Ndidi: Leicester Must Fight Hard To Beat ‘Strong Side’ Man United

Wilfred Ndidi says Leicester City will give everything to beat Manchester United in Tuesday’s Premier League clash at the Old Trafford, reports Completesports.com.

The Foxes will look to bounce back from last Friday’s disappointing 4-2 home loss to Newcastle United when they come up against the Red Devils.

Another defeat could derail their hopes of securing a top-four place but Ndidi insists the former Premier League champions are ready for the challenge.

“It’s one of those games. We have to try and do our best to get something out of it. We’ve got three games left, so it’s that part of the season where every point is really important,”he told LCFC TV.

“It’s a tough game. Obviously, the last time we met, we knocked them out of the FA Cup, but it’s going to be a difficult game. We’ll look forward to it and see what comes out of it. They’re a really good team, a really strong side. The players they have are top quality.

“They’ve really done well in the league and the Europa League. They will also want to finish as high as possible, which is how every team wants to finish the season. It’s something that means we have to go there, see what comes out of it, and we’ll give everything.”

Leicester have a good record on the road this season having won 10 and and lost two of their away Premier League fixtures.

The 24-year-old attributed the success to taking the opposition seriously, regardless of where they are in the league table.

“In the Premier League, it doesn’t matter if you’re playing Manchester United or another team, you’re just going for the points,” Ndidi added.

“We’ve been on a fantastic run away from home.

“We’ve had some ups and downs and some games where we should have got more points, but we’re looking forward to this one and we’ll be trying as much as we can to get points. We’re in the last part of the season so every point is very important for us.”

While the Foxes drew 2-2 with Man Utd back in December, they went on to defeat the North West outfit 3-1 in the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup. Ndidi says Leicester can take confidence from that game and hopes City can build on that form against the 20-time champions.

“It was a good, good feeling, playing against Manchester United,” he continued. “It gave us good feelings and it was good for confidence. We have to prove ourselves on the pitch and play with confidence and work hard for it. Then we’ll see what comes out of it.

“At the end of the day, if it’s something good, then we’ll all be happy.”

  • This is true Ndidi so long as you guys avoid committing comical blunders like you did against Newcastle.

    I tip Iheanacho to add to his goals haul. 🙂

  • Leicester like making things difficult for themselves. They lost Games that were easier for them to win, now they want to win difficult games. Anything is possible, plus man utd might rest some important players. But Leicester have injury concerns plus their morale is low. If only they can motivate themselves and raise their game a little bit, maybe they will stand a chance.
