ISL: Will Eelco Schattorie change the fortunes of Kerala Blasters this season?

Kerala Blasters have had busy off season after their disappointing ISL 2018-19 season where they finished second from bottom at the end of the group stage. The Kerala management have moved fast to bring in former NorthEast United FC coach Eelco Schattorie who impressed last year. The Dutch coach will be tasked to guide the South Indian franchise to the play-off stage having brought in fellow NEUFC players - Bartholomew Ogbeche and TP Rehenesh - to Kerala. Meanwhile, ATK have roped in Fiji forward Roy Krishna who played for Wellington Phoenix last season. They have done well to bolster their attack while also strengthening their defence. Will Kerela Blasters begin ISL 2019-20 with a win or will they suffer a loss against their most difficult opponents?
