Shearer Lavishes Praise On Ndidi Following Liverpool Performance

Alan Shearer has selected Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, in his Premier League team of the week, following the Foxes’ win over Liverpool last weekend.

Ndidi was part of a Leicester team that dispatched the struggling Reds. The Foxes ran out 3-1 winners, despite going a goal down when Mohamed Salah fired Liverpool ahead.

And Shearer, who was selecting his now regular team of the week for PremierLeague.com, was full of praise for Ndidi. The Nigerian once again put in a fine display, and Shearer praised the midfielder for ‘winning the midfield battle’.

“Gave great protection to the defence when Liverpool were on top, and then won the midfield battle when Leicester hit back so impressively,” Shearer said.

Ndidi has developed into a key player for Brendan Rodgers’ men in recent seasons.

Signed for a reported £15m from Genk back in 2017, the powerhouse midfielder has been instrumental in the Foxes’ rise to being a top Premier League outfit.

A torn abductor muscle ensured Ndidi missed the earlier part of the campaign. But he’s since returned to play his part in a midfield with the mercurial talents of Youri Tielemans and James Maddison.

  • Ndidi deserves the SE Captains Arm Band going forward based on his impact in Big Games on a global stage and his Impact for Leicester as their most Important player and Obviously the Stability he Brings when he plays for SE. It might be that we face the same problem that Leicester Faces when Ndidi doesn’t play. We Struggle to Win games, Just shows the Magnitude of the Man.

    For Me Wilfred Ndidi should be drafted as Captain by the Next Qualifier Games. He is the most deserving player of that Arm Band on our rooster. We need not forget that the Arm Band Also Heightens a players Confidence not that Ndidi needs it because he plays with Huge confidence already but just imagine Ndidi with the Arm band he will be even more Immense than he already is. If that is even Possible. What a Player!!!!
