan to their ranks, with a hoarde of new comers, coach Diaz will have his task cut out.

Furthermore, with a new coach at the helm and a mix of experienced and youth players, Diaz will have to quickly find his best playing XI.

EB Season Prediction

EB Season Prediction

Being one of the heavyweights of Indian football, the club carries a lot of expectations. The side has the assembled a squad with enough talent to make it a strong team. If Diaz can quickly work out the kinks and find his best playing XI, the club can surely better their dismal finish last season and finish in the top half of the table.
