Leicester City Wilfred Ndidi did expeceptionally well driving the team he played for during the session with ease, He also displayed some leadership qualities as he was constantly barking out instructions to his teammates in the middle with him.

Newbie Tyroone Ebuehi has a very calming influence when in possession, and loves to take on his man as opposed to most full backs who are mostly looking for a pass even when they can venture forward.
