Leicester City won the Premier League during the 2015/16 season and many saw that as one of the Premier League’s biggest ever shocks. They failed to live up to that title success in the couple of years after, but since bringing manager Brendan Rodgers to the club things have changed.
This season, Leicester have been nothing short of fantastic, something that was highlighted by a recent 9-0 victory over Southampton. They are a team that most people have down as the team most likely to break into the top six this season and knock one of the bigger clubs out but with how they have started, the top four is quickly becoming a realistic aim for The Foxes.
The team has many players contributing right now, with no real star taking the limelight and one of the big reasons for their success is the Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi. The 22 year old has played in all but one of Leicester’s games so far, and although getting forward and attacking is not the name of his game, Ndidi has found himself on the scoresheet twice.
When you look down the many Premier League winners of the past, every team has a player in the same mould as Ndidi, someone who does a lot of work to get the ball back, and someone who can be relied upon while others are bombing forward and leaving themselves out of position. He isn’t the one grabbing the headlines, but more often than not he will be the first name on the team sheet.
He arrived at Leicester back in 2017, signing from Genk for a fee of over £15 million. He was a youngster back then, but that deal looks to be a very good one right now, and should he ever move from Leicester there is no doubt he would command a significant return from the buying club.
His performances will no doubt have attracted the eyes of many, both in the Premier League and in Europe. He is exactly the kind of player that Manchester United would love in their team right now and further afield, he would be a nice fit at a team like Real Madrid, who need someone like him to look after things while others move forward and attack.
Leicester fans will of course be hoping that Ndidi can be convinced to stay, and if he does then there is no doubt their chances of a top four finish significantly increase. There are many football betting sites offering odds on Leicester to finish in the top four, and those odds will shorten as The Foxes continue to pick up points.
According to newbettingsites.uk there are some great betting offers available right now to suit those looking to find a bookmaker who will take a bet on Leicester to finish in the top four. Fans of the club and fans of Ndidi will be hoping that he stays with them, and that he can be a key part in why they finish inside the top four this coming season.
That of course won’t be easy, but right now it is safe to say that there are not four clubs in the Premier League who are playing better than Leicester.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
