Mumbai City FC marquee footballer Nicolas Anelka scored his first goal of the Indian Super league (ISL) to help his side beat Kerala Blasters FC 1-0 at the D.Y. Patil Stadium on Sunday. Catch all the highlights here: (MATCHCENTRE)

Anelka's goal helped Mumbai move up from the bottom spot in the points table to fifth with six points from five matches, just above Kerala, who have four from five games.

The first half was an evenly contested affair with both sides creating opportunities but couldn't quite show the composure to capitalise on the chances created.

Then Anelka chose to take matters into his own hands just at the stroke of half-time.

Kerala midfielder Ishfaq Ahmed brought down Mumbai midfielder Jan Stohanzl just outside the box to concede a free-kick that proved costly for the visiting team.

Veteran striker Anelka slammed the free-kick from 25 yards into the top corner to score in the 44th minute.
