Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers reserved praise for Wilfred Ndidi, calling Super Eagles midfielder ‘an incredible player’ ahead of the Foxes tie against Crystal Palace at the Selhurst Park on Sunday
The Foxes thrashed the Saints for the biggest ever away win in the Premier League last Friday and equaled Manchester United’s 9-0 record victory over Ipswich in 1995.
They go to Crystal Palace tomorrow third in the top flight, two points behind second-placed Manchester City and eight behind leaders Liverpool.
“He is an incredible player. The offensive players get the credit but he does the dirty work,” said Rodgers.
“He has this brain for the game, where he can smell danger and always finds himself there. The timing of his challenge is very good and he’s up there with the top players at winning the ball back.
“When you play a pressing game you need someone like Wilf. His passing is good too, he’s always smiling.”
