Wilfred Ndidi finished on a high with 4 interceptions, 1 clearance and two blocks against Manchester City, but Leicester City fell 2-1 at the Etihad, though, unfairly some will say.
The 20-year-old made his 15th appearance for the dethroned Kings of England but could not stop Pep Guardiola’s men from claiming three points in the encounter.
Man City scored a controversial opener and Riyad Mahrez’s penalty – which would have leveled the scoreline – was cancelled after he hits the ball against the other foot as he slipped.
CS: “It’s a double touch so correct call. But there was possibly an encroachment before, so people can decide for themselves.” #MncLei

Leicester are well clear of the relegation, floating in 11th spot on the table, but the defeat snapped their two game winning run.
Meanwhile, Ndidi’s Nigerian teammate, Ahmed Musa was on the bench for the duration of the game.
