Though it is often said that the end of a thing is better than the beginning, Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is happy to get off to a winning start in 2021.
In one of the Premier League games on Sunday, Ndidi was in action for Leicester City as they beat Newcastle United 2-1 at St James Park.
James Maddison and Youri Tielemans got the two goals that helped the Foxes to another crucial away win.
The latest victory has seen Brendan Rodger’s men climb to the third spot on the league table and move to within a point of the top of the Premier League standings.
Ndidi was in action for Leicester and saw 90 minutes of action while Kelechi Iheanacho was benched.
The Nigerian midfielder was quite outstanding for the Foxes making more interceptions (6) than any other player on the pitch against Newcastle.
Only Dani Ceballos against West Brom (7) has made more in a single game this season in the Premier League.
The Super Eagles star after the victory at St James Park expressed delight at starting the year on a winning note.
He wrote on his twitter handle: Great to start the year with a win
Ndidi will hope to continue in this fine form especially as the games will be coming thick and fast in the days ahead.Follow us on social media
