Despite playing with ten men, the Foxes took the lead through James Maddison in the 33rd minute.

Five minutes later, Dwight McNeil equalized for Birnleyto bring the scoreline to 1-1.

Late in the second half, Wes Morgan scored a late winner for the Foxes who recorded a second straight win in three games under Brendan Rodgers.

Ndidi’s compatriot, Kelechi Iheanacho was an unused substitute for Leicester City who earned valuable three points away from homer.
