Nigeria ace Ndidi shows character in Leicester City’s draw at Chelsea

Leicester City did well to beat the odds and hold Chelsea to a draw at Stamford Bridge on day 2 of the new Premier League campaign, with Nigeria midfielder Onyinye Wilfred Ndidi once again proving his worth at this level. The Super Eagles rising star scored a beautiful equalizer in the 1-1 draw with the Blues, but the start of the match was anything but promising for the 22-year-old.

Ndidi makes amends

Wilfred Ndidi committed a dreadful error in the 7th minute of the Stamford Bridge clash as Chelsea starlet Mason Mount dispossessed him and scored the opener for the hosts. However, Ndidi did well to make amends for the early mistake, leaving his heart on the field in the remainder of the match. The Nigeria international atoned for the costly mistake that led to the Blues’ opener as he scored the equalizer in the 67th minute of the game.

Wilfried Ndidi’s brilliant header spoiled Chelsea’s party at Stamford Bridge, with the Super Eagles defensive midfielder scoring his fifth Premier League goal. Ndidi is on the right track to become a ‘new N’Golo Kante’ at King Power Stadium, but Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers must warn him against complacency.

Foxes eyeing first win of the season

Leicester City kicked off the new Premier League campaign with a goalless draw with Wolverhampton at their King Power Stadium and seeing that they shared the spoils with Frank Lampard’s troops in London on Matchday 2, Brendan Rogers’ men will be looking to record their first win of the season when they take on newcomers Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday afternoon.

Brendan Rodgers has a number of high-profile players to choose from, but Jamie Vardy must find his goal-scoring touch soon if he is to keep his place in the starting XI. Yet another Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho is pushing for a start and the left-footed attacker could be given a chance to prove his worth in the upcoming league fixtures. Sheffield United are tough to beat at home, but if the Foxes repeat the performance from the second half of the match against Chelsea, they will almost certainly picking up all three points from the Bramall Lane showdown.

Ndidi is 10/1 to extend his goal-scoring run

Despite the fact that defensive midfielders rarely find the back of the net in two consecutive games, we believe that there is a certain value in betting on Wilfred Ndidi to score against Sheffield United. The Nigerian footballer is brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to South Yorkshire.

Ndidi is 10/1 at bet365 to score against the Blades, whereas aforementioned attacker Jamie Vardy is 11/8 at betway to score his first goal of the season. Speaking of Kelechi Iheanacho, William Hill offers odds of 2/1 on the Nigerian forward to find the net on Matchday 3.

Back Leicester City to beat Sheffield United

Despite the fact that Sheffield United made a fine start to the season, sharing the spoils with Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium and beating Crystal Palace at home, Leicester City are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s clash at Bramall Lane.

Lionsbet Review

The Foxes came from behind to hold Chelsea to a draw at Stamford Bridge and seeing that England international James Maddison seems to be on top of his game at the start of the season, we strongly recommend you to back Brendan Rodgers’ team to record their first victory of the season. Leicester City have big ambitions for the 2019/2020 Premier League season, but they need to pick up all three points from matches against contenders for relegation if they are to represent England in European competitions next season.

The Foxes will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the English top flight, therefore, away win should be considered. You should know that Wilfred Ndidi and Co. are 23/20 at LionsBet to emerge triumphant in the Bramall Lane clash.
