Leicester’s Ndidi Posts Superb Performance In Chelsea Stalemate

BY GODWIN AIKIGBE

Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi was arguably the best performer in Saturday’s barren draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The Nigeria international  had 86% passing accuracy, made 82 touches,  second to only Cheslea’s Azpilicueta, made five 5 tackles, most on the pitch and four interceptions, most on the pitch, as he continues to wow Premier League watchers with sublime displays for the Foxes.

The 21-year-old signed from Genk last summer as a replacement for Ngolo Kante, who defected to Chelsea, was recently declared by UEFA as the best tackler in European major leagues.

His Nigeria teammates Ahmed Musa and Kelechi Iheanacho continue with life on the fringes at King Power Stadium. Both players were not featured in the encounter that saw Leicester midfielder Ben Chilwell being handed the Marching Order on 68 minutes. Iheanacho was an unused substitute while Musa was not listed.
