Mumbai City FC will welcome a resurgent Kerala Blasters when they take on the visitors from South at the Mumbai Football Arena on Sunday night. The two teams are separated by just three points at the halfway stage of Hero Indian Super League, and Kerala's new head coach David James has not yet lost a game since his return to the club. Mumbai City are also in a rich vein of form - unbeaten in three games with two of those being victories. But their head coach Alexandre Guimares believes that its a different side they'll be facing when compared to team which drew 1-1 against them in early December this season. "A new coach shakes up everyone - those being left on the bench, those starting, everyone. They have won a very important game away and it has made them alive and that is a warning for us that we cannot give them any chances. They also have a new foreign player who gives them something different. This is a team which will travel energised," he said, referring to new signing Keziron Kuzito, who has made a good start to life in Indian football. That said, Guimares was confident of his side's ability and said that half of their season's mission was complete.UNI XC-KU SHK 1751
