Nigeria international and Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi performed a fantastic role in defence as the Foxes clinched their second consecutive win at King Power Stadium and ascended to top of the Premier League table.
Wilfred Ndidi shone in a centre-back role for Leicester City in their 4-2 victory over Burnley in Sunday’s Premier League game.
The 23-year-old midfielder was again deployed in a defensive role at King Power Stadium after starring in the same position against West Bromwich Albion in their opening league game last time out.
The Nigeria international paired Caglar Soyuncu at the heart of the Foxes’ defence and gave a good account of himself in the encounter, helping his side to secure their second consecutive win.
Brendan Rodgers says his Leicester team are “not even thinking about” about a sustained Premier League title challenge despite moving top for the first time since they were champions in 2015-16.
Sunday’s victory over Burnley gave Rodgers his 100th win as a Premier League manager in his 210th game – Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Kenny Dalglish and Kevin Keegan the only British managers to have reached the landmark in fewer matches.
“It’s only two games. After 10 games you start to get an idea of where the league is at,” Rodgers said.
“We’re not even thinking about that [a sustained challenge]. We’re looking to develop the team and the experiences of last season, both in the league and the cup, will really enrich us.
“Whatever way it finished last season we still had a fantastic season to finish where we did.
“The players have good motivation – they’ve scored seven goals in two games and it shows we’re ready to attack the season again.”
