Ndidi in the heart of defence as Leicester City beat Semi Ajayi’s Westbrom 3 nil!

Wilfred Ndidi was superb in defence as Leicester City began their 2020/2021 Premier League campaign on a brilliant note with a 3-0 victory at the Hawthorns.

The Super Eagles midfielder partnered with Johnny Evans in the heart of defence today in what might be a new role for the 23-year-old.

Check out his statistics below

90 minutes played
88% pass accuracy
3 clearances
3 interceptions
2 tackles made
1 blocked shot

5 successful long balls

Kelechi Iheanacho was an unused substitute in the match while Semi Ajayi was on for ninety minutes, got a yellow card as his side began their Premier League campaign on a disappointing note.

A brace from last season’s top scorer, Jamie Vardy and new signing, Timothy Castagne ensured the Foxes secure all three points away from home as they look to secure a top four finish this season after they missed out on a top four finish last season on the final day.
