Premier League: Ndidi Bags Assist, Alisson Howler Again As Leicester Inflict More Miseries On Liverpool 

Wilfred Ndidi was in superb form as he provided an assist as Liverpool collapsed to a 3-1 defeat at  Leicester City which further put their title defence in tatters, Completesports.com reports.

Three goals from James Maddison, Jamie Vardy and  Harvey Barnes with less than 15 minutes left in the game cancelled out Mohamed Salah’s opener.

Alisson for the second game running committed another mistake which resulted in Leicester’s second goal.

Liverpool have now lost three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since November 2014, when managed by current Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers.

Also, the Reds have lost a Premier League game after scoring first for the first time since April 2017 (1-2 vs. Palace). The first time in almost four years. 

With five minutes left Ndidi set up Barnes yo seal the win for the Foxes who temporarily go second on 46 points. Liverpool are fourth on 40 points.

The Super Eagles star made more recoveries (11) and won more aerial duels (5) than any other player in the first half against Liverpool.

His compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho was an unused substitute for Rodgers’ side.

Liverpool took the lead on 67 minutes through Salah who curled home from just inside the penalty, area after Roberto Firmino brilliantly tricked two defenders with a drag back before flicking the ball to the Egyptian.

Leicester equalised in the 81st minute thanks to Maddison whose free-kick evaded everyone and ended up in the net. It was originally ruled out for offside, but after VAR checked it the goal stood. 

The Foxes went 2-1 up following a mistake from Alisson who came charging out only to collide with new signing Kabak, leaving Vardy with the simple task of running the ball into an open net.

And with five minutes left Ndidi then played in Barnes behind an increasingly absent Liverpool defence before he slotted across Alisson.

    Wilfred Ndidi is unarguable the best DM in the epl so far this season. We all know how lcfc tends to struggle if ndidi is out injured, how i wish his effort as a hardworking and consistent football player for the past four or five years that he has being in the epl is given due recognition and all the neccessary hyping he deserve as a player, he would’nt be were he is today. I mean ndidi should be in one of biggest club in the epl, clubs like man u, liverpool, real madrid, barca and the like of them. For me i will keep on saying these over and over again wilf is way to bigger than lcfc.

     
    • All this depend on his manager, ndidi will easily fit in into any of those teams you mention right there except probably real madrid, but still Leicester not a bad team, the manager just need seek a better and lucrative deal when next to renew or he shd just leave.

       
  • I agree that ndidi deserves to play with the big boys in a bigger club but sometimes it comes down to money. Some of these big clubs may not want to pay what he is worth because he is from Africa, but if he was an European or Brazilian player they would be begging him with a 100 thousand a week deal. Right now he is being handsomely paid in Leicester and if he is to move to any other club, they should be ready to double his weekly pay or add a nice percentage to his wages other wise they should go elsewhere. Leicester are not in a hurry to sell him anyway.
