New Delhi, Dec 29: Chennaiyin FC recorded their fifth win of the season at Jamshedpur on Thursday (December 28), creating a four-point clear lead on the Points Table in current Indian Super League (ISL).
With 16 points, Chennaiyin have earned bragging rights to usher the Year 2018 as the sole leader on the board.
While the southern club will undertake a long 13-hour journey back home, far away in US, the former Liverpool star from Norway John Arne Riise has joined in the celebration of Chennayin's success.
"Well done mate!! Calm penalty," Riise congratulated Jeje through Twitter for his 41st minute match-winning goal, admiring the Mizo snipper's penalty conversion.
