Super Eagles Star Earn Praises For Doing This More Than Other Players in the EPL

By Olamide Oyetunji - Leicester City visited Tottenham Hotspur at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a match day fourteen fixture for the 2020/2021 season.

The manager of the away team featured Wilfred Ndidi in the midfield after they lost 0-2 to Everton in midweek but the Nigerian was paraded as a central defender.

Leicester City came out victorious by 0-2 courtesy of a Jamie Vardy penalty and an own goal scored by Alderweireld in the second half ensured total three points for the Foxes.

However, Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi was very crucial in making things work perfectly well for Leicester City in their 4-3-3 setup against tactical genius Jose Mourinho.

The 24-year-old has been unavailable all season long due to injury but his impact on the game was inevitable with South Korean men's national football captain and Puskas Award winner Son Heung-min and Harry Kane kept quite.

According to the stat, Wilfred Ndidi made 19 (Nineteen) recoveries in their win against Tottenham. The most by any player in a single Premier League game in over a year.
