edit

After Chhangte failed in his second extended trial with Viking FK, on 30 August 2019, it was announced that Chhangte had joined Chennaiyin FC from Delhi Dynamos on a two-year contract.[37][38] Chhangte played his debut match for the club on 23 October 2019 in a 3–0 defeat against FC Goa.[39] He scored his debut goal for the club in the Southern Derby against Kerala Blasters FC on 20 December, which they won 3–1 after the final whistle.[40] He scored his second of the season on 23 January 2020 in a 4–1 victory over Jamshedpur FC.[41] He scored a brace in the second match of the season against the South Indian rivals, Kerala Blasters FC on 1 February, which they won with a score of 3–6 in one of the high scoring matches in the history of the Indian Super League.[42][43] Chhangte scored his next on 25 February against NorthEast United, where he scored the equaliser in the injury time, thereby taking the match to a 2–2 draw.[44] Chennaiyin had a staggering campaign, as they went on to qualify for the knockout stages of the 2019–20 Indian Super League season.[45] Chennaiyin FC met FC Goa in the semi-finals.[46] Chhangte played in the first leg of the semi-final match against FC Goa on 29 February, where he scored a goal, resulting in the 4–1 victory of Chennaiyin in the first leg.[47] Chhangte scored again in the second leg on 7 March, which they lost 4–2, but qualified through to the final due to the aggregate score of 6–5.[48] He started in the final against ATK on 14 March, which they ended up losing 3–1.[49] Chhangte had a standout season, as he scored seven goal throughout the campaign, thus becoming the second top Indian goalscorer of the season, behind Sunil Chhetri.[50] Chhangte played his first match of the 2020–21 Indian Super League season on 24 November 2021 in a 1–2 victory over Jamshedpur FC.[51] He scored his first goal of the season on 26 December 2020 against East Bengal, where he opened the scoresheet of match, which ended in a 2–2 draw.[52] Chhangte found the net again in the match against FC Goa on 13 February 2021, which ended in a 2–2 draw after a late goal by FC Goa.[53] He scored a brace against NorthEast United on 18 February in the next matchday, which ended in a dramatic 3–3 draw.[54] Chhangte thus ended his 2020–21 campaign with four goals in his name.[55]

Mumbai City FC

edit

2021-22

edit

Lallianzuala joined fellow ISL club Mumbai City FC on an initial six-month loan in the January 2022 transfer window, with a pre-contract agreed, which would be triggered at the end of the season.[56] In his initial loan spell, he played 7 league games but failed to score or assist. He featured in all 6 of Mumbai's AFC Champions League matches, as the club became the first and only Indian team to get a win in the AFC Champions League.[57]

2022-23

edit

At the start of the 2022–23 transfer window, Lallianzuala's permanent transfer to the Mumbai City FC was officially confirmed.[58] In his second season, and first full season, with The Islanders, Chhangte started the season brightly and scored his first ISL goal for Mumbai against Jamshedpur FC on 22 October 2022.[59] This proved to be the catalyst for his season, as he went on to score 10 goals and provide 6 assists.[60] Thanks to his, and the entire squad's contributions, Mumbai lifted the ISL league shield[61] after a record-breaking 18-match unbeaten run,[62] and a new ISL record of 11 consecutive wins.[63]

He was the top scoring Indian in the 2022–23 season with his 10 goals, ahead of the second-highest scorer, club team-mate Bipin Singh, who was on 7 goals.[64] This exceptional performance won him the Hero of the League award,[65] becoming only the second-ever Indian recipient of the award, after Sunil Chhetri won it in the 2017–18 season.

2023–24

edit

Lallianzuala began the 2023–24 season with a 0–2 loss versus Nassaji Mazandaran in the 2023–24 AFC Champions League. He scored his first goal from the penalty spot on 8 December 2023, the third goal in a 0–4 victory away versus Bengaluru.[66] As he did in the 2022 AFC Champions League, Lallianzuala once again featured in every game Mumbai played in the 2023–24 AFC Champions League, but the campaign wasn't as fruitful for The Islanders, as they were knocked out in the group stage of the competition with zero points, and only one goal was scored throughout the six matches they played.[67]

He represented India in the 2018 SAFF Championship,[75] where he netted one goal after a 1−0 lead against Sri Lanka on 5 September 2018, helping India to win their first group match by 2−0.[76] Chhangte was called up for the Indian squad to take part in the 2019 Intercontinental Cup.[77] He scored a goal in India's second match against North Korea on 13 July 2019 while India was trailing by 0–3, which India lost 2−5 after the final whistle.[78] After his impressive form in the ISL, he was included in the squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.[79]
