After three consecutive disappointing Indian Super League campaigns, Jamshedpur FC will be hoping their cards play right this season. Jamshedpur begin their ISL 2020-21 season against two-time champions Chennaiyin FC on November 24 (Tuesday). Since making their ISL debut in 2017-18, the best Jamshedpur FC have managed is a fifth-place finish in their first two seasons. They had a disastrous campaign last season and finished eighth after winning just four matches of the 18 they played. This season, however, Jamshedpur FC have made some good signings and in coach Owen Coyle have a proven manager in the ISL.

While Jamshedpur FC were struggling under Antonio Iriondo last season, Owen Coyle was showing Chennaiyin FC and the football fans in India why he is so highly rated as a coach. Coyle took a Chennaiyin FC side who were winless in four matches, three of which were defeats and turned them into world-beaters. Chennaiyin from the bottom after four matches finished fourth in the table at the end of the league and eventually runners-up. Coyle has brought his striker Nerijus Valskis with him to Jamshedpur.

Apart from Valskis, Jamshedpur FC have also made some smart signings as Jackichand Singh from FC Goa is one such.

Jamshedpur FC have a great depth to their squad and will hope they can go the distance this time.
