Leicester City midfielder, Wilfred Onyinyen Ndidi has been consoled after his side’s 5-1 loss to Manchester City on Saturday, as he has again been granted high match ratings by pundits.
This time out, statistics from Saturday’s game at Etihad Stadium show that Ndidi had the joint-best defensive figures along with teammate, Aleksandar Dragovic out of the 28 players who got part of the action.
The Foxes number 25 made five tackles, two interceptions and four clearances, whereas Dragovic finished the game with six tackles, one interception and four clearances.
City’s top man defensively was Argentina defender, Nicolás Otamendi, who made one tackle, one interception and two clearances over the course of the 81 minutes he spent on the pitch.
However, Ndidi outshone Otamendi, who has been labelled ‘Superman’ by The Citizens’ manager, Pep Guardiola.
On the flip side, Ndidi committed the most fouls during the game, five in total, and picked up a booking in the 71st minute, while the Argentina defender committed just one foul.
Jamie Vardy netted what proved to be a consolation in the first half after Otamendi gave the ball away in midfield.
