Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi capped a stellar display for Leicester City in their emphatic 5-0 win over Newcastle United at the King Power Stadium on Sunday evening.
High-flying Leicester City went ahead through Ricardo Pereira’s powerful finish in the 16th minute. Matters then went from bad to worse for the visitors as they were reduced to 10 men shortly before half-time after Isaac Hayden made a poorly-timed challenge on Dennis Praet.
Upon the restart, Leicester City made their extra man count, they scored three goals in ten second-half minutes to put the win beyond reasonable doubt.
First, Jamie Vardy beat Martin Dubravka at his near post to double Leicester’s lead, then Paul Dummett deflected Praet’s cross into his own net to make it 3-0. Vardy headed in the fourth on 64 minutes.
Ndidi then added a fifth goal, taking down a Ben Chilwell cross and firing past Dubravka on the swivel. By virtue of the win, Leicester moved back up to third on the Premier League table.
Ndidi, 22, being a regular in the side, has scored two league goals for the Foxes this term
