Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi made his 28th Premier League start of the season for Leicester City who defeated Fulham 3-1 at Craven Cottage on Saturday, reports Completesports.com.

Youri Tielemans gave the Foxes the lead after 21 minutes, but Floyd Ayite restored parity for Fulham in the 50th minute.

Jamie Vardy scored twice in eight minutes to secure the Foxes a crucial win.

Kelechi Iheanacho was an unused substitute in the game.

At the Saint Mary’s Stadium, Tottenham Hotspur suffered a third straight league defeat as they were pipped by Southampton.
