Ndidi's Brilliant Season Continues With Assist For Leicester Against TottenhamSuper Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi played his part in his Leicester side's 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur, setting up Riyad Mahrez for the Foxes second in a thrilling clash at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Jamie Vardy got Claude Puel's side into the lead in the 13th minute, getting onto the end of a Marc Albrighton's looping pass to send a phenomenal finish over Hugo Lloris.

Ndidi, who has been dictating play from the center would make his mark thereafter, playing in Mahrez who skipped past Vertoghen before curling a beauty of strike into the top corner.

Harry Kane would pull one back for the misfiring Spurs deep into the second period, finishing off a superb play after Erik Lamela had set up the Englishman with virtually his first touch after coming on.

Fernando Llorente went close as they sought an equalizer, shooting wide as Leicester just about held on to see out the win.

Wilfried Ndidi was in action for the entire duration of the encounter while his compatriot teammates, Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa were not selected in the match day squad.

Leicester move into ninth on the league log with their fourth win of the season, having garnered 17 points while their opponents are in fifth with 24 points after 14 matches.
