Another duo who were excellent up front this season were Igor Angulo and Jorge Ortiz, with the Spaniards contributing 20 goals between themselves in the recently concluded season. They were unlucky not to see FC Goa reach the finals and it will be interesting to see whether they can continue in the same vein next season.

3. Adam Le Fondre, Bartholomew Ogbeche (Mumbai City FC) – 19 goals

Adam Le Fondre and Bartholomew Ogbeche contributed 19 goals as Mumbai City FC won their maiden ISL title, with Le Fondre scoring 11 and
Ogbeche netting 8 in their run to the trophy. Mumbai have greatly benefitted from being bought by Manchester City – who will look to ensure that they become heavyweights in the Indian football sphere.

4. Sunil Chhetri, Cleiton Silva (Bengaluru FC) – 15 goals

Bengaluru FC did not have the best of times on the pitch in the recently concluded ISL season, but did see arguably two of their best players in Sunil Chhetri and Cleiton Silva show that they still have it in them at the highest level. With 15 goals between them, the duo will look to put a disappointing season behind them and start anew come 2021/22.
