Ndidi Set For 23rd EPL game; Iheanacho, Success, Balogun Eye First Start in 2019

Wilfred Ndidi is poised to make his 23rd Premier League appearance this season for Leicester City when they visit Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday reports Completesports.com.

The Foxes who are eighth on the Premier League table with 31 points will be eager to bounce back from their 2-1 loss to 10-man Southampton last weekend with Wolves equally desperate to recover quickly from their 3-0 spanking at the hands of Manchester City.

Ndidi was on the score-sheet for the Foxes against Southampton while his fellow compatriot, Kelechi Iheanacho could only make the substitutes’ bench against the Saints.

The 22-year-old Ndidi has now played 72 EPL games scoring four goals to his name since making his debut in January, 2017.

And while Ndidi has so far featured in all 22 of Leicester’s EPL games this season, starting 21 of those, scoring twice and receiving four bookings, Iheanacho has played 86 Premier League matches overall since making his EPL bow in August, 2015.

Iheanacho would be hoping to make his first start in the EPL in 2019 as he vies to play his 19th Premier League match of the campaign from which he has a solitary strike and four assists.

The 22 year old last started a game for Leicester City in their 2-0 loss away to Tottenham Hotspur on the 12th of December,2018.

At Vicarage Road on Saturday, Isaac Success will be all out to honour his 41st Premier League game when Watford who are placed seventh on the standings with 32 points host Burnley.

This season, though, the 23-year-old has a goal in 21 Premier League matches (8 starts), having made 24 appearances in all competitions with three goals to his name.

The Nigerian has so far netted twice in 40 EPL matches ever since making his bow for the Hornets during the 2016/17 season while also receiving four yellow cards.

Elsewhere, Super Eagles centre-back, Leon Balogun will likely be on the substitutes’ bench when Brighton & Hove Albion meet a resurgent Manchester United at Old Trafford also on Saturday.

Balogun has so far featured in nine games across all competitions, eight Premier League matches and an FA Cup tie this season for the Seagulls, scoring once and bagging two yellow cards.

He was an unused substitute for Brighton in their last three games against Everton, West Ham and Liverpool in 2019.
