Commenting on Ndidi, Squawka wrote: “You may have been struck by Wilfred Ndidi’s importance to Leicester City during his recent spell on the sidelines. Across those five matches he missed, due to a troublesome knee injury, Brendan Rodgers’ men picked up just two points from 15 available while shipping seven goals.

“He is without doubt the glue which binds everything together in perfect harmony and there’s a strong case his presence allows everyone around him to excel, as we saw in those big wins over Newcastle United (3-0), West Ham (4-1) and Aston Villa (4-0), which happen to be his only league appearances in 2020 so far.”

And on Ndidi’s key stat he has made the most tackles (92) and interceptions (61) of any Premier League midfielder this season.

Premier League’s best midfielders this season ranked:

Kevin de Bruyne  (Manchester City)

Jordan Henderson  (Liverpool)

Jack Grealish (Aston Villa)

Wilfred Ndidi  (Leicester City)

James Maddison (Leicester City)

Georginio Wijnaldum  (Liverpool)
