Ndidi Bags Assist, As Leicester Stun Liverpool

The Nigeria international played a key role as the Foxes defeated Jurgen Klopp’s men at the King Power Stadium

Wilfred Ndidi provided an assist while Mohamed Salah scored as Leicester City secured a 3-1 victory over Liverpool in Saturday’s Premier League game.

The Nigeria international was handed his second consecutive start since overcoming a thigh muscle strain and delivered an impactful showing in the encounter.

Ndidi starred in front of the back four, comprising of Daniel Amartey, Jonny Evans, Caglar Soyuncu and Ricardo Pereira.

The game started with both sides aiming to secure an early goal but despite their efforts, the first-half ended goalless with the best chance falling the way of Jamie Vardy.

The centre-forward found himself in a one-on-one situation with goalkeeper Alisson but his effort hit the crossbar.

After the restart, Salah broke the deadlock in the 67th minute after receiving a fine backheel pass from Roberto Firmino, thus, extending his fine partnership with the Brazil forward.
