Super Eagles player Wilfred Ndidi did a good job to make sure Leicester City beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in Sunday’s Premier League game.
Ndidi’s performance reflected especially in the way he was able to use his role to coordinate with the entire Foxes team from the midfield to achieve their aim of a win at Selhurst Park.
The midfielder delivered an impressive defensive performance on his 10th league appearance this season.
Considering his performance, Ndidi made six tackles – the highest from any player in the encounter – to help the King Power Stadium outfit keep a clean sheet against Roy Hodgson’s men.
Teammates of the Nigerian international, Caglar Soyuncu and Jamie Vardy were not left out as their second-half efforts ensured the Foxes claim maximum points and extend their winning run to four games.
The Foxes win has placed Brendan Rodgers’ men on the third spot on the league table after getting 23 points from 11 games.
While, compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho was an unused substitute for the fourth time this season, Ndidi was on duty and at his best.
Ivory Coast international Wilfried Zaha, who ended with the losing team, also played throughout the match, while Senegal’s Cheikhou Kouyate was replaced in the 74th minute.
