CHELSEA 1-1 LEICESTER CITY: REDEMPTION FOR WILFRED NDIDI IN STAMFORD BRIDGE STALEMATE

Wilfred Ndidi headed in a rare premier league goal for Leicester City in their 1-1 draw against Chelsea on Sunday.

The 22-year-old combative midfielder made his 100th start for the former league champions and his goal earned them a point at the home of the Blues for the second season in a row.

It followed what was a disappointing start  to the game for Ndidi, who was robbed of possession in the seventh minute by Mason Mount, a mistake that was punished with a well-taken finish that left Kasper Schmeichel wrong-footed. 

Despite their high-tempo start, the hosts went into the half-time break only a goal ahead. After the break, Leicester grew into the game and went in search of their equalizer, spurning a couple of promising counter-attacking situations as Chelsea appeared to tire

For all their endeavour in the second half, Brendan Rodgers’ men finally got their reward, Ndidi atoning for his earlier error by rising highest in the box and powering home a James Maddison corner midway through the second half.
