Wilfred Ndidi helped Leicester City knock Liverpool out of the EPL Cup on Tuesday as the Foxes defeated Jurgen Klopp’s men 2-0 at the King Power Stadium.
Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi was in action while Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa were benched for Leicester City who defeated Liverpool 2-0 to qualify for the fourth round of the 2017/2018 Carabao Cup at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night.
Ndidi was on the pitch for 84 minutes frustrating the Reds’ attack before he was rested; only after the death blow had been struck.
Huge moment for #lcfc youngster Hamza Choudhury, who comes on to make his debut in place of Wilfred Ndidi.
Good luck, Hamza! 👊#LeiLiv

Substitute Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani did the damage as the Merseysiders were made to pay the price for failing to make the most of their first-half dominance.
Both sides rung the changes heading into the contest and it was the visitors who made all of the early running with left-back Andrew Robertson particularly dangerous on the left.
Jurgen Klopp withdrew the impressive Philippe Coutinho at the break and Liverpool were never the same, with Okazaki making an immediate impact after replacing the dazed Leonardo Ulloa.
Slimani then sealed the win with a sizzling 25-yard strike to give the Foxes a much-needed lift and leave Liverpool winless in four matches.
The teams will now do it all again when they lock horns in the Premier League on Saturday evening, with Klopp desperately needing a result.
Algerian forward, Islam Slimani dealt the final blow on the 78th minute after Shinji Okazaki ripped into the Reds earlier.
On the day, a 3rd round match, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Ahmed Musa were unused subs.
