‘We ‘re Building Confidence’- Ndidi Discusses Leicester City Win Against Chelsea

Wilfred Ndidi is happy to see Leicester City move top of the Premier League and insists the Foxes are still building confidence following the win against Chelsea.

Brendan Rodgers’ side beat the Blues 2-0 at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night to extend their unbeaten run to six games.

Ndidi’s brilliantly-struck half-volley saw City take an early lead, while James Maddison added the second just the interval.

“I’m very happy. In these games, we wanted to try as much as possible to get these points. I feel very good. I would say there are still more games to come,”the Nigeria international told LCTV.

“As a team, we want the points. We want to play and get the points. So, I just feel it’s one of these games that we really did good, but there’s still more to learn and hopefully better games coming our way.

“It’s very exciting and we feel very happy because it’s part of the season, and there’s more games to come.

“At this time, we just build confidence for the next game, we don’t think about the end of the season.

“We know what we want to achieve, but it comes game after game. We try to focus on the next game.”

Ndidi’s first goal since September 2019 came in fine fashion, and the City No.25 felt it came at the perfect moment after an early spell of pressure from the visiting side.

“If I count, [I’ve scored] maybe four or so, with my left foot!” Ndidi said when questioned about his effectiveness in front of goal.

“It comes once in a while, but I just keep trying, you know! It was really good. It lifted the team.

“It’s something that when you get a goal at that time, you have the confidence to actually go for more.

“So, it was really good, and we stayed compact. As much as we wanted more, we still stayed compact.”

Ndidi missed a substantial part of the season between September and December with an adductor issue, but he has since settled back into the starting XI and has delivered some fearsome performances in the heart of midfield.

“It’s something that the manager just made me understand,” he said of his role in the team. “The gaffer, he just made me understand my role in the team and what he expects me to do – just keep things simple.

“We have quality players in the team and we can move the ball around, so for me it’s just one of these things to just keep the ball simple and let the game keep going.”
