Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi powered in a late equaliser to save Leicester City from the brink of defeat as they battled to a 1-1 draw against 10-man West United United at the King Power Stadium this evening.
The goal was Ndidi’s first premier league goal since May 2017 when the Foxes defeated Watford 3-0 at home.
The Nigerian was lively throughout the encounter as he marshaled the midfield alongside Spaniard Vicente Iborra with his Eagles teammate, Kelechi Iheanacho and Jarmie Vardy spearheading the attack.
However it was the away side that took the lead through Hammers defender Fabian Balbuena, who found space in the area and tucked the ball past Kasper Schmeichel in goal for the home side. But it quickly went ugly for the visitors as Captain Mark Noble was shown a red card for a reckless tackle just before half-time.

With Leicester City chasing the game, Iheanacho was replaced by Demarai Gray in the 62nd minute. But the Foxes goal came from an unlikely source as Ndidi’s shot was deflected past Lukasz Fabianski in goal for the Hammers and leveled scores at 1-1.
Leicester City are currently placed 12 th on the premier league log with 13points while West Ham United sit a place below in 13th with just eight points.
