Ndidi Sets New Record For Tackles Won In Leicester City Win Over Liverpool


Leicester City 3-1 win over Liverpool helped the club break a poor run of bad results in recent games, with top striker Jamie Vardy scoring a brace for the Foxes.

However their Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi who put in a workaholic performance in the midfield for the entire duration of the game set a new club record for tackles won this season.

Ndidi Won nine tackles against Liverpool; the most any Leicester player has managed in a single league game since the start of last season. Worked well alongside Danny Drinkwater.

His performance played a big role in stifling Liverpool’s impact through the middle as Liverpool German midfielder Emre Can was overran by the 20 year old Nigerian , which lead to Adam Lallana failing to impose himself on the game as opposed to other games .

Despite Vardy’s brace most Leicester City fans voted the Nigerian as the catalyst that propelled them to their first league win in 2017.
