A brace from Jeje Lalpekhlua, Stiven Mendoza and Bruno Pelissari contributed one each.
Mendoza was excellent, scored one and assisted three. Chennaiyin FC were at the bottom of the ISL table very recently. But it was the indomitable form of Mendoza who found goals to earn two consecutive victories which taken them to the top four with 16 points from 12 matches.
Jeje cleverly chipped the ball forward for Mendoza which converted at ease.
Pelissari scored the second by curling it into the goal. Chennaiyin FC made it 3-0 with Jeje. Again it’s Jeje to make it 4.
The doors for Delhi were sealed early in the second session as Chennaiyin FC got their fourth goal of the match in the 54th minute. Raphael Augusto, who has been in incredible form for Chennaiyin FC, came up with a killer pass to find Thoi Singh. The midfielder then spotted Mendoza whose shot was cleared on the line by Delhi defender Anas Edathodika but Jeje was within handshaking distance to put the game beyond Delhi’s reach.
With such a big win, Chennaiyin FC were at the top gear to challenge other contenders.
